Review Carinity Aged Care Brookfield
2 reviews sorted by Date Rating Type
Bazzman Jan 09, 2020

We have mixed feelings about Carinity. Our experience with their head office and representatives was disappointing, but we have been impressed with the staff who care for our family member. Head office? Initially they were very friendly. We were using respite but said we were pursuing a permanent placement. Even though we had six weeks of respite in stock, staff kept saying the respite bed was for a limited time only and we would need to sign up quickly. A chat with dementia support services said this is a common tactic to force families into signing up quickly as there is often more money to be made with permanent placement, and a more reliable revenue stream. We organised a face-to-face meeting to begin the process and the Carinity respresentative was abrupt to the point of rudeness, even saying she couldn't see why we had to come into the office when a phone call was all that was needed. Generally it often took a long time to get replies, we were often passed from person to person, and staff appeared to be overworked and rushed in any dealings with us. On the other hand, we have been impressed with the actual staff who work with our family member. It is encouraging to see the nurses, support workers, and diversional therapist are passionate about their job. Overall, our concern is that when the head office of an organisation appears to be more motivated by money than caring, this could possibly influence the level of care eventually. Our experience certainly did not sit comfortably with Carinity's byline "we're here for you". We highly recommend ringing one of the dementia hotlines if you experience problems or undue pressure with any aged care organisations, we received very useful objective advice.

This older style building suited mum where she felt more relaxed than in a modern new building
