At Life Care we believe that ageing is not a disability or a policy problem to be solved, rather it is a natural part of life that should be celebrated. It is unique and varies according to our character, experiences, outlook, well-being and family circumstances.
This belief compels us to see beyond conventional attitudes that surround ageing and strive to build a future which delivers an innovative and positive experience for each individual.
Life Care’s strategic direction is not to just continue with business as usual, but to truly flourish and develop Life Care’s Integrated Communities where we, and people like us, will want to age and experience Live Every Day.
Life Care was established by the Churches of Christ in 1950 and first opened the ‘Glenrose Court – Aged Care’ facility at Glen Osmond in the same year.
Originally known as Christian Rest Homes and later Churches of Christ Retirement Services, Life Care – still a not-for-profit organisation and with values consistent with our history– is now financially independent from Churches of Christ and has grown and diversified through generations to meet the changing care needs of older South Australians for more than six decades.
