Established in 1935 as a Home Mission of the Methodist Church, Resthaven is an aged care community service associated with the Uniting Church in Australia. Every day, Resthaven shares the lives, aspirations, experience and wisdom of more than 9,000 older people and their carers, supporting them to remain independent for as long as possible.
Services are provided throughout metropolitan Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Limestone Coast.
Resthaven provides high quality, responsive services according to individual needs and availability. Services extend from basic support to very high care at home, to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, residential aged care at ten locations, as well as respite for carers.
Around 130 people live independently in Resthaven retirement units or apartments.
Community care and support options assist approximately 8,000 older people to live independently at home and maintain their social connections. Services include social support groups, health and wellbeing programs, professional nursing and allied health services, in-home support and clinical care, planned respite for carers, veteran-specific services and assistance with care and housing.
Our Work with Resthaven
In early 2013 Resthaven commissioned a series of 10 videos to promote the facilities and services of all their sites across South Australia. Working closely with the Resthaven Public Relations team, we filmed at all the different locations and met a multitude of fantastic people, both residents and those caring for them.
We also created two new induction videos to help introduce new people to Resthaven and to explain the core principles of their work ethics.
It really does highlight the positive role played by these types of organisations and the relationships that are built over several decades with their residents and clients.
I am proud to be working with Resthaven and deeply admire the humble work they undertake on behalf of older people and their carers in the community.
