Meet The Board Members
We strive to enhance people’s lives by genuinely caring, not just giving care. Our person-centred philosophy of care is founded on the belief that every person is a valued individual in their own right, worthy of respect and deserving of the choice to live their life as they please.
Even when faced with health challenges, people can still continue to live a quality life. With this in mind, we help people get the most out of their lives by acknowledging and embracing the individual’s abilities and promoting self-esteem and autonomy, all while providing holistic care. We cater for a person’s physical care needs as much as their psychological, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing.
Our Residential Aged Care facility Eloura enable ageing in place. Our ageing in place model ensures that our residents have the opportunity to receive a seamless transition of aged care services in line with their changing individual circumstances. Providing continuity of care within familiar surrounds – from low care through to high care and, when the time arrives, palliative care – gives our residents emotional security and peace of mind. They know that they won’t have to move just because their care needs increase.

Leisure & Lifestyle Team
Our leisure and lifestyle team share a passion for helping people get the most out of life by staying active, stimulated and connected. Our residents are provided with enriching lifestyle activities that encourage socialisation, but as always, we respect personal choice regarding participation in our programs.
There’s always something going on at Eloura to inspire our residents! Our dedicated team tailor individual and group lifestyle programs that meet residents’ interests, cater for a range of capabilities and encourage participation.
Classic table games like bingo and dominoes are always popular and a great excuse for residents to socialise. Likewise, a fantastic range of concerts and visiting performers is always on offer, and our arts and crafts classes cater for all ability levels. Other events held throughout the month include singalongs, cooking, movies, exercise and walking groups, pet therapy, pamper sessions, hand and foot rubs and happy hour.
Regular outings take our residents to social outings, as well as scenic drives throughout the Liverpool Plains. Our staff are always on the lookout for interesting venues to visit for morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea, and if the weather is fine, we enjoy picnics in gardens and parks.
Residents are encouraged to treat Eloura as they would their own home.
We also encourage residents to go on outings or stay overnight with family and friends. Staff will help residents get ready for these occasions and can arrange transport if required.
The bright and homely design of Eloura allows residents to relax in a number of sitting areas on each floor, providing for entertainment and comfort in pleasant surrounds.
Our visiting physiotherapist is an important member of our team. They perform many tasks including pain management, rehabilitation, manual handling, and group exercise classes.
Our visiting Podiatrists provide basic foot care (including nail cutting/reduction, corn enucleation and callus debridement) Help choose appropriate footwear, monitor and address circulatory and sensation issues that may cause complications in residents with peripheral vascular disease and/or diabetes. They also might attend to lower-limb wounds and ulcers, diagnosis and treatment of lower-limb and foot musculoskeletal pathology to keep residents on their feet, aiming to prevent falls and maintain resident’s activity, especially ambulation.
Proper nutrition is essential for maintain good health and independence. We aim to prevent malnutrition that is often experienced within many age care facilities by having our visiting dietician regularly review our meals and menus to ensure they are nutritionally balanced. Often tailored meal plans are prepared for individual residents needs.
Our resident hairdresser Leanne visits on a Tuesday from 9am – 12pm and our residents are able to schedule in time to be pampered.
