About Kalyra

About Kalyra

The James Brown Memorial Trust has been here for 125 years and over that time we have grown and changed.

We now offer residential aged care at Belair, McLaren Vale and Woodcroft and retirement living at Belair, Bellevue Heights, McLaren Vale and  Woodside.

Reflecting our historical diversity, accommodation is also offered through five locations across Adelaide in our James and Jessie Brown Cottages, designed for simple, sustainable low-cost living, enabling people to step out of risk of homelessness, supported by agencies, into a more secure future.

We also provide services offering Help at Home for those in their own home or in independent living of any kind right across the Adelaide Hills, southern suburbs, Fleurieu, Murray Bridge and Victor Harbor.
