My Mum went into care very reluctantly and just wanted to die. She was 84 and had a life threatening heart condition. After three days she was joking with the staff and had fellow residents popping in and out of her room for chats. Towards the end of her life she actually thanked us for choosing such a lovely place with lovely people to spend her last few months. After she passed, the staff continued to support our family. So very grateful for all they did for our family.

Management and Staff seem more focused on filling out paperwork than actually providing good care. Family have to repeatedly remind staff that the resident's clothing needs to be changed and washed. Fingernails not trimmed, resident frequently cutting his face shaving with cheap disposable razers rather than assistance being provided. Meals not very interesting, do not reflect the promotional material,high sugar desserts every day. Expensive hearing aid and several sets of dentures lost in the system, no effort made by staff to advise family or seek to replace. Mostly very pleasant staff, but poor delivery of care. Resident is happy, family is very disappointed with the standard of care. The organisation's head office admin department has totally failed to produce timely or accurate cost summaries and invoices,and has blamed "software issues" for their failing for nearly 12 months. Local and head office senior management do not understand the Aged Care System as it relates to residents and care recipients.
