Absolutely awful experience for my mother in law who became depressed ,had a fall , I was told she thru herself to the floor was told use it or loose it !! In reference to her not being to walk far. I would tidy her room when I went in and wipe down her over way as didn't seem to be cleaned also that her shortness of breath was anxiety and that SHE was upsetting the night staff !!!!! Wouldn't put my dog in there after this experience

My Mum has dementia and is in a secure aged village. I feel a bit sorry for her as she is physically fit and it has been very hard for her to adjust, she got quite violent with me and the staff and was also baracading herself in her room.The doctor has changed her meds and she has now settled in which is such a relief. It was such a long process for my Mum and I, she lived in n.s.w and I lived in s.a. It took 6 months of doctor's appointments, transfers to 3 different hospitals and waiting for a guardianship tribunal hearing in n.s.w. A bed became available in s.a so I flew Mum back to her hometown so we could also be closer to each other but because it was a different state I had to have another guardianship tribunal hearing with the s.a guardianship board, so finally after 6 months Mum is happy and I can reconnect with my own family after being away from home for so long. The doctors and staff have been very caring and supportive to my Mum and myself throughout this difficult period and they continue to do so, for which I am forever grateful. Thank you for listening and giving me the chance to tell mine and my Mum's story.

It can be depressing for some residents and visitors. I believe the residents should be able to live like they did at home eg. If they want to sleep in, they should be allowed to. Their television programs should be monitored. Residents are shocked by some of the terrible stuff on tv! I suggest putting on some old classics for them to watch. Some of the residents can cause other residents to become sad when they talk to each other. I think both residents and staff need counselling when required. Some staff are really great. The security is great. A lady was scared that a man next door to her would come into her room, maybe men and women could have their own sections. This home has some beautiful paintings on their walls, a lovely library, a nice tea room where residents can be with their friends or family and some lovely views.
