Obviously Iv read your latest reviews. Mine is not as positive the care my mother received in this facility was appalling and nothing but neglect. I shouldn't say care as there was some days with none and every other limited. My family are still dismayed at her treatment lost count of times l visited and stepped around urine other residents in soiled adault nappy"s . Finding your mother unresponsive only to be told she's faking it. Then Having to ring a ambulance. My mother was in the peacock facility secure smelly and unsupervised...... Lift your game john curtain. Would NOT recommend this place Even for a animal

Very caring staff with comfortable accommodation. Rooms a little small in the older section of the centre but very clean and well kept. Food options for all preferences leaning more towards Australian type food. Probably could do with some more imaginative activities for the residents.

John Curtin is a wonderful caring home where my husband is who sadly got Alzheimer's at an early age. The highest cause of death with Alzheimer's is malnutrition and seeing what goes on in "all" homes (he has been in 3) and speaking to many people that belong to our Woodend Carers Group we all agree that their isn't enough staff to be able to help everyone eat all their meals, some meals get taken away even though the resident could have eaten more, the staff don't see that the resident just got side tracked or bored with eating, if they had someone helping them they would eat more. It's very sad to see people withering away when they could be helped. Also why do the men get the same size small meal that women get? I could write a book on dementia wards and I'm sure the many people I know with family members in dementia wards could write a chapter each of their own.

About John Curtin Aged Care

John Curtin is responsive community owned non-profit Home providing permanent and respite care to older citizens. It was developed through the vision of the people of Creswick and surrounding districts in recognising a need for residential aged care in the area. John Curtin is set in beautiful cottage gardens, in the delightful rural town of Creswick, only 20 minutes drive from the large regional city of Ballarat and the tourist centre of Daylesford. We offer residential and respite care that can be tailored to meet your, or your loved-one's, specific needs and aspirations. Our services actively support your right to lifestyle choices and independence.The John Curtin Memorial Hostel (now John Curtin Aged Care) was named after John Curtin, Prime Minister of Australia from 1941 to 1945, who was born in Creswick. The building's foundation stone was laid on the sixth of January 1985 which would have been John Curtin's 100th birthday.
