Residential Care

For some people, a time comes when you no longer feel safe and comfortable in your own home.

You might have had several injuries or be suffering from an illness which makes you feel vulnerable, and you might need more care than can be safely provided at home.

You might have lost the ability to cook for yourself and need more regular and nutritious meals.

Or you might have lost your partner and just feel lonely.

Barossa Village’s residential care team respects your privacy and dignity. The aim of the care we provide is to offer as much independence as you need, within a warm, supportive and secure living environment.

We provide a full suite of residential care services through The Residency, a state-of-the-art accommodation complex in Nuriootpa in the heart of the Barossa.

Ensuite rooms
The Residency provides individual air-conditioned rooms with ensuite bathroom and toilet facilities and a range of communal living areas.  At present, our Maximum refundable deposit is $400,000.00, or, our Maximum daily payment is as set by the department

24 hour service
Our 24 hour caring staff provide every possible service to make your life fulfilling, from nutritious and health meals to massage, aromatherapy, physiotherapy, podiatry, speech therapy, dietary advice and hairdressing.

Social and spiritual
There is a diverse social activity program, a comprehensive library and opportunities for a range of religious and spiritual nurturing and support.

Dementia care
Dementia is the fastest growing health issue in Australia. Dementia in all of its forms can be devastating for the person and their families. Barossa Village has highly trained staff to ensure dementia sufferers are cared for in a calm and nurturing environment. We endeavor to make the environment and the care we provide relate to the care recipients lived experience.

Palliative care
Our trained palliative carers provide a warm, caring environment with personalised programs of massage, pain management, counselling and spiritual support.

Families and visitors
We naturally encourage families to participate in the development of your personalised care program and to visit as frequently as they wish.
We also have an active local volunteer visitor program which generates new and interesting conversations every day.

To assist consumers in gaining an understanding of the fees and co-contributions in entering residential care, the Seniors Information Service has developed and released information sheets that will provide information about accommodation payments, daily care fees and income test fees.

  • "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."

  • 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.

  • "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 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)
  • "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
