Your move into
Residential Care

At Lutheran Homes Group, we strive to provide a supportive environment that ensures a smooth transition for everyone moving into Residential Care.

We provide a wide range of Residential Care options to ensure residents receive the specific care and support they require. All of our care homes offer palliative care and memory support for those living with dementia, and our dedicated Residential Care staff assist with a variety of day-to-day activities, including cooking, cleaning, laundry, dressing, and showering.

We also offer short-term respite care, that provides the resident’s support person some relief from the day-to-day care responsibilities. This care is provided within the care home with qualified and skilled staff to support the resident.

Why choose Lutheran Homes Group?

The Lutheran Homes Group (LHG) story began almost 100 years ago. Throughout that time, we have strived to become a leader in the provision of retirement living, home care and residential care services in South Australia, prioritising the well-being of residents and staff.

At Lutheran Homes Group, we are continually excited by the changing environment in which we operate and have made listening to and working with our community a priority. That way, we can successfully anticipate and respond to the wishes and requirements of those that we serve.

Co-located Retirement Living

Three of our communities (Fullarton, Glynde and Hope Valley) offer co-located Retirement Living.

This allows residents in Residential Care to remain close to their loved ones if their support needs were to change, and they made the transition to Residential Care. By having both options in proximity, we ensure that families can stay connected and provide the comfort of knowing that their loved one is just a stone’s throw away. It’s a seamless continuum of care that promotes a sense of security and peace of mind for both residents and their families.

Dedicated Lifestyle Coordinators

We understand the many health benefits of maintaining active lives, so we ensure there are lots of social activities, clubs and outings for residents to participate in.

In every community, we have a dedicated Lifestyle Coordinator available on-site from Monday to Friday. These passionate individuals take great care in organising activities, outings, and programs that cater to the unique interests and preferences of each resident. Their utmost priority is the well-being and happiness of residents, as they strive to support them in living fulfilled and joyful lives.

Respite Care

Lutheran Homes Group provides emergency and residential Respite Care within our Fullarton, Glynde and Hope Valley communities.

Respite Care helps you and your caregiver, by providing a short break for both of you. It can enable you and your caregiver to have more time and space to do things independently.

Respite care can be planned ahead of time, for example, if your caregiver plans a trip or has an appointment. It’s also available in an emergency, for example, if your caregiver needs to go to the hospital unexpectedly.

Our Staff

Our team are the heart and soul of our community. Each member of our team is dedicated to delivering exceptional care and support to residents.

With a deep sense of compassion and professionalism, our staff create a safe and nurturing environment where residents can thrive. They go above and beyond to ensure that every individual receives the highest quality of care, tailored to their unique needs and preferences.

Continuously striving for excellence, our staff undertake regular training to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in the sector. This enables them to provide the best possible support and create a positive, enriching experience for all residents.

Fees and charges

The costs for Residential Care depend on a range of factors. Your current financial situation is taken into account and the Australian Government closely regulates the maximum costs you’ll be required to pay.

• A basic daily fee (which everyone will be asked to pay)

This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. Everyone moving into Residential Care will be asked to pay this fee.

• Means-tested care fee (worked out by the Department of Human Services)

This is a contribution towards the cost of your care. The Department of Human Services will work out if you need to pay this fee based on an assessment of your income and assets, and tell you the amount.

• Accommodation costs

Some people will have their accommodation costs paid in full or in part by the Australian Government, while others will need to pay the accommodation price agreed with the aged care home. The Department of Human Services will tell you which applies to you based on an assessment of your income and assets.

• Fees for extra and additional services

You may have to pay extra if you choose a higher standard of accommodation or extra services. We can give you details of these services and the fees that apply. You may have to pay additional fees for other care or services that are above your assessed care needs or the care and services we are required to provide you.

Applying for permanent Residential Care

We admit everyone in Respite Care initially before making them permanent.

It’s important to make sure the needs of you or your loved one is matched to the right room type and level of care. For that to happen, we need to understand more about what level of care is required. There may be a waiting list for a permanent place. The documents in the Application Pack should be completed to be added to the waiting list.

On receipt of your completed application we will send you an acknowledgement and your name will be placed on our waiting list and we will contact you when suitable accommodation becomes available.

When accommodation is available you will be invited to come and have a look at the room, shown around the facility and asked to advise us if you wish to accept the accommodation.

Please complete the Residential Aged Care Calculation of your cost of care form.
