My Grandmother tearfully booked my Grandfather with dementia in here for respite. She was so appreciative of the staff and the way they handled the transition. He is a stubborn man and thinks that he doesn't need to be there but when we visited he has said the meals were really good, he liked that his room was easy to get to the bathroom and that the staff were lovely "top notch". I was impressed with the respect and love given to the residents. They are not treated as idiots or children, they are respected,and given a lot of love.

My mum, who has a progressive neurological disorder, is currently a resident of the Donald Coburn Centre. We have found the caring staff exceptional and feel they truly value and listen to our input and involve us in Mum's care. They have made a difficult transition much easier!

I found that there were wonderful staff that really care BUT also staff that were cruel and disrespectful. The older staff seemed compassionate and helpful and the young staff were abrupt and had no patience for the people in their care

My mother was in Donald Coburn ARV Castle Hill. Building super well designed well kept. Staff and care were generally terrific they cared about their clients. Good communication.Quality of food was good mum seemed to enjoy most meals . Lifestyle and well being was terrific. They offered so much more than mum could get at home by herself. She went to concerts ,on outings , church, watched movies they had craft days, the list goes on it was wonderful for my mum who could participate well. Mum loved it there could not talk about it too much she made good friends with staff and clients alike.For my mum it was a good experience unfortunately we lost her to pneumonia. Very sad sad day.
