The staff were very friendly but the building was very tired. It was ok for my dad but I wouldn't have been happy there. Meals were adequate. We joined dad for Christmas lunch which was very un-Christmassy. I believe there are better places

Benetas Colton Close is a modern facility, with large bright rooms with floor to ceiling windows. Residents are well fed with warm meals three times a day, well cared for and have clean facilities.

My mum has been in colton close for a number of years. I find the nursing staff very compassionate and caring. Their nurses and managers are great and always friendly. My mum is very happy and I would recommend.

My mother hated being there. She was not there that long when she had a very bad fall and was hospitalised but while she was not there over 1 month or so you still have to make full payment to keep her spot otherewise you have to start the whole process to get them back in again and another time l once waited 20 minutes after pressing the buzzer for my mother she needed to use the toilet and i went looking for someone and was told she has to wait they dont have enough staff. I dont so much blame the staff as some of them are nice, but they should have more staff as it is not cheap to have a family member in an age care. I understand that we have an ageing generation and l would never want to be in one.

My mother was in Goonawarra age care only for a short period while in late stage lung and brain cancer and my father in law has been in care for a few years and still in age care at Colton close glenroy. I try and visit once a week and unfortunaly have notice that the cleaning of the facility has dropped a little the nursing staff are still great and care for my father in law very well. He him self is alway very clean and cared for. The food look very good and he seem to like it. he has been there a few years now and the care does not seem to have dropped in that time. The communication the staff have with my sister in law about his care is very good.
