Quality building with spacious interesting design. Meal times are too close together, primarily the evening meal could benefit by being even 30 min. later than current - would make the residents evenings thereafter shorter. One hospital/aged care facility in the region will serve toast as supper prior to residents retiring - worth considering - maybe a savoury biscuit/cheese would be less messy than toast to cap off the day? Some of the 4 corridors/wings have a good garden/car park activity view - other resident rooms look out on dead grassed non gardened area - need to have something pleasurable for residents to view from all rooms. Breakfast lacks protein - occasional eggs would be beneficial. Facility is isolated from, and has no connection with community groups - makes for limited visitation, incorporation of volunteers, more variety in activities persuable etc. Very disappointing that a person of limited mobility, e.g. can stand, one-step, and pivot, is classified as "can't walk"- and therefore upon entry to aged care facility is 'made a near-paraplegic' by denying use thereafter of patients legs/feet, this as 100% patient movement by aged care staff then becomes by aerial hoist. Most undignified to render a partly capable person a 'near paraplegic' to accommodate faster handling of resident by nurses - no respect for the resident person. Overall quality of Stella Anderson Nursing home okay otherwise - it does seem however to be tilted toward nursing rather than aged care and ageing in place. Day excursions are provided to select patients each week which those participating enjoy. No indication of concert attendance. Would benefit if some local Bendigo or country area groups could have their meeting at the home say once a month. Also walk-able residents would benefit by an organised short walk outside say weekly - possible as this home is in a 'paddock' like area, and some trees, birds, fences, birds etc. nearby would change a residents perspective - a change of scenery once a week via an organised 30 min. walk/sit would benefit - 'a change is as good as a holiday' - as best as possible in a nursing home environment.
