The ultimate in assisted living
To provide quality care for the benefit of the aged people in our community
Echuca Community for the Aged (ECA) provides hostel care (low care with ageing in place) and independent living for elderly members of the Echuca community and broader Campaspe and Murray Shires, allowing them to continue leading dignified and independent lives close to their families and friends.
Echuca is situated on the majestic Murray, 230 kms north of Melbourne. A great place to enjoy the past, the present and the future.
Founded in 1878 as the Echuca Benevolent Society in the river boat town of Echuca in Victoria, the ECA is a community based not for profit organisation and takes a genuine local approach to its provision of services. It is owned by the community of Echuca, run by an effective volunteer Board of Management, and fuelled by the tireless efforts of its local volunteers and staff.
The ECA has fully accredited facilities, which comply with all outcomes set by the Aged Care Standards Agency.
In its 129th year, the ECA celebrates the local legacy that it has built and proudly acknowledges its growth into the local leader in aged care that it is today. It also looks towards the future, and the challenges that it will need to meet to sustain the high level of quality care that it provides to residents, for many years to come.
