St Louis has provided individualised aged care services in Adelaide for over 70 years.
Since then, our aged care services have grown to look after older Australians in Victor Harbor, the Fleurieu Peninsula and the Adelaide Hills. Our aged care services include our boutique nursing home in Parkside, with independent living units next door, and St Louis on Sea which provides specialised 24x7 dementia and respite care in an eight-room home on the beachfront at Victor Harbor.
We’re a third generation family business whose history began with the first nursing home in 1946. Our service to the community is about loving and caring for humanity and our approach to aged care is underpinned by our four values which are: dignity, respect, choice and fairness.
Fostering a culture of family values
Maris Naish who runs the business today is the third-generation administrator of St Louis. Throughout the history of our three generations, our family members have been actively involved in St Louis spending time with residents and developing an understanding of how to foster a culture of care with family values.
The sense of family at St Louis is valued and maintained by both staff and residents. We live by our motto “Let our family help look after yours”.
