Our mission is to provide the best service, care and match
for you and your family

Greenslopes SRS leaves no stone unturned in our efforts to offer an outstanding supported residential service, and to do so with the highest level of care and compassion.

As a boutique facility, Greenslopes is able to offer a true home to our residents, with comfortable suites, expansive communal living areas – both indoor and outdoor – and award-winning kitchen facilities.

But it’s more than a home, it’s a community, where residents enjoy being mentally and physically active, sharing experiences, and shaping their own lifestyles, with support from qualified staff.

While the quality of our accommodation, amenities, activities and services is second-to-none it’s the superior level of attention to the individual needs of our residents that sets Greenslopes apart.

It’s what every resident and family member comments on and it’s what you’ll notice as soon as you walk in the door.

“I would like to express my appreciation to you and your staff for the care that was provided to Dad while he was in respite. I can honestly say I have not encountered any other respite centres that have shown the empathy and care that Greenslopes provided to dad. I was also impressed with the quality of meals and the high level of hygiene and cleanliness of the centre which my wife and mother-in-law also commented on. The feeling I got was that the staff treated the residents like they would treat their own family.”
