Mum spent 5 years in care with Alzheimers. She decided to move from the family home on the Far South Coast of NSW to the Hunter to be closer to her children and grandchildren. Her new Aged Care home was (and still is) an excellent facility supported by the Greek community in Newcastle. I found the staff generally upbeat and helpful to family members. Changes in executive could impact on staff morale, however. Towards the end of Mum's life there was a definite change in the sense of wellbeing of staff and some unrest. I don't think this was conveyed to residents, but I was aware of it. Mum was a relatively long term resident who was visited regularly by family and friends (she had some old friends who had moved into the area, and many who were travelling through). The staff knew her well and monitored the progress of her disease, giving feedback and support to our family. I think this can be overlooked sometimes in Aged Care and I really appreciated that aspect of her care. I also respect that two carers who loved my Mum attended her funeral. Out of uniform and in their own time.

Mum has been here for 3 years. She has been much loved by staff and it shows.

The thing that would improve the quality of lifestyle for residents in my opinion is the provision of better activity programmes - eg men's shed, computer classes, outings. The staff are caring and do their best, but they are so busy, and many have little training.
