Very happy with the care and attention given to my members of family who have progressed from low care to high care over a number of years since coming into the establishment

The Tarralla Nursing Home in Croydon Victoria, is a lovely home, however in the last few months their lifestyle program has declined drastically in quality. The food is average and the chef does not seem to take on board any criticism! Staff are pleasant and do their duties quite well, but there could be some improvement. In my opinion the standard they produce when being accredited should be the standard at all times.

My mum was well cared for here re; her daily care, her psychological needs and particularly her health care at the end of her life. She was made as happy as was possible. A good cheerful staff provided decent food, plenty of interesting activities and a reasonable level of individual care.

Tarralla run by Blue Cross. Couldn't speak more highly of them for the care and good time they gave my dad while he was alive. Sadly he was in his 91 year and passed away last year. Dad loved the meals and looked forward to going to restaurant type meals. The staff were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. It was really like being on a cruise ship when we went to visit. Activities aplenty. Tarralla is in Croydon, Victoria. Jenny O'Meara
