Review RSL Care Farnorha Retirement Community

I Couldn't possib;y give anyone full 5 stars as I do not believe in perfection but Farnohra comes close. I have two friends there now and both are content, tho both were adamant that they did not want to go into care. I have been visiting for two years. My first friend is not sociable and keeps to her room only leaves for meals or exercise. Yet she tells me "they are very good to you here". Staff are always dropping by to care for her. My latest friend is in high care and jumped on a bus for an afternoon out on her first day. Something I am sure she has not done for years. I feel like I am visiting them in their own home. The staff are always loving and congenial it must be a great place for them to work at. The buildings are always maintained beautifully full of lovely things to look at and easy to wander around in. If I had to be in care I wish that it could be at Farnorha.

I am very concerned that both residents and staff treat the facility as a hospital rather than a home. It seems easier for staff if the residents are in their room for the majority of their time. This is not good for socialisation or for mental health.

Ive visited a friend in light care for the past 2 and 1/2 years and this week I have helped another dear friend settle in to high care in this establishment. I've found the staff always very cheery and helpful to their clients they come immediately when needed yet are unobtrusive or as friendly as I wish to me as a visitor. Tis like visiting them in their own homes. The buildings are very well maintained and I have even wondered how they do this with constant high tenancy. There are many interesting artworks apon the walls and top cleanliness. the general activities exercise craftwork and bussed outings seem to be very stimulating. I am told by my friend the food is very good and more than enough. I only have not given 5 stars as I'm critical enough to feel nowhere can be perfect but I am not hearing any complaints.
