Personal Guidance in Aged Care is owned and operated by Stephen Stockwell. Prior to assuming stewardship mid-2016, for many years Stephen was consulting together with his mother Bernadette.
Bernadette worked extensively in the industry over ten years before establishing the placement consultancy in 2001. She was among the first to meet the emerging needs of Adelaide families in navigating an increasingly complex residential care system. A reputation for credibility, integrity, and quality tailored service steadily developed and is now widely acknowledged across South Australia, interstate, and overseas. Bernadette remains close to the service while having stepped away from day-to-day operations late 2016.
Stephen has long shared his mother's proactive engagement in community services, having come to aged care from five years as an accomplished disability support worker. The driving principles remain the same: advocating always for the best interests and dignity of the person. To that end, Stephen continues to uphold Bernadette's legacy of basing all recommendations and referrals on standards of care from reputable, accredited providers.
