My mother was a resident of TLC sunlight for four years. She passed away in February 2019. Her care was of the highest standard. In the last weeks of Mums life the compassion that was shown to mum and our family from the staff was invaluable. Silence you were an angel sent to me in such a hard time of my life and I thank you for this. Unfortunately my dad had a bad fall just after mum passed away. He has now been admitted to Sunlight. Today I walked away knowing this was the right decision. The kindness and understanding from the staff towards Dad has made the decision so much easier. They have made him feel like it is home. I would like to thank Margaret White for making this happen without her I don’t know where he would have ended up. Thank you for all your kindness and support.

Not much choice as no beds available close by. No nursinghome in our area Have to travel, most of them 20x30 minutes away. This one was only 15 min drive. Not enough personnel, food portions too small. Lifestyle not enough to do. For men there is nothing to do they become very bored and are then not happy.

Sunlight is an extremely great aged care facility with a lot of excellent staff. Just a few staff that didn't give that extra effort. The food at lunch was fairly good at dinner not so good baked beans on toast is an example of what was served to my mother. We visited her most days going in one morning to find they didn't expect mum to last the day. Which made us angry that we hadn't been rang to alert us and only found out when we got there.

My husband went into respite for the first time while I had a knee replacement, was not sure how he would like it, but he was very pleased with nursing staff being very friendly and helpful, loved the atmosphere as it reminded him of his childhood house, so as a carer for many years I will not hesitate to take some time off next year and have a good holiday rest.

Mum is settling in to her new lifestyle with lots of care and support from a team of professionals in a lovely setting.

My mother has been in a nursing home for about 8 years now and I always feel confidence when I leave her after the visit that she will be well cared for, safe and loved. It was a difficult decision at the start to place her in an aged care facility, but after all these years I know I have done the right thing by her.

Standards slipping. Staff care but their employer doesn't and pushes them to the bring. The latest outsourcing of cleaning and laundry has been a total disgrace. Would recommend TLC homes.
