You need to keep on top of what happens with your loved one EVERY DAY because staff change-over is extremely high and there is a lack of consistency around communication. In fact, communication is a huge issue. Their processes are ineffective and mistakes are common. If you don't ask questions or check up on the well-being of your loved one, they let things go and don't seem to care. I would not recommend this facility even though it looks very nice and modern. After all, it's the care that counts.

This centre always looks clean, warm and inviting. There are lots of activities for the residents. The meals always look inviting. I have always found staff to be helpful and friendly. My mother is in the memory support unit and I think the staff are very good considering how difficult it must be sometimes

My Dad has lived at Estia Golden Grove SA for two years. The home is exemplary - beautiful environment like a luxury hotel, all large private rooms with ensuite, gardens, excellent meals, friendly staff, quality of care couldn't be better and the very friendly lifestyle program is just great, filled with events and activities which residents can choose from. Anyone in SA looking for quality care can consider this home with complete confidence.

My mother was a resident for 3 years. Lovely environment but not enough staff to care for residents. The staff there are hardworking and pleasant to deal with. Very expensive as is an extra service facility.

Great environment but was better as Viceroy. Since Estia took over it went down hill a little.

My 100 year old mother has been in care for 18 months and we are very happy with her care. She went there from the family home that they built so it was a huge decision

All staff, except Administration, were lovely. The facility has changed hands recently and there is now a $20 extra per day charge on top of funding.

I have both my parents in the same facility, my mother is physically disabled and on oxygen, my father has Alzheimer's. Prior to going into care they each had home care packages giving them a carer visiting to help as needed 2-3 times a day. My parents were reluctant to consider themselves disabled and treated the carers (who were fantastic) as visitors and still asking a lot of help from me. I lived an hour away and worked full time. When I said I could no longer provide my assistance, often 2-3 times a week, they gradually admitted they needed full time care. Finding a good quality facility, with 2 vacancies, a secure dementia ward for later down the track and also with the condition my parents wished to sleep in the same room was hard! But I did find one. They bent over backwards to accomodate my parents, even pushing their beds together to look like a double bed! 2 years later they are very settled, mum plays games all day with her friends and on her iPad, dad has been given his own veggie/garden patch and "advises and helps" the gardener when he visits. The go on outings and dad goes to the gym. It was a struggle for them at first and a great emotional struggle on me, but the excellent staff have helped a lot along the way.

While it is a beautiful, clean home where the staff are friendly and helpful, there is just not enough staff for the number of clients. Communication seems to be another area lacking, eg messages not passed on, family not informed of falls. Poor quality food seems to be the biggest issue for clients. Meals are tastless, rubbery etc (according to clients) To a generation of people who have little else to look forward to in life a meal better suited to their tastes is not too much to ask. This is one of the more expensive homes that has the feel and look of a four star hotel and while it does tick all the boxes and its a lot better than some of the others I have seen, there is also alot of room for improvement considering the cost per day.
