My father receives wonderful care at Good Shepherd. The staff are amazing; from the front office staff, to the grounds, maintainence and kitchen staff to the fabulous nursing and diversionary therapy staff. My father enjoys the food and the variety of activities on offer. He speaks very highly of the staff and I feel that his needs and interests are acknowledged. If you require permanent care for a loved one, I certainly recommending visiting Good Shepherd Lodge Mackay.
