Barunga Village Residents

Founded in the early 1980s, Barunga Village was established like many other small town nursing homes – as a modest extension to the local hospital. However, its two managers: Merrilyn Hewett, Barunga Village’s Director of Nursing, and Maureen Coffey, Business Manager had a bigger vision for their community, of an holistic aged care service that would rival anything in urban Australia.


More than three decades later, Barunga Village is regarded as one of the leaders in aged care in South Australia and a trail blazer in fields such as individualised accommodation and dementia care.

Community owned and operated, Barunga Village is a regional success story and a major contributor to the health and economic development of Port Broughton and its farming hinterland.
