Our Story

Samkay Health has been formed from the ideals and principles of its founders, Sam and Kay. A 2 person team, Sam and Kay entered the Aged Care industry in 1988 when Kay saw an opportunity to improve on the care provided to our elderly.

Sam and Kay started at Eaglemont Private Nursing Home, a 28 bed home. Even as a new provider, Kay was always commended for the clinical care provided to the residents. Sam and Kay took on aged care as a child which needed to be nurtured to grow and develop. In 13 years, they relocated to the present Grace Villa residence, based in Greensborough. This was later refurbished into purpose built residence for 91 residents.

Being exposed to the aged care industry and the high standards of care provided by Sam and Kay, the children took on responsibilities in various roles in the organisation i.e. care, operations, quality assurance and information technology systems. Led by example, they are taking on the duty of ensuring that Samkay Health continues to strive to provide a premium care and lifestyle experience for the elderly in a place they can call home.
