Review Brightwater South Lake

My mother experiences constant mood changes due to her bipolar disorder/manic depression, with this in mind the staff, in particular her RN/Care manager, are great and to my knowledge monitor her consistently. The food is mum's constant gripe, particularity in summer. She is 65yo whereas most residents are 75+yo and her food needs are much different. E.g. She prefers less meant and more vegetables/salads/fresh produce. She doesn't seem to receive these enough so she expects me to source these for her. I do not understand how her $145/month doesn't include her specific food requests? More outings that are consistent throughout the year would be another advantage, as above, due to my mum being younger than most residents.

The comfortable homely facility goes a long way to creating a family atmosphere for the residents. Thus enabling them to settle down fairly quickly to their new environment. My mother was from a family of 10, living by herself made for a lonely existence. As he dementia progresses I'm sure she feels more secure with people around her, without being overwhelmed.

Brightwatewr Southlake is home to my father who unexpectedly required care when my mother became ill. The facility consists of 6 x 5 bedded houses each room with a private ensuite backing into a garden with a pergola in the middle. Each house has a lounge and kitchen for communal living. Each day and activity is held in a different house and residents are encourage to attend and meet each other. Staff bring their children in and residents can invite their grandchildren to join in activities with the elders. Staff are jolly, happy, respectful and welcoming. Pets are welcome to visit. It is a home away from home.
