About barunga homes

Be apart of our future

At Barunga Homes, we believe in compassion with dignity, which is why so many South Australians trust us with their residential care. Our skilled staff are constantly seeking new, innovative ways of providing world class support that suits each individual.

All 75 rooms have an ensuite and outdoor views, and are designed to accommodate couples who wish to remain together. Couples are allocated two rooms, with the flexibility of one being a living space and one a bedroom.

With an engaging lifestyle, 24-hour nursing service, flexible dining options and family spaces, Barunga Homes boasts a home-like environment where family and friends are always welcome.

Fully accredited under the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency, we pride ourselves on our unique household model of care which promotes independence and eliminates features which are generally associated with institutionalised and clinical care.

Since moving into Barunga Homes, my quality of life has improved with regular physio treatments, reducing the chronic pain I’ve had. I am so blessed to be in this space and I feel that I am leading a fulfilling and productive life now I’ve settled. I am very grateful for the care and support I recieve. I love how the staff notice peoples emotions, whether it’s a light pat on the shoulder or a smile, their kindness and affection goes a long way!

Need to take a break?

RESPITE

As specialists in aged care, we recognise the extraordinary demands on carers – the unsung heroes of our community. When you are exhausted or overwhelmed you can’t continue to give, so at Barunga Village we have the respite services to give you a break. Overnight and day respite maintains your physical and emotional wellbeing and gives you back your resilience and energy.

To be eligible for day and overnight respite, there are certain eligibility requirements and the team at Barunga Village will assist you with this process.

specialised dementia care

OUR BUTTERFLY HOMES

Dale House - early stage dementia
Eyre House - middle stage dementia
Renni House - latter stage dementia (opening soon!)

Barunga Village is an accredited provider of the international ground-breaking model of dementia care – the Butterfly Household Model of Care.

This model sees a total transformation in the way we care for people living with dementia, with a focus on their emotions, and replicating home-like environments and everyday activities they enjoyed earlier in life.

Our House Member’s live in a world of colour and gentleness – they eat when they want to, they sleep when they want to, and they love and are loved. The walls in our Butterfly Homes reflect colours of the rainbow, the tables are littered with flowers and books, and the music flows.

The standard daily grind no longer exists, instead, each day is filled with household chores and activities that were enjoyed before their life with dementia.

These precious moments are created by how it makes them feel, by the smell and taste, or by the sound and feeling it gives them, rather than the actual physical environment.

We find it invaluable to learn about our House Member’s life stories, so we can emulate that in their own reality.

Our model is so special to Barunga Village, we are proud of the life and love we share with those living with dementia, and we encourage you to visit our Homes to learn more.

For more information, please contact Merrilyn Hewett, Director of Nursing at Barunga Village.

My husband Alexander has been in Barunga Village for seven years after suffering a stroke, where he then started having seizures.

About 12 months ago he was transferred to the Butterfly Homes with early onset dementia. Since he has been living there, I have found Alexander to be a lot more relaxed, and the staff are always finding new and different ways to keep him engaged. I am very glad he was transferred to the Dale House.
