Why our nursing home feels like home 

Feel like you’re at home in our light-filled residence

Our nursing home is located in Parkside, Adelaide. Residents enjoy social activities in our spacious living areas. Our courtyard garden is a lovely place to sit and read a book, enjoy the sun, and chat with friends and family. Our resident cats Percy and Poppy are always available for a pat. 

Sleep peacefully in our spacious rooms

Our single rooms are modern, spacious and fully furnished. They each have a state-of-the-art Wibo bed and pumpless air mattress, a private ensuite, individually-controlled air conditioning, smart TV’s and garden views. We encourage our residents to bring their own belongings and make their rooms feel like home.

Maintain health and wellbeing with our lifestyle and activity programs

At St Louis, we're redefining aged care and what it means to be in a nursing home. We offer a range of exercise and artistic programs aimed at ensuring our residents are engaged in a variety of fun, and intellectually stimulating activities.

Our swimming program was recently awarded the DRTA 2019 Award for Excellence. Our staff are committed to helping our residents live a fulfilling life and we will do everything we can to ensure they enjoy their time here. 

Stay socially active with our weekly outings

Regular social outings to cafes, libraries, cinemas, shows, museums and other local community clubs enable our residents to stay connected with their community. We have our own buses and take residents out to places they enjoy weekly.

We welcome family members and friends to join us on these outings.

Mum’s stay was the best thing that I, and she could have hoped for. The kindness and consideration of all the staff, along with the dedication to finding ways to meet Mum’s individual and sometimes unconventional needs, was short of amazing. I can’t thank you all enough, and I would highly recommend the St Louis Nursing Home to anyone who has a relative or friend who may need this type of care.
