Information about SRS's in Victoria


A Supported Residential Service (SRS) is a private business that provides accommodation and care for residents, on an ongoing fee basis. There is usually no asset tested fees or accommodation bonds to be paid at an SRS. SRS’s are not Commonwealth funded and therefore not governed by the Aged Care Act of 1997. They must, however, be registered with the Victorian government and are monitored to ensure they provide certain standards of care and accommodation.

About Us

Supported Residential Services

A Supported Residential Service ( SRS ) is privately operated housing providing care and accommodation for people who need support in everyday life, for example, people who are frail or have a disability. An SRS does not receive Commonwealth funding but they must be registered with the Victorian Government and are monitored on a regular basis to ensure they provide acceptable standards of personal support and accommodation. SRS's charge the resident a weekly fee in return for accommodation, assistance with activities of daily living and care needs. The weekly fee charged by an SRS can vary from a "pension level" SRS to a SRS that will charge higher fees for a higher level of accommodation and lifestyle service. This website has been designed to give you a guide to the available SRS's in Victoria. This site is provided by the experienced team at Aged Care Connect - a residential care advisory and placement service with more than 12 years experience in placing persons in all forms of residential care.
