Located in the Riverland, Calvary St Catherine’s Retirement Community residents feel part of a family.
Opening in September 2021, work is almost complete on our new residential aged care facility at Calvary St Catherine’s Retirement Community. The new facility will accommodate 50 residents, specialising in dementia care and on-site specialist services at McGilton Road, Berri and will replace the current facility at Coneybeer Street.
Design features include single rooms with en-suites, access to a café and indoor and outdoor activity areas for residents and their families. The new facility will offer the latest in aged care to the residents and presents the opportunity to create a community precinct by exploring advantageous connections with the proposed new medical centre and developing a layout that includes future expansion opportunities.
We have two different care options to suit you or your family member’s needs:
- Residential Aged Care – Permanent accommodation with specialist care services
- Respite Care – Short term accommodation for up to two weeks

Calvary respite accommodation is a great way to get the support you need when your regular carer is away, needs a break or has other commitments.
- 1 or 2 week stay
- Up to 9 weeks per year
- Support when carer away
Respite accommodation provides support for you and your carer.
Residential Respite Care can provide your carer with a break. It may give them time to manage work commitments, handle family responsibilities, enjoy a weekend away or have an extended holiday.
It is also a good way to see if a Residential Care Facility is the right fit for you. Our respite accommodation gives you an opportunity to experience our wonderful care and friendly community before you make a formal commitment.
Please call 1800 052 222 and speak to Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre – SA.
You can be entitled up to 9 weeks of Respite Accommodation per financial year.
