Review BlueCross Darnlee

Darnlee in Toorak, Victoria has exceptional staff who go above what is expected of them. Staff member Penny who works at the front desk, is the most genuine, caring and helpful person you could meet. Penny gave us our initial Inspection of Darnlee, and she was the one who convinced us that Darnlee was the right fit for our mum. They have a Life Style Team, who are not nurses, but who spend a lot of time with the residents doing craft, exercises and providing vital mental/physical stimulation. The Life Style Team organise fun Theme days which my mum loves. They also take them on bus outings. The catering staff also are to be commended for knowing their residents particular likes and dislikes, and creating healthy meals. The nursing staff , greet my mum by name and with a smile. We could not be happier with the care given by all the Team at BlueCross Darnlee Thank you :)

My mum is very blessed to be living in Darnlee, Toorak. The staff here, including Lifestyle staff, Reception, Kitchen staff and nurses are wonderful. My mum is treated with dignity and kindness. Mum has activities everyday and really loves it here. At the moment the building is getting new carpet and being renovated, which will really be wonderful. A BIG THANK YOU to all the wonderful staff at Darnlee from our family ....you are all angels !

My father was a high care resident at Darnlee and I feel it was probably one of the best facilities in Melbourne
