Elizabeth Downs Cottage (1976 - 1980s)

Cottage Home, Home and Methodist

Elizabeth Downs Cottage was opened by the Adelaide Central Methodist Mission at Elizabeth Downs in 1976. In the mid to late 1970s, as a response to the government's push to close large congregate care institutions and replace them with smaller group care, the Methodist Church closed Lentara and established a number of Cottage Homes in suburban areas. The cottages were able to provide more specialised care. The Elizabeth Downs Cottage appears to have closed in the mid 1980s.
