Bene has provided residential aged-care and community-care services of the highest quality standards for over four decades.
Our not-for-profit status (your reassurance of our continuing commitment to our community), our dedicated and hardworking staff, our respect for our elders, and our love of family and the Italian influenced home-style cooking make Bene the name to remember.
Yes there are a range of daily activities to choose from and your level of participation is always your choice. Also, during the year, we host many events, where residents, their families and friends can join together in celebration and we also fully respect and support our residents’ religious beliefs.
No. Every year we help over 2500 senior South Australians, many – not surprisingly – of Italian heritage. Importantly though, we’re not just for Italians – instead anyone who likes ‘Italian-style’ is welcome to take advantage of our services.
In fact, a number of our clients and residents (not to mention our staff and volunteers) already come from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Packages and assistance are specifically created to help those from a culturally or linguistically diverse background.
Volunteering is a rewarding and satisfying activity that gives joy both ways. Please contact Bene on 8424 6000 to register your interest. All volunteers are welcomed and integrated with trained workers to provide high quality services.
Bene provides a range of Home Care Services to people living in their own home. This includes Home Care packages and a range of independent services as required. To qualify for government supported packages you will need to be assessed as eligible by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
For more information about all of your in-home care options please call us on 8131 2000.
We understand how important it is, for those who are still able, to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Bene Community Services offer a thoughtful and comprehensive range of respite, care and support programs encompassing both in-home and centre-based services for the aged as well as their carers.
Then as individual needs change, it’s reassuring to know that you can move into any one of our residential aged care communities.
