About Southern Cross Care
Southern Cross Care: Better for Life.
Southern Cross Care was created for people, not for profit. So, every decision we make is about how to create a better life for our residents, not make a better dividend for shareholders. Established in 1968, Southern Cross Care (SA & NT) Inc, has a proud history of providing quality aged care services to the people of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Our first project was the construction of a modest group of one-bedroom units at Croydon Park in SA. Throughout the 1970’s, Southern Cross Care continued to grow, with the development of 30 sites throughout the Adelaide metropolitan area and Mount Gambier.
For five decades, we’ve continued to expand our services to meet the growing demands of an ageing population. But while the services we provide continue to evolve, our core values of care, communication, creativity and teamwork have stayed the same. They're the guiding principles that shape how we think and what we deliver.
Our comprehensive range of health & wellness and home support services, our beautifully appointed retirement properties, and our high quality residential care will help you to be Better for life, which is the essence of Southern Cross Care.
And should your health become an issue, which is something all of us should be conscious of as we age, it’s reassuring to know that residential care is provided at Southern Cross Care’s Oakfield Lodge Residential Care on an adjacent property.
Genuine, whole-of-life care: that’s the difference you’ll discover in a not-for-profit organisation like Southern Cross Care. Better for Life.
