My mum has regular respites at MacQuarie Lodge. We are fond of The Salvos and find the place itself and the staff to be of good quality. Food is pretty ordinary and activities could be more sociable and stimulating.

Dad was at Macquarie Lodge for 9 weeks respite in 2014. It was by far the best place he has stayed at. He was 93 then and has dementia. The staff were particularly caring, warm and friendly and they followed my instructions perfectly.

Also the overcharging we had to endure and the amount of time to get the money back. Over $12,000 that is a overcharge big time. When there was a outing my Aunty was never allowed to go because to difficult, well don't we pay these establishment extra to take them out. No only if you can walk , eat etc on your own , well why not stay home.

The care facility which my Aunty was in had only been built for 2 years. So the room she had was beautiful. But the care given was appalling, every day I visited was requested to undress her for bedtime, I would shower her clean her teeth, feed her. Yet was paying $3200.00 per month. The food started of ok then change of chef , bacon

My father who was 92 at the time and has dementia spent 9 weeks at this facility while I was overseas. So far it's the best one he has stayed at. He loved it and they loved him. I only wish they had more activities for the guests than just watching TV and eating.
