The only comment I would like to make is that the overall staffing always seems to be low on numbers, so I would like to see staff increases both nursing carers and cleaners.

Mostly good but when my mother had an URTI it took several days for her to be put on antibiotics. She was obviously not well, to the point of having hallucinations. Food was very average

My father has now been in the facility for nearly 8 months. While it is very hard to be in the position where full time residential care is the only answer, we couldn't be happier with our choice of a new home for Dad. The physical environment is great (well appointed, well maintained and very clean) but it is the staff that makes the place excellent. There are many activities available daily to keep boredom at bay, while Dad does not participate in many that is his choice; I know he is offered participation in all of them. The care staff is very friendly and kind to him, and to us. He sometimes complains of the food... but I have had meals he has criticized and come to the conclusion that Dad just doesn't have much of an appetite: he HAS gained six kilos since entering care, taking him up to a healthy weight, so it can't be THAT bad and certainly no worse than we were providing at home! It is nice to have him somewhere safe and pleasant (he thinks he is in a hotel!) - it is much more suited to him than the two places he had respite in prior to entering permanent care

It is hard to share your thought and experiences but I think the aged care facility My mother is in they all try to do their best because staff ratio per patient is probably not the best but I have found staff do try as hard as they can to do the right thing.I do think budget restraints make a big difference and it is very hard to give one on one help to the individual.It is just so sad to see your loved one in the facility because none of us want to see our loved one in these circumstances.I really think if more staff was available their would more interaction with the residents because they still need that human contact,just to let them no that some one is there for them.

They always ring us his family when he is unwell or needs to go to hospital and give us regular updates. Always friendly to family members who visit. regular family meeting with doctor and staff to review care plan.

Everything looks 5 star but when you scratch below the surface things are not always what they should be.
