Welcome to Estia Health Kensington Gardens, our aged care home located in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia
Estia Health Kensington Gardens is an elegant double-story traditional home, perfectly positioned minutes from ‘The Parade’ shopping centre and café precinct, cinema and public transport. The home sits among relaxing gardens with shaded courtyards and outdoor entertaining areas for residents and visitors to enjoy.
The experienced clinicians, carers and hospitality teams look after all aspects of a resident's care including clinical, social and overall wellbeing and offer dementia and palliative care services, which can be accessed for short-term respite care or a longer stay. The home has a Memory Support Unit to provide a safe environment for residents requiring additional support.
The home has single rooms with ensuite, some opening towards the courtyard and others with views to Kensington Gardens Reserve. The activities program is full and varied, and residents enjoy a calendar of cultural events as well as a worship program, with residents regularly joined by young visitors from kindergartens and school children taking part in activities or enjoying a chat with their new friends over high tea.

Every day we hear of horrendous cases regarding the care of our elderly in aged care homes. We rarely hear about those who do a good job. Recently a dear friend of mine was sent to Estia Health Kensington Gardens for respite. From the moment she was installed in her room, I sensed a sigh of relief from both of us; this was a place where the residents came first. She was given a bright, airy room where she was able to bring in some of her own things, but it was the care she received that impressed me. I did not get a sense of urgency from any member of staff. My friend demanded high care, well beyond what I would have expected of this place to give, but no matter what I asked for there was no hesitation in providing it. The care was gentle, compassionate and patient. I visited at all times of the day and the care and attention were the same. Thank you Estia, all of you, for being such wonderful carers and for making my friends’ last days so comfortableFriend

What will it cost?
When moving into an aged care home the amount you pay will depend on the home and room you choose, your own circumstances and means to pay for the available care and services. Your accommodation and care costs may be partly or fully covered by the government, which will be determined by a means assessment.
Will it suit my needs?
We have 68 homes in NSW, QLD, SA and VIC and all offer care for those requiring a short-term or longer stay, as well as helping people requiring urgent care. Our experienced and compassionate teams care for people with a range of complex conditions, including people living with dementia, as well as those requiring palliative and end-of-life-care.
What are the next steps?
Moving home is a big decision, especially when it comes to aged care. Let us guide you through the process step-by-step with the right information at the right time. We will support you from your initial enquiry, answering your questions on the types of care we offer, the costs involved through to when you're ready to move into your new home.
