Having problems with staff not answering call bells.My Mother had 2 falls on 15 Nov notified by staff of falls the next day on visiting Mum she rang bell to go to toilet. Waited 30 min then I transferred Mum to toilet with difficulty she rang bell for help again waited 15 min when staff did arrive just stated they were busy.When I approached supervisor she stated the policy was to answer bells within 20 mins .I find this is to good care and are elderly deserve better care.

My Mum has been in Southern Cross The Pines Lodge North Plympton S.A for 18 months now. I can't thank those wonderful people enough. Now I have placed my Dad in there too. You couldn't find a better Aged Care Facility.

What you see is not what you get. Food is absolutely appalling, this facility does not even have a kitchen! Building and grounds are excellent. Lack of permanent staff is very unsettling for residents, they never know who is going to be working, too many agency staff who barely speak English.
