Longridge Aged Care

by agedcare101 on 20/12/2016

Naracoorte Home for the Aged Inc. (usually referred to as “Longridge” ) was established in 1969 by the Naracoorte community to provide affordable accommodation and services for any retired aged or disabled person, irrespective of financial circumstance, race, colour or creed.

Our focus is to support residents through the ageing years from Independent Living Units and onto hostel residential care, should that be required.

Longridge is a private ‘not – for – profit’ community organisation owned by the Naracoorte and Districts community. Formed more than 45 years ago, today it is a large and dynamic organisation accommodating 50 residents within the hostel and 49 Independent Living Units. At least 100 aged or disabled people call Longridge home.

Facilities and services are designed to promote independence whilst providing the support and assistance we need as we age.

The Accredited Hostel is a commonwealth funded ‘Ageing In Place’ facility that allows residents to enter care at low or high levels even providing extensive palliative care services to enable residents to  pass away ‘at home.’

Longridge proudly supports a comprehensive lifestyle program that ensures the focus of residents’ lives embrace the values of community, socialisation and fun within a framework of high quality care.
