Has improved. But still struggle with nursing staff. There is not enough staff in general.

My father was initially a respite patient at OVRC and later became a permanent resident in the Dementia Ward. During his time there, he was very well cared for, was involved in a variety of lifestyle programs, his medications were streamlined and overall, his care was fantastic. When his status changed to palliative, the care, consideration and empathy shown to him and our family was a comfort. I will always speak highly of the dignity he was given at all stages of his care.

The building has been recently renovated and my father had a single room with private ensuite. The staff were very caring and attentive to his changing needs. Whilst my Dad was at home, he refused showers and personal grooming, it was a particular worry of mine and within a week of his arrival at Onkaparinga Valley Residential Care they had trimmed his nails, given him a hair cut and given him a fabulous make over, he looked wonderful! The management team assisted me with administrative tasks and I was so happy with his care. Dad recently passed away and the support that the staff provided him at his end of life and to the family during this very difficult time was a godsend.

My mother was addmited t low care then transfered t high care she had slight demensure still new who i was . My mother had a pressure sore. That ended up as a bed sore. She was not treated properly and it turned to gangreane. Her skin was dying fless. Everyone would not tend to her because of the smell. When she wanted to go to the tiolet they would always leave her to last that was degrading for my mother.She ended up in bed and they were suppose to turn her every two hours. Did not always happen I asked the doctor to have a look the smell was so bad he declined. The insident at the nursing home has been reported . It was to late for my wonderful mother but hopefully it will benifit athers in the home.

They have extended. And the treatment of the residents that live there is sad.Cold food, Not getting showered everyday, cleaning allowed 3 days a week, beds not being made etc. There is a vibe which includes the relationship between the owner and the staff and residents. Happening every week. Lack of staff in every department. I really of they can improve.
