Was a very bad centre for my grandma. Staff didn't clean properly, cups were left in same area for days, food was horrible. She passed away after only a few months being there.

My mum was forced to take the first available home available...we had no choice. In the 5 weeks she spent in hospital prior to the home she gained weight and was walking with aid. she was left in a wheelchair and forgotten in the home...i visited every day and witnessed her frailty grow and complained to deaf ears

We looked at quite a few aged care facilities for our Mum, but this one stood out from the group. It is clean

Woodport aged care Erina is where my mother is. It was cheaper than a lot of places and we chose this place for her dur to lack of funds. My mother had had multiple falls even with a care person with her. She has had some horrible illnesses and bumps and bruises and the doctor is never called. I call meetings with the staff and they say they will attempt to improve things for her but don’t. They don’t change her pads and she has to sit in her own excrement all day. She has dementia so never complains but I see what they do to her and I am appalled. She has had clothes, money, jewellery and other items stolen from her. They even reimbursed me for some of the items stolen when I threatened to go to the ombudsman and the police. They insisted I sign an affidavid to say I wouldn’t talk. I don’t have enough space on here to include all the wrong doings she has experienced. I would love to move her but we don’t have the funds to pay a higher amount, Please do something about these horrible places.

This facility is disgraceful. Staff are lazy and have no empathy or understanding and certainly no time management skills. Made the terrible mistake of placing my mother here and we lost her after 3 months. Mum spent 6 weeks of that time in acute care as Mum developed a pressure area and subsequently a major infection due to the lack of care she received. Quite simply Mum was neglected. My family took our concerns to the management several times and we were ignored.

Dad was at Macquarie Lodge for 9 weeks respite in 2014. It was by far the best place he has stayed at. He was 93 then and has dementia. The staff were particularly caring, warm and friendly and they followed my instructions perfectly.

EJP facility has got a very good lay out and has good facilities and resources. However, there is frequent outbreaks, unable to contact staff most of the time as no one answers the phone and the staff are not friendly.

We would never recommended this organisation to anyone. The staff are nice but overworked and totally underpaid. The management are atrocious and completely out of touch with the residents and staff. My mother was in this nursing home and I could not wait to get her out of there. The two managers - D and J, are the most rude, greedy people, and are totally 'not' management material. Does the Salvation Army head office realize how their nursing home is being run? You should be ashamed of yourselves. I will NEVER donate another cent to Salvation Army.

Where do I start. They gave her someone else's medication, Dr didn't come till following day. They don't clean her properly, she often soils herself, has to try and change herself and when I visit the residue is all over her. We have asked repeatedly for a device to assist her getting in and out of bed and keep getting told the physio needs to asses her. We are going on 9 months now and still nothing. Simple requests like her toilet keeps running and needs fixing go unattended. 3 weeks on still maintenance has not been. I keep asking and they say yes we will get someone to look into it but no-one has been. If she had more money I would move her out but this place is cheaper than most. Obviously you get what you pay for. Do not put your loved one in here.

Aged care place i saw was terrible, facilities were OK. Patients were even being told to change their toiling habits; They had mostly been used to having bowel motions after breakfast. Then they were told they has to "GO"before dinner instead.Most of the staff were Indian men or Thai girls. They were quite good, but I would not like a man showering me.I saw one Australian nurse drop patient's tablets on floor and then pick them up and gave them to patient.

Riverview gardens is a very old centre, well maintained, Most of the carers and staff working there are non- australian and are hard to understand , Not all ) I have trouble understanding them and I wonder how the older residents go. It would be nice to have a Australian sometimes to talk to about our family member.

Also the overcharging we had to endure and the amount of time to get the money back. Over $12,000 that is a overcharge big time. When there was a outing my Aunty was never allowed to go because to difficult, well don't we pay these establishment extra to take them out. No only if you can walk , eat etc on your own , well why not stay home.
