Understaffing is always an issue as is security to residents once put in their rooms at night as no staff is around to check on high care residents who can't call for help.

No real complaints after what I've seen on tv but you must keep an eye on your medication bill in case you get cheated

Shortage of qualified staff is a big deal. The few there are run off their feet. The young careers really have no experience in looking after very old or very high care residents. They try their best but many residents go without eating as there is not enough time for the staff to take in feeding them slowly.

My mother has been at this 'aged care' for nearly 2 years and I have not had a problem.....considering the fact that mum does not speak English and has dementia this is just so positive.
