Our Story

The Dale cottages story is one rich in values of care, equity, dignity, innovation, participation, volunteerism and hard work. It is no surprise therefore that these values continue to underpin our work since 1959.

In 1956 the community of Armadale and Kelmscott recognised the need to provide accommodation for elderly residents. From the first public meeting it was crystal clear that the community of Armadale and Kelmscott would make this project happen and to this day we hold fast to the principal that Dale Cottages is a community organisation.

In October 1959 the first duplex opened in John Street Armadale. Since then our organisation has grown in its mission to care for our community and we currently provide:

  • 180 Independant Living Units
  • Residential A​​​​​ged Care Facility
  • Home Care Packages
  • Social and Recreational Activities
  • Community Catering Services
  • Wellness and Information Centre
  • Greendale Centre Management

We continue to be an independent organisation guided by a Board made up of community representatives. The result has been the continuous provision of accommodation and an increasing recognition that care and choice are equal and essential elements in service delivery.

Our Organisational Values are:

  • Care
  • Dignity
  • Equality
  • Self-fulfilment
  • Independence
  • Participation
  • Safety
  • Accountability
  • Financial Viability

These values underpin our organisation’s policies, objectives, procedures and strategies. They provide an anchor and a reference point for all things that happen at Dale Cottages.

Our Mission

Giving our community, services, care and accommodation that foster equity, independance and wellness.
