We have been supporting and caring for older people since 1964 when the facility was converted from the local hospital into an Aged Care Facility.
Since the inception of the facility, building additions and modernisations have created a delightful blend of cosy, character-filled courtyards, pleasant gardens, light and airy common areas, and spacious, personal en-suite rooms. Every room has a pleasant outlook, and we encourage residents to add their own personal touches to their room.
More than a residential care facility, Restvale is dedicated to creating real opportunities which enhance the lives of our residents and positively encourage residents to maintain their independence and lifestyle choices.
Our belief in older people living full and active lives is reflected in our extensive lifestyle program and the overall vision of Restvale. We listen to our residents and find out what’s important to them to ensure individual interest and emotional needs are met.
Restvale is a home away from home. As well as maintaining interests, and often finding new skills and hidden talents, residents enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, attending family gatherings and family excursions, as well as being a part of the local community.
We have a unique relationship with our local community, and this connection creates a greater sense of belonging and often enhances the general wellbeing of our residents.
From the local businesses and health services to local community groups, schools and churches, Restvale not only benefits in many ways from the wider community, but also contributes to it with the services it provides and the activities it carries out.
As a Not-for-Profit organisation, Restvale is governed by a Board of conscientious, hard working members who believe in the care and lifestyle of our residents.
If you’d like to see Restvale, or learn more about our activities and services, please contact us and our helpful team will tell you more.
Lobethal was settled in 1842 and represents the third wave of permanent German settlement in South Australia. Lobethal commenced as a cottage industry and agricultural community. From 1914 to the Second World War, the town was a very prosperous industrial centre allied to a thriving rural community. In more recent time the industrial component related to the Onkaparinga Woollen Mills has closed. This building now incorporates a thriving country market that operates every weekend.
The position of the Lutheran Church both spiritually and physically was central to the development of the town and continues to play an integral part today.
MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR OF CARE
I have been very fortunate to be a part of an organisation like Restvale since 2004 as Director of Care. Although I am not a local hills person, I feel proud to be a part of an organisation that has incredibly strong beliefs, values and commitment to providing a range of quality services to the residents who reside at Restvale.
As a Not-for-Profit organisation, Restvale invests funds received directly back into the facility for improving infrastructure and maintaining a highly skilled workforce. I am proud of the achievements Restvale has made over the past 12 years ensuring stability for the organisation through strategic planning and a strong Board of Governance commitment to meeting further challenges.
