Both my mother and my mother in law were at Karana (for 7 years and 9 months respectively) and we were so happy they were there.

Mum is very lonely as the staff do not have time to stop and chat. Sometimes they take too long to take mum to the toilet and therefore she has accidents. It seems to be understaffed.

Karana have been exceptional in looking after my 90 yr old father-in-law. They could not have done more.

My mother and my mother in law were in care at Karana in Kew, Victoria, some years ago, and my husband and I could not speak more highly of the wonderful care they received. Staff were wonderful, the food to our parents's liking, including fresh baked goodies and roast dinners, and we always felt welcome when we visited. My mother was there for seven years, my mother in law only a few months, and we were very grateful they were both looked after so beautifully.
