I visited my Aunt regularly and shared meals on many occassions. Very nice rooms, atmosphere and staff. She took a few weeks to settle but once she settled in she was happy. Last few days of her life was spent in high care and once again kindness and caring prevailed. She was partially blind but loved the cooking classes.

mum has been in special needs with advanced dementia for 4 years and dad was only there for a short time before recently passing away. The staff are incredibly caring and kind. They are so beautiful with mum and cared for dad so respectfully. I spent the last 10 days camping in dads room before he passed away and I felt supported and cared for. From the nurses to the picas, the environmental staff and Irene at reception, everyone is wonderful and I am so grateful for their care of my parents

This facility gives you a country home feel with its painted brick wall design and a mixture of classic and modern furnitures around. It is quite an old building that needs a little bit of renovation and colour to make it a vibrant environment to live in. It has a secure double front sliding doors that is visible to the reception staff of people coming in and out of the facility. Although it is an old building, the skylight ceilings make the hallways bright and clear. Each residents has generously proportioned single rooms with private ensuite. Generously proportioned because for me it quite a small room. For people who are claustrophobic, I don't think this is a suitable facility for you. It feels like living in a shoe box. Nothing fancy about the room either but you can redecorate it to whatever style you want. The dining area and lounge area are huge. It is a mixture of high and low care residents. It might have some good and bad points with this but for people who likes cosy dining, this feels like dining in a food court. One good thing about this facility is their pet therapy. They have their own guinea pig and rabbits for residents who loves pets. They also have a decent sized backyard and garden where residents can enjoy a bbq meal on sunny days.
