  • When both of my children went off to university I was at a bit of a loose end. I didn't really want to return to full time work but I knew I still had a lot to give. Now I have a weekly meeting with several Barossa Village residents - we have a coffee, a chat and I help them with their shopping. It's a rewarding part of my week.

  • "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."

  • "Dad has dementia and was just getting too much for Mum. She didn't want to give up on him, but she need a break so we arranged a trip to Melbourne to see an AFL game with the grand kids. The Barossa Village Respite Care program was a lifesaver for both of them."

    David (48), Tea Tree Gully
  • "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
  • "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."
