The Residency

For more than 15 years, James Barker House, a Footscray aged care program, has met the needs of the older person. James Barker House is run by The Salvation Army, a Christian organisation, specialises in meeting the needs of marginalised and homeless persons, and people who are at risk of becoming homeless. We have created specialised procedures that cater for those persons whose lifestyle is adversely impacted by alcohol and tobacco usage. The house’s eight wings and four nursing stations enhance these programs, upholding the dignity of the individual.

Room & Fees

These rooms are located in the four wings on the first floor of James Barker House. The first floor (category two) also has 60 beds across four wings, E, F, G & H. Residents on the first floor have varying care needs and degrees of dependence, ranging from minimal support with personal care to those who are fully dependent, requiring full personal and nursing care.
