Inappropriate staffing and non professional behaviour makes it difficult for the resident's to get proper care.

The aged care facility has passed accreditation without a hitch. it is well-maintained and has well trained staff. The care given to my family member is relevant to her needs and she has come to regard the facility as her home.
