ACH Group, a South Australian not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider is undertaking significant construction projects to enhance the health and well-being of older South Australians.

They are building a $5 million advanced health and wellbeing hub at Rostrevor and a new $1.6 million retirement living village at Hope Valley.

The Health Studio at Rostrevor will offer various allied health services and group exercise classes to promote positive ageing. It will also accommodate office spaces for ACH Group’s health and community staff.

Barbara and Michael Hill, who attend ACH Group’s leased Health Studio at Gilles Plains, said they were “very excited” about the Rostrevor health and wellbeing hub opening. The Felixstow couple, who have been married for 57 years, started at the studio nine years ago after Michael had “very serious” surgery and developed septicaemia.

“We mix with people our own age. We just enjoy the company and it gets us out the house. Once you’ve been once or twice you really get into it.”

The Hope Valley retirement village aims to address the increasing demand for quality housing options for older individuals in the local community, providing independent living with opportunities for engagement and social connections.

Construction is expected to be completed by October 2024 for the Health Studio and early 2025 for the Hope Valley retirement village, further expanding ACH Group’s retirement living community to enhance the lives of over 680 residents across Metropolitan Adelaide and the Fleurieu.
