Home & Community Care
Resthaven provides a range of in-home services which provide support for older people in their own homes.
Resthaven offers in-home care and support to older people living throughout metropolitan Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland, the Fleurieu and the Limestone Coast. Rehabilitation and wellness centres are located at Elizabeth, Marion, Woodville, Murray Bridge and Paradise.
Services depend on the needs of the individual and a Resthaven Coordinator will work with you, and your family and friends if you wish, to create a home care plan for your needs.
The amount of care provided depends on the extent of a person’s care needs, ranging from one hour a week for lower care to much more for those with more complex support needs.
Respite for carers
Resthaven offers a range of in-home, small group, centre based and overnight respite options. All residential facilities offer short-term residential respite accommodation.
