About Estia Health Ltd

Estia Health Ltd (EHE) is one of Australia’s largest residential aged care providers. The company delivers care to more than 8,000 older Australians each year from its homes which are located along the eastern seaboard of Australia and South Australia.

Estia Health was established in 2014 through the merger of 3 residential aged care businesses. Despite the Estia Health share price quickly rising after listing on the ASX that very year, Estia Health shares did not enjoy such success in the latter half of the decade. Nonetheless, as an aged care provider, the company is supported by ageing population tailwinds.
