Review Villa Maria Catholic Homes - Shanagolden Aged Care Facility

My mother was almost 102 when she entered this facility. She was left sitting in a wheelchair most of the day, simply because it was easier for them not to constantly lift her in and out for toileting. She was left so long on her 102nd Birthday that she fell out of the wheelchair. This was the beginning of the end and she passed away one week later. This was supposed to be a top-notch facility and there seemed to be a problem with continuity of staff and the care left a lot to be desired, also the cleanliness of her room was appalling.

Shanagolden (Catholic Homes) and staff in Pakenham Vic are the most welcoming, attentive, caring, supportive and helpful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. As a division 2 nurse I have seen many an inside of nursing homes and I can only be honest in saying Shanagolden is THE best. My 93 year old grandmother moved into their care this year after suffering a major stroke. She was living independently in her own home until the stroke and the staff and facilities at Shanagolden have made this somewhat degrading transition pleasant for my grandmother. I cannot thank them enough for taking the pressure and stress off my elderly mum who first attempted to care for her mum in her own home. Although it would be nice to win a luxury cruise, this is not the reason for my review. I have written it as it needed to be said, these staff and the facility itself are deserved of the accolade.
