The Aboriginal Community Elders Services (ACES) was established due to the tireless work of the late Aunty Iris Lovett Gardiner and other elders both past and present. They were concerned that elders were dying in mainstream nursing homes without any Aboriginal cultural practices being observed.
The Aboriginal Community Elders Services Inc (ACES) is a Not-For-Profit Aboriginal community controlled organization. ACES have two co-located residential aged care facilities – the Nursing Home and the Hostel. The other aged care programs are the Koori Community aged Care Packages (KCACP) Program and the Out of Home and Community Care Planned Activity Group (PAG). Aboriginal values and respect for Elders are the guiding principles.
