Review Eva Tilley Memorial Home

Domenico2959 Jul 05, 2019

My father was a resident in Eva Tilley for many years. His health and mobility improved during his residency. I was very happy with both the staff and the level of care. Dad made friends and participated in activities to a level that surprised me! The care and support for Dad and our whole family as his life drew to a close at 97 remains much appreciated.

I am an agency nurse and worked in a few aged care facilities all around Melbourne. I admire Eva Tilley because of the helpfulness and friendliness of most of their staff. They are nice to their residents and cheerful as well. There is a good ambience to the place.
