Residential Aged Care in SA was this year added to the Australian Trusted Brands Survey. The Salvation Army was named the most trusted brand in this category for SA, followed by AnglicareSA.
Anglicare Australia was named nationally as the most trusted brand for aged care services.
AnglicareSA has more than 160 years of experience in helping South Australians through services including residential aged care, in-home care, and independent living services.
Chief executive Grant Reubenicht said the organisation employed more than 900 aged care staff, supported by volunteers, who together serve more than 2000 people.
"This recognition is well deserved, especially during the challenging environment of the past couple of years, where building and maintaining solid, trusted connections with the people we serve and our frontline aged care employees has been critically important," he said.
"We thank all our aged care employees and volunteers who work tirelessly to support our customers with dignity, respect and compassion. Congratulations again to our employees, and those who support them, for this significant achievement."
AnglicareSA operates six residential aged care homes caring for 566 residents in Brompton, Westbourne Park, Trott Park, Grange and two in Elizabeth.
Mr Spinks said prioritising the health and wellbeing of customers and employees has been at the heart of what the organisation has done for more than a century.
"This tradition of service to others with compassion and dignity is how AnglicareSA builds trust within and beyond our organisation," he said.
The survey is commissioned by Reader's Digest and has been running in Australia for 23 years. It is conducted by Catalyst Research, an independent market research company, and involved surveying more than 3000 Australians on brands they trust most.
Reader's Digest editor-in-chief Louise Waterson congratulated AnglicareSA.
"Anglicare SA has shown that even in the most challenging times, only the highest standards of care, respect and concern will do when delivering aged care services to the elderly," she said.
"Trust is being able to uphold consistency and excellence in even the toughest of times."
