My mother was very well cared for, always clean dressed well and fed. The majority of the staff were very caring and aware of her needs. Most went above and beyond.

my mother was in low care a fews years ago and the staff we so good with her daily needs , l'll also work in aged care and treat the resident with respect and dignity as if they are one of the family , that is how l'll wanted my mother to be treated , being in aged care is so much hard work and the resident's family now hard it is and thank us daily for caring for their loved ones, hope when my time cames l'll be treated the same way with respect.

The staff make the home. They treat you as family and look after the residents like they are their family.
