Home Care

We understand that most older people prefer to remain independent in their own home or retirement living unit rather than move into residential care.

Barossa Village provides a comprehensive range of services to meet the needs of older people living at home. You can feel confident knowing that we can support you over the longer term by increasing our services, as and when you need them.

We offer:

  • Entry-level support such as domestic help, home maintenance and personal assistance to ensure you continue to participate in community life and maintain social contact. This is provided through our Commonwealth funded Home Support Program;
  • The full range of coordinated care for older people with basic, low, intermediate and high care needs through our Government-subsidised Home Care Packages;
  • Our private Barossa Home Care service, an alternative for older people to pay direct for their support needs or use the service as a ‘top up’ to receive additional support; and
  • An interesting range of Community Lifestyle activities offered at our Nuriootpa centre, including day trips and excursions.

Our Community Care Team operates from our office at The Lodge, 14 Scholz Avenue, Nuriootpa. Although our name says Barossa.

Our service area extends beyond the Barossa area to Eudunda in the North, South to Mount Pleasant and across the West via Gawler and through to the townships of Mallala and Two Wells.

  • 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)
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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)
  • "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
