Independent Living

At LHI we are very proud of the services we provide and believe we are market leaders in retirement and aged care services. In addition to the many awards for our innovative services and facilities, we were also the winner of the Inaugural National Award for Excellence for Retirement Living.

The LHI story began 50 years ago because an elderly Adelaide couple ‘had a dream’ to create a very special retirement community.  Today LHI Retirement Services operates two of the largest retirement villages in South Australia, at Glynde and Hope Valley, has over 1000 clients and employs over 500 staff in a wide range of skill areas, including: nursing, hospitality, maintenance, grounds and gardening and administration.

We continue to be excited by the changing world of retirement living.  Listening to and working with our Community has been the key to our ability to successfully anticipate and respond to the wishes and needs of those seeking a very special retirement experience.

LHI’s recent development at Glynde is just one example of how ‘future planning’ translates into action. In Bowillia Court, 37 new, architect designed, contemporary, Independent Living Units (ILU’s) have been built. These state-of-the-art homes incorporate many advanced environmental and technological innovations that will set a new standard of housing which will exceed the expectations of our clients today and into the future. 

Our objective will always be to provide excellence in all of our services and facilities at LHI.

“The support from LHI staff prior to and since our move, was beyond all expectations. We have never been so thoroughly welcomed....our neighbours and other residents have been amazingly kind to us.
Our unit is beautiful. We love it here and don’t miss our old home at all!” Quote from an ILU Resident
