Review Churches of Christ Care Oak Towers Aged Care Service

The staff at this facility were overall very caring over the 10 years my parents were in aged care. The facility was clean however the day room, particularly in the dementia ward was grubby. Seats need replacing or steam cleaning more regularly. The food at this facility while abundant was very basic and flavourless.

My mother enjoyed her light and airy room and the fact that she could still be relatively independent by being able to do her own washing. She was not keen on the food so we often brought in food that we knew she would like or took her out for meals. Lifestyle staff provided excellent activities.

Every day my father was in their care I and my sister were worried about him. Countless times we went in to visit and he did not have his buzzer within reach,he couldn't walk or toilet himself. Heat wave in January of 2014 they had no air conditioning and did not tryto get it fixed on the weekend of 24th,25th and 26th, 27thJanuary. My father was in hospital the night of 28th and passed away January 31st. Was not impressed with Nurse in charge on his floor at all

The rooms in Hibiscous are very big, and they all have a lovely view of gardens. You can walk around outside in a loop. The staff are very caring.

It seemed to me that people with dementia are treated as non people, that their lives are finished and as they cannot understand it alright to not put any effort into how they are dressed, what food is given to them and their emotional needs.
