About us

Living a life full of meaning, relevance and happiness.

For over 25 years Rembrandt Living has offered high quality, down-to-earth Home Care, Residential Care (Rembrandt Court) and Respite Services for people of all backgrounds. Although we are of Dutch origin, our genuinely home-grown environment has been sought out and enjoyed by many different cultures. We are proudly a small, not-for-profit provider with staff that are truly dedicated to the wellbeing of our residents and clients.

The Rembrandt Difference

‘Gezellig’ aptly describes the Rembrandt difference, which comes directly from our Dutch roots and values.

It may be hard to explain and even harder to say but is easy to understand the moment you walk through our doors. At Rembrandt you can sense, see, feel and experience it in everything we do.

Leading Aged Services Australia

Rembrandt Living is a proud member of Aged & Community Care Providers Association (ACCPA), and of Leading Aged Services Australia (LASA), a national association providing advice, services and support for aged service providers, giving a strong and influential voice on issues of national importance. We also have staff certified in the “Positive Approach to Care”, helping our staff to shine a positive light on dementia.

To provide a unique Dutch style of service that enables people to live their best possible lives as they age.

Our Purpose

Our History

Rembrandt Living exists today largely due to the foresight and determination of one woman, Tinie Nieuwenhoven.

In the 1980’s Tinie searched but struggled to find culturally appropriate aged care services in South Australia. What Tinie soon realised was that so many people had found themselves in this difficult situation following the mass European immigration after World War II. Addressing this dilemma became Tinie’s motivating force.

Working alongside a willing group of helpers, Tinie set about establishing a service that would allow people to live together in a community especially designed to support their physical and cultural needs.

Our Mission

Performance Record

Accreditation is a key component of the aged care regulatory environment established by the Aged Care Act 1997.

Accreditation seeks to assess the quality and care of services delivered by approved providers against the Quality Standards and contributes to improved safety, quality and continuous improvement of services.

We have an unblemished record in relation to retaining our Accreditation Status with the Australian Government Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission across both our residential and home care services.

A new Star Rating System was introduced in December 2022 for residential care. This is based on 4 categories, these categories and their weightings are:

  • Residents’ Experience – weighting 33%
  • Service Compliance with Accreditation – weighting 30%
  • Care Minutes – weighting 22%
  • Quality Indicator Program

We are pleased to advise that our residential services currently have a 4 star rating.
