  • 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.

  • "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)
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."
