Team winner

Rembrandt Living is an exceptional home in Adelaide’s inner southern suburbs.

Its décor and furniture are designed specifically to be reminiscent of a resident’s home in the community. Halls are filled with trinkets, photos, memorabilia from days gone by and of course tributes to residents’ Dutch heritage.

It is proudly small – with only 87 rooms allowing operators to take the time to treat each person as an individual.

Rembrandt Living’s team of nurses and carers are highly trained and are given the time needed to provide truly individual tailored care. An onsite GP also makes for the best of quality care.

Rembrandt’s allied health team focuses on wellbeing, enablement and rehabilitation, with residents relishing access to elder-friendly, effective and fun allied health services.
