  • "My Dad really feared losing his independence but after Mum died he wasn't eating properly and had several falls. The Residency staff were very sensitive to his needs and made sure he had plenty of space and time to adjust when he moved in. Now he has made several mates, has put on weight and is telling jokes again."
    John (51), Tanunda
  • "I live by myself in my own home at least 20 kilometres from Barossa Village. But I get involved in all of their social programs including trips to wineries, picnics and film afternoons. I really look forward to my days out and a few laughs."
    Jane (82), Angaston
  • "We love packing the caravan and just heading off for a couple of months when we feel like it. Our cottage is monitored for security and the garden is maintained while we are away - it makes life very easy and flexible."
    Bill (65) and Maureen (62)
  • "We just love retirement in the Barossa. It is a real country community but with all the health, shopping and sporting facilities you would expect in the city."
    Joe (58) and Helen (55)
  • "I just wasn't aware that a thing like Transitional Care existed. Mum was recovering from a bowel operation and we just couldn't lift her so Barossa Village arranged a care program until she was back on her feet - which freed us up to cook her healthy meals and spend quality time with her."
    Bronwyn (49), Angaston
  • "My 80 year old mother had a fall and broke her shoulder. The level of service offered by Barossa Village was incredible - showering, dressing, driving to doctor's appointments. I live interstate and couldn't be with her all the time. It made me feel a lot happier that she was well looked after and she also recovered quickly."
