San carlo has made my dads life so much better. It just suits him. The Italian feel about it makes it just homely. He loves the food and cheery vibe. Residents are nice too

Great care but staff are very rushed.

More staff required to eliminate a sense of hurry as the elderly do not respond well to this. After my relative had a fall in the facility, I had to insist on an xray and medical attention, as it was not considered necessary by the staff.

My mother has had dementia for 13 years and she has been looked after brilliantly at San Carlo!

Have had a few lows and highs . Right choice of staff makes a big difference in the quality of care. Usually stems from the top. Good thing tne DON in my mum's Aged Care listens and takes action. Also has a very experienced Clinical Nurse. I believe the fact my mum survived 13yrs and some of the residents survive approx 6-8yrs speaks for itself.

My mother has been a resident at San Carlo for over 8 years and during this time she has been placed in the most appropriate area so that her needs were met at each phase of her deterioration. We have been blessed to find this home.
