I believe dad would have lived longer if he stayed in this facility. He often told me he wanted to go back to coster house and the staff there. I have organised with my family to live my end of life at coster. Highly recommended them.

the facilities are airy modern clean and has smaller areas as well as larger ones to suit the moods of the patients on a daily basis. They encouraged patients with gardening cooking massage bus trips and visits to the complimentary coffee shop. The staff were always courteous friendly caring and respectful. The patients were made to feel loved important respected and special. The families were informed comforted and respected and included at all times My mother spent over 1 year being cared for while suffering from Alzheimer's. She was encouraged to be as independent as possible with the staff quietly taking over the tasks when required.

My mother is in a aged care home, it has given us (her family) a great sense of relief to know that she has been getting the full time care that we would not have be able to give. My father now can enjoy her company now, instead of the burden of full time care. My only compliant would be that it is a male/female area, and at time my mother is subject to males removing clothing etc, and I feel at this stage of her life she should not have to deal with this.

Large facility staff are friendly and helpful, but just not enough to go around where needed. Went to visit my father in the afternoon and he they hadn't given back his teeth from the night before, so he been given both breakfast and lunch placed in front of him without them, very poor indeed. Labelled clothing often often being worn by other residence.
