Community Lifestyle
We offer a broad and interesting range of Community Lifestyle activities for people who are seeking stronger social connections or to enable carers to receive respite from their caring duties.

Our Community Lifestyle program is flexible and offers a variety of activities from Monday to Friday.

Mondays and Thursdays
Our programs on these days are primarily focussed on increasing confidence and developing social networks at times of loneliness and to generally improve the wellbeing of older people. People with memory loss are very welcome. The programs offer a range of interesting activities that our older people have indicated a genuine demand for.

The activities are often delivered in small groups or individual activities in a group environment, with male and female staff/volunteers involved.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are a key element in increasing social connections.

Tuesdays
Everyone is welcome to our Tuesday Community Lifestyle groups. We enjoy an outing on a bus at least once a month and we also undertake other activities in the Barossa area on a weekly basis. We have frequent open discussions with attendees to ensure our outing destinations and activities meet the expectations of participants to stay connected in their community.

We are expanding our program to offer regular special interest group activities.

Wednesdays
Socialise with others and enjoy woodwork, copper art, wood burning or stained glass craft at the ‘Tinker Shed’. This is a joint program with the Lions Club on Wednesday mornings at Nuriootpa.

Fridays
The Friday Café at the Joy Rice Centre has become very popular with our group of regular locals who look forward to its warm, friendly environment. Enjoy a two-course lunch along with juice or a glass of Barossa wine on arrival, then stay on for tea or coffee before an entertaining afternoon including a game or two of Bingo.

Transport to our Community Lifestyle programs
Transport is available where needed.

Fees
A low fee is payable for each attendance. Varying rates apply if paying privately, as part of the Home Support Program or for people receiving services through a Home Care Package.

  • "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 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
  • "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."
    James (48), Melbourne
  • "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
  • 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.
    Glenys (46)
  • "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
