Bene The Italian Village

Part of Bene Aged Care

The Italian Village in St Agnes has 163 residential aged care places, offering 24-hour nursing assistance, personal hygiene assistance, daily living assistance, medication management, continence support and behavioural management. In addition, residents have access to a fine selection of allied health professionals, including occupational therapists and physiotherapists.

Residents are assessed upon arrival to determine a social plan in liaison with family members. This plan is designed to maximise the resident’s wellbeing and lifestyle.

Rooms are mostly single with ensuites, while communal lounges are enjoyed by all residents, family members and friends. Visitors are also welcome to join meals at lunchtime and dinnertime.

Those living with dementia have a special secure unit which caters to 25 people. The building sits adjacent to the gum-lined creek and commissions specially trained nurses and therapy staff to assist with unique care and activity programs.

A partnership with Alzheimer’s Australia SA provides families and carers with the opportunity to engage their amazing Carer’s Support Group and Carer’s Education Group.

The Italian Village hosts many special events throughout the year, from feast days and Christmas family BBQs to Father’s Day and Mother’s Day celebrations. The residents and the community band together during these vibrant occasions, ensuring residents retain their vital sense of belonging and personal worth. It is the Italian Village policy that older people should continue to grow and experience new challenges.

In-house activities include traditional bingo, cards, cooking class, art class, dancing, armchair travel and a la carte dinner parties. Lifestyle coordinators are always searching for innovative new ways to liven up residents’ days.

The Italian Village has maintained the high level of care set by the Aged Care Standards Agency. The home provides services that connect residents to the Italian population, along with many other nationalities who enjoy the good culture and food for which the home is well renowned.

Review Guidelines.

Reviewing an aged care provider is a great way to share your thoughts. But please follow the policies listed below when writing a review.

We will remove content that violates any of the policies listed below:

  • Conflict of interest: Reviews are most valuable when they are honest and unbiased. Please do not review your own aged care service or that of a competitor.
  • Off-topic reviews: Do not post reviews based on a third party experience, they must be your own. Our reviews are not a forum for general political or social commentary or personal rants.
  • Impersonation: Do not post reviews on behalf of other people or misrepresent your identity or connection with the aged care provider you are reviewing.
  • Language: Do not use offensive, profane, or obscene language. We will remove reviews that represent personal attacks.
  • Personal and confidential information: Do not post reviews that contain the personal and confidential information of another person.
  • Spam Content: Please no spam. Reviews should be a genuine reflection of your experience with an aged care provider. Do not include promotional content or advertising in any form. Duplicate material will not be accepted.
  • Telephone Numbers and Web Links: To prevent adverts and spam, we do not permit phone numbers or web links.
  • Hate Speech: We do not allow reviews that advocate against people based on their ethnic origin, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation or age.
  • Aged Care Reviews is not a complaints system. Reviews must be fair and reasonable. Any defamatory statements reflecting a personal experience that has not yet been taken up with the respective provider will not be accepted. If you have a personal complaint to make about an aged care facility we encourage you to contact your provider directly using the details provided on their listing. Alternatively you can submit a complaint via the Government’s Aged Care Complaints Scheme.
