Samarinda Ashburton Aged Services (SAAS) is a not-for-profit organisation at the forefront of the Aged Care industry. With a reputation for quality staffing, services and innovation, SAAS provides integrated residential, community care and social support programs to the local Ashburton and Boroondara community.

Residential care programs include permanent and respite accommodation at Samarinda Lodge. 

Community care programs include:

SAAS also includes ‘The Ashy’ Local Community Op Shop which raises substantial funds for several services in the community and provides low cost household goods and clothing.

As an organisation, SAAS continues to excel in improving and tailoring care and support to meet the individual needs of its service users. We respect the choices of those in our care while delivering the highest quality services to meet best practice guidelines. Our organisation has consistently performed well against the Department of Health and Ageing Accreditation Standards.

A proven leader, SAAS continues to attract the interest of other Aged Care providers looking to implement innovative programs such as our advanced information technology and communication systems. We are recognised for our ability to adopt and implement complex projects to provide a responsive and enjoyable environment for our service users.
