Holly Residential Care Centre is conveniently located close to the southern end of the Southern Expressway, adjacent to a small shopping centre and near to the Onkaparinga River National Park. The Centre is on a bus route to Colonnades Shopping Centre, which is less than 5kms away, and connected by other transport routes to the wider metropolitan area.

Holly provides permanent care for both low and high level care residents in an environment that compensates for diminished abilities, while still allowing some challenge of risk-taking. The centre has a homelike design with many different indoor and outdoor spaces, providing an environment that supports social interaction between residents, staff and visitors while providing opportunities for each person to maintain the degree of privacy that they desire. 

Features of the centre
Spacious single and semi-single share rooms accommodating 140 residents each have an en-suite bathroom and telephone/computer sockets. Rooms enjoy an outlook onto landscaped gardens or attractive courtyards and each has an individually controlled air-conditioning unit.

The Centre offers a number of large and small lounge and dining areas, each furnished and decorated in a homelike manner, as well as a chapel which can be booked for celebrations and family gatherings. There is a coffee shop serving drinks and light snacks, a hairdressing salon and a small shop selling pre-loved goods. 

The Holly Residential Care Centre offers ‘ageing in place’ so the need to move rooms is minimised when the resident’s care needs change. The Centre also offers a secure wing (Memory Support Unit) for residents with dementia which has its own facilities and appropriate secure circulation areas that do not unduly restrict freedom.

Lifestyle program
Holly’s Lifestyle Program offers a diverse range of activities, for both groups and individuals, to promote socialisation and to encourage residents to retain their interests or learn new skills.  Activities are diverse and include exercise classes and cooking sessions among other things.There is a core program of events and activities – based on continuing assessment of resident needs and interests.  In addition we coordinate access to community based events as required.
