Review Nazareth Care Camberwell

Janette C Feb 08, 2020

My parents were well looked after at Nazareth house.My mother had Parkinson's and she was always treated with respect and kindness, upholding her dignity. The professional care of the staff supported her to recover from some bouts of illness until palliative care was required.She died peacefully. My mother and father gained a sense of belong and the staff showed such empathy making their time there comfortable. The family were also made to feel very welcome and we felt we could gather as a family with our parents regularly. When my father became ill, the palliative care was comforting, emphatic and professional which gave the family confidence during this difficult time.

Nazareth care, St Michaels has been a Godsend for both my parents. They were lovingly cared for by staff who were genuinely caring and loving and went through great lengths to provide them the care they required. My mother loved the garden and the sunshine. Staff would make time to take her out for her to enjoy the garden. The Sisters of Nazareth also made the place special with their presence, overseeing things and working hand in hand with management. For me visiting my parents was simply like visiting them at their home. The ambience of the place always made me feel God’s presence. I always felt at ease, a sense of peace as I entered the place. I loved taking my parents to the church on the premise, sitting outside in the gorgeous gardens to enjoy the sun. My parents loved this and this gave them much happiness. It is a wonderful place for a loved one to spend their remaining life in God’s presence. I thank each and every one of the wonderful staff, management and Sisters of Nazareth for the truly loving care and respect they gave my parents. This will stay with me forever.

The Committee / board of Nazareth Care need to send a 'mystery shopper' in to see for themselves what is going on. Or more to the point - what is not being done for the health of elderly

This place has been a nightmare to my mother. They have been sedating my mother incessantly from her day of admission. They are hostile to any attempt by family to cease sedation; with doctors on their books who will chart every sedating medicine under the sun. They use various guises to justify their sedation such as dodgy pain scales and will mock your attempt to raise the issue. In addition to antipsychotics they put my elderly mother on 4g Panadol daily and now she has a destroyed liver. They have taken my beautiful mother who at the time of entry less than 8 mo ago was picture of health into a hollow shell at death's door. I thought their ethos would be modelled on the values of Victoire Larmenier, but all I found was a facility that makes a mockery of dignified care.

disappointed as pell May 09, 2018

Important information is not passed on from shift to shift. Sometimes the very next shift receives a new instruction, but then every shift after that misses out. There is no system to ensure that PCAs know what a resident 'needs' (not just 'wants', but 'needs'). Medication is organised but even then, only some of the staff stay with the resident until they swallow every pill. No one checks that staff are completing their tasks and so there are groups of lazy, slack, uncaring staff who cover up for each other. Others are too scared to talk about any new ideas or improvements. The 'supervisors' have got the nuns fooled with their 'charm'. The sooner unannounced THOROUGH visits from the authorities are the norm the better for the safety of helpless residents. The building is attractive, with plenty of homely spaces for residents and families and very clean and well kept. But the low score is given to reflect the problems of an older building - it was built prior to modern standards, so the bathrooms are too small for people with walking frames, in wheelchairs or using harnesses etc

Feedback given to leaders or managers is not handled confidentially. It is treated like a complaint against an employee. Then the employee / carer is reprimanded and the resident and family are made to feel bad for saying anything. An example of the lack of supervision from management - Hot drinks are served to infirm residents lying flat in bed in cups that are too hard to hold. Nurse call buttons are out of reach or fall on the floor and can be on the floor all day.
