Called ‘Lealholme’ which means ‘haven of welcome’, the care home was established in 1949 by the Port Pirie Central Methodist Mission. In 1995 Lealholme became part of the Helping Hand organisation – which delivers high quality aged care services in regional South Australia and metropolitan Adelaide. In November 2016, a $6m extension to Lealholme was officially opened.
Lealholme is described by a resident’s family as: ‘First class … set in an environment that brings nature to your doorstep for all residents to experience and enjoy.’
