The Life Care Advantage

Our reputation

Since 1950, we've been building a reputation that today is the envy of many: people in our industry speak highly of us; we have a strong Government-compliance record; our customers rate us among the best in the industry. But while this is all true, we're not resting on our laurels. Our Vision is "To be a premier provider of services and accommodation for older people."

Why do we want to be among the best? Because we're passionately committed to helping older people to live their best possible life, at every stage of life. We call it "Inspired Living," and whether you're 55 or 105, our team are ready to help you do just that.

Our people

Nothing has had a greater impact on our reputation than our people. Over the last ten years, we've built a workplace culture that makes Life Care a great place to work; and when people like coming to work, they do good work. We think this is best summed up in the words of one of our carers: "I've been working for Life Care for 18 years, and it just gets better and better!"

We choose people based on their values first, so those who join us are aligned with our Vision and passionate about working with older South Australians. This has paid off, with our customers giving us one of the highest satisfaction ratings in the industry.

Our innovation

If we’re known for one thing (other than for the quality of our people), it’s for our innovation. But it's not just innovation for the sake of it. We believe that innovation should be about the outcomes and experiences it enables.

Some of our innovations include:

  • The first in Australia to hire an Executive Chef in Residence, world-renowned Bethany Finn
  • The first in Australia to hire a Musician In Residence, Kelly Menhennett
  • Our multi-award winning Assisted Living and Residential Care Home campus, Gaynes Park Suites and Gaynes Park Manor
  • Our first-in-the-southern-hemisphere and award-winning mobile call bell system, Call Assist
  • Our partnership with the world-renowned, UK-based Dementia Services Development Centre
  • Our holistic wellbeing program based on the internationally-celebrated Hoffmann Program

Our "At Home Promise"

While many home care providers are moving to less-convenient appointment times ("We'll be there sometime between 9 and 12"!), we believe that you shouldn't have to put your day on hold while you wait for the right person to arrive. That's why we offer our "At Home Promise":

"We'll provide the right people, the right care, on time, every time, or our visit is free*.”
