My mother spent several weeks in respite care in Estia Prahran. Our experience with them was awful: - One cold, wet October morning the staff left her in her nightie and nothing else on the chair right beside the open balcony door. They had opened the door because she had soiled herself and the room smelled. They left her sitting there and she was freezing cold when we came in. Three days later she developed bronchitis. - Aged care institutions are managed so that the institution can run smoothly (like a clock, with staff rosters, etc), not for the care of the residents. Mum had dementia and she didn't want to get out of bed early when the staff wanted her to, so she resisted. As the result they wanted to medicate her so they could manage her. - They brought breakfast to her, but didn't pour the hot tea (dangerous to leave it to her to do), or take the top off the egg, butter the toast or anything. She usually didn't do those things herself, so the tray was taken away uneaten unless one of us got there at breakfast time to help her. - We often heard residents' bells going for up to half an hour or longer with no response from staff. Every evening at 6.00pm the floor she was on was completely empty as all the staff were outside in the staff room having their breaks. We sometimes walked from room to room looking for someone, but no one there. - They sent mum home with someone else's medications in amongst hers. How many mistakes did they make that we didn't know about? We couldn't possibly recommend this place as providing good care. It just doesn't.

My mother was admitted for respite care at Estia Health Prahran on 1 April 2017. She had dementia and was prone to wandering. She was provided a room with a balcony on the first floor. The balcony door was not locked. On the morning of 3 April she tried to escape by climbing over the balcony and fell 5 metres to the concrete courtyard below. She died 5 days later from the trauma she suffered.

Three falls in one weeks for my mother.....would question there care. A group of people sitting and watching a blank tv....very stimulating. A mirror, table with flowers at the entrance have been replaced with a large coffee machine... Just what everyone has at the entrance to their home?
