UnitingSA is an internationally accredited non-for-profit organisation that delivers innovative, quality and person centered services to people and communities across South Australia. Since our establishment in 1919, our vision has always been to create a compassionate, respectful and just community in which all people can participate and flourish.
We boast a diverse portfolio of services and offer support and solutions across many disciplines and sectors including aged care, community welfare and employment services.
Every year our 800 staff and a network of over 160 volunteers support more than 25,000 people including the elderly, vulnerable young people, adults and families, people with mental health disabilities, individuals seeking employment and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our clients always remain at the centre of what we do.
We are committed to providing tailored care focusing on the wishes, needs and ability of every older person.
- Aged Care Homes: We operate seven aged care homes in Western and Northern Adelaide. For every resident, we seek to provide individualised quality care that respects cultural, spiritual and linguistic diversity. All our residential sites meet Commonwealth accreditation requirements as set out by The Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency.
- Home Care Services: We offer a range of home care support programs to help people stay in their own homes for as long as possible. A typical Home Care Package includes personal care, domestic assistance, personal assistance and/or clinical care, and goal focused planning that allows for individual choice.
- Independent Living Units: Our independent living options offer affordable accommodation for seniors who want to live in Adelaide’s northern and western suburbs. Perfectly positioned for a relaxing retirement lifestyle, our homes provide comfortable, safe and secure living within friendly village communities. All units are self-contained and require residents to pay an affordable, one-off ‘entry contribution’ that enables them to live in a unit for the rest of their life or until they decide to leave. This payment amount varies between retirement village locations.
