Mum resided here mum had dementia came in walking with a frame. Had a fall no follow up. She never waked since. Mum had thrush both vaginal and oral nursing staff hadn't seen such a bad case I a very long time. Mum had a UTI, kidney infection, and septic. Nursing left her too late. I initiated the dr to get her to hospital. Mum was on opioids and end one. Family were not notified. Mum had two pressure sores. We moved her out of there. Put a complaint to the aged care commission They confirmed that there were flaws and neglect in her care. Mum died a month later in the 2nd nursing home. I am crushed and the feeling of guilt overwhelms me at times. Especially writing this.

The nursing staff are friendly and approachable. The care staff go out of their way to provide individualised care to each and every resident. The Kitchen team do an outstanding job of creating delicious treats for the residents for example the shortbreads melt in your mouth. The cleaning staff are all new since cleaning is in house. The cleaning staff go our of their way to ensure the facility is spick and span and smells great.

My grandfather was a resident of Elm aged Living he enjoyed the life he lived there. He often mentioned that he enjoyed the food and activities that were offered to him. The care given when he was unwell was second to none. Overall Elm aged living is a place I would recommend

Taking out the cost factor, there is never enough staff to tend to all the residents, leaving some waiting at times when you are unable to wait. The quality of food should be a higher standard (you are what you eat).

Food quality is appalling. They are passed on menus which have nothing to do with what is actually fed to residents. Good caring staff are got rid of. Too many agency staff, who mess up medication.

Elm Aged Living

Thank you for your review of Elm Mount Martha Valley. I would first like to say that I am sorry we haven’t met your expectations in relation to the services provided to your loved one, especially in relation to the food. We certainly encourage feedback from everyone and recommend discussing any future issues with the facility manager so they can be addressed as soon as possible. In relation to the use of agency staff, it is sometimes necessary to use them, particularly at times of high sick leave and where our own casual staff are not available. We try and keep this to a minimum as we understand the impact this has on quality of care. The manager is actively recruiting for new staff. Regards Ingrid Williams Managing Director
