About Us


Restvale is a consistent performer under the Federal Aged Care Act and Accreditation Standards.

Restvale is operated with effective governance to deliver a service that exceeds the expectations of our residents and members. As a community-owned not-for-profit, non-sectarian, incorporated association providing quality residential aged care services to people of the Adelaide Hills, it is a fully accredited Commonwealth Government-subsidised Residential Aged Care Facility. We are a consistent performer under the Federal Aged Care Act and Accreditation Standards. There is no non-compliance. Follow-up visits from the Quality Agency indicate all Standards and Expected Outcomes are met. 

Our care home is independently regulated by the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and was  re-accredited in March 2022 for a further three years until 2025. This is an outstanding achievement due largely to the efforts of Restvale’s dedicated staff and the management team led by our Facility Manager, Helen Christakis, who reports directly to the Board.
