At some stage the amount of care needed may become too much for you to stay at home. Or you may decide to move into aged care or retirement housing for security, support and friendship.
If you need extra care and help, consider help at home before you decide to move.
If you can't stay at home, there are housing options which provide support and care.
Aboriginal housing for people who need care
The Aboriginal Elders Village provides housing for Aboriginal people who need daily support and care. They also provide short-term care so that carers can have a break.
The Council of Aboriginal Elders of SA has a list of Aboriginal aged care facilities across the state.
Go to our aged care and retirement housing pages for mainstream housing options.
