BACKGROUND

A little bit about us

 

Founded in the early 1980s, Barunga Village was established like many other small-town nursing homes, as a modest extension to the local hospital. However, under the guidance of Chief Executive Officer, Merrilyn Hewett, Barunga Village is now regarded as one of the leaders in aged care in South Australia and a trailblazer in fields such as individualised accommodation and dementia care.

Community-owned and operated, Barunga Village is a regional success story and a major contributor to the health and economic development of Port Broughton and its farming hinterland.

As Chairperson of four years, I am proud to be one of many to represent this organisation. We are here to support people on their journey, whether that be for support services or employment opportunities, whilst continuously providing outstanding support to our consumers. On behalf of the Barunga Village team, I thank you for visiting.

Juan Elliott,
Chairperson
