could not ask for a better care and place for aged care

The staff are wonderful but little issues are a problem ie. They will wash the residents clothes but everything goes into boiling water and most come out discoloured and nothing ironed. Not all items are returned and so on. Problem with residents wondering into other people's rooms. Believe mentally ill should be separated from normal residents.

As a relative this facility is perfect for my brother. I would like to see a little more attention to personal care (eg cleaning residents teeth) but on the whole I am very happy.

My mother was in Kimberley Nursing Home, Leederville WA, and while for the first couple of years it seemed quite good, things gradually deteriorated to a terrible level. Her wedding ring that she had worn for over 50 years had suddenly vanished from her finger. When I asked her what happened to it she did not know. Her mind had eventually deteriorated and lost to dementia, but she was very upset and cried. I cried too! Most of her belongings had eventually vanished. I had bought her new clothes, shoes and dressing gowns, 3 of them in fact, after each had vanished! The last one managed to survive only because I had put her name on the back in full view in a permanent black texta ink. I couldn't bear the thought that she might not have had a dressing gown of her own. Over the years the staff behavior had deteriorated significantly to the extent of extreme bullying, not only of the residents but their family members as they came visiting as well. One incident I recall I was sitting on my mother's bed talking to her as she lay in bed, when a very young carer of about 19 or so came in and demanded in a very loud voice I get off the bed immediately. I indicated that there was no where else to sit and she pointed to a commode with a lid and shouted at me to sit there! And kept shouting at me until I got up of the bed. My mother was extremely upset at this behavior as I was. I just could not believe it! I consequently wrote to the matron to complain, but it just got ignored. I confronted the nurse in charge to complain of some of the staff's behavior, plus my mother's belongs vanishing and her response was "If you don't like it leave and take your mother with you." I was shocked, speechless and felt very upset, while they just laughed at me. I was horrified that my mother was left in such a terrible place. Even the meals were as tasteless as cardboard. The very young Carer knew that I had complained about her and just laughed that there was nothing I could do about it, taunting me and so her bullying behavior increased. I asked her to leave me alone with my mother and she put her hands on her hips and said "make me!!" in a very threatening manner with her face about 2 inches from mine. I thought her behavior was disgusting, and told her she should be looking after the residents and treating them with respect and also their relatives with respect. I was absolutely devastated to think that I had put my mother in such a terrible place. I knew I could not leave her there and had to find another place. This one was recommended to me by my mother's social worker through one of the large public hospitals, who couldn't believe what I had told him of the goings on in the place. It was as bad as it could ever get. Before I could move my mother to another place, she suffered a major stroke and died. To this day the thought that my mother's last time on earth was lived out in one of the worst Nursing Homes ever upsets me so much that I was not capable of reporting it to higher authorities for them to check it out. I have a friend who is a kind loving carer who works for an aged care agency and moves from Nursing Home to Nursing Home as needed and she tells me that she is filled with dread when she is sent to fill in at the Kimberley Nursing Home in Leedervile, WA. She agrees it is one of the worst, but she is afraid to complain in case she loses her job. She has told me some stories of her own as to how some people are treated. She only worked as a locum, so they did not treat her complaints with any great importance.

This facility is well appointed and modern, although the rooms are small and very basic. The $20/day for "extra services" is definitely not worth it. Nurses are all lovely, but hard to find after business hours and on weekends - often long wait times after pressing call button. Meals are pretty poor - mostly stodgy food like mash and gravy, lots of crumbed and fried food, frozen vegetables and very small servings (hospital food is better!). There's also really nothing for residents to do all day - no activity room or crafts etc, there's things like bingo and singing but this gets boring day after day. Most of the residents here are very elderly and not mobile. On a more positive note, the building is very nice and clean and in a lovely quiet location. Definitely on the higher side of the rates scale in relation to RAD and DAP, but the nurses (when you can find them) are very skilled and lovely with the residents.

Not enough is being done to educate the staff about dementia when it is the single most challenging disease in aged care. Some of the staff are awesome. ... Some are old and tired. ..... Some are ignorant. .... guess that's life!

Unfortunately, the so called aged care facilities are still NURSING HOMES! One of the most expensive in the northern suburbs of Perth doesn't pay for or realize that they HAVE TO train their staff in Dementia Care! SO .... They are still NURSING dementia patients... Not caring for them!

There are some TRULY AMAZING staff members in the care facility that my parents are/have been in BUT it disturbs me that they are so budget conscious - not client centred. The dementia ward has amazing staff - who are limited by budgeting to initiate the things that they would like to do. I also think that it is outrageous that the therapy staff have to raise funds to purchase the things they need!

The carers, therapy and nursing staff are generally lovely but difficult to find on weekends and after hours due to low staff ratios. If your relative is mobile and able to get out it's ok but the activities are VERY repetitive and boring for many residents. Given the RAD and DAP costs compared to some homes it's not worth the extra money. Management and some admin staff leave a lot to be desired. They forget it is the residents home not theirs and could do with retraining in customer service. Don't expect them to do what they say they will and be prepared to constantly follow up issues. Yes, they don't like it if you correct them but don't be afraid to stand up for your relative because thankfully it's the carers, nurse and therapy staff that look after them.

My Mum first went into low care. Unfortunately within a couple of years she was transferred into the Dementia ward. The facility was brand new, and like a holiday resort. The staff were great, although a lot of the domestic workers were Asian or African which the oldies found difficult to understand and I think because of their age this was a bit concerning for them. The saddest thing about aged care is that some families just drop their family member off and think that there job is done, many residents did not have visitors. The Centre had lots of activities, but perhaps not enough staff to get everyone involved. Food was good. I have experienced first hand the joy my little grandchildren brought to the residents, some thought that they were their kids, but that's OK. My Mum was so proud that her children and grandchildren visited regularly. Should be more kids involved in aged care. Love the idea of family centres visiting the oldies every now and then.

A lot of little things are overlooked. Not enough pyhsio or OT for the individual. Staff sometimes have to remember that this is the residence home

A old lady 85 years old was infested with "scabies" for 3 months before something was done! How can this happen? There must be some guidelines to follow,; "regard hygenic wellbeing"! The place is not cheap to buy in the first place! What went wrong?

Some staff do some strange things like hang worn clothing back in wardrobe. Missing brand new clothing that was sent to the laundry for labeling never seen again. not enough physical stimulation. Need to get a physiotherapist in even though the facility provide one.Food always complained about.

Whilst mother was initially reluctant, she adapted very quickly due primarily to the other residents, she was never happy with the food and seemed to be left to her own devices more often than not. However for a minimal care facility I guess they fulfilled their roll adequately.

I understand this is a hard moment for everyone, mostly the resident. Generally the care staff are supportive and try to stretch themselves to all residents. I guess we forget that the resident is now in prison, unable to move freely around as they once used too at home and watching their frustrations on their faces and not being able to understand why is the worst hurt of all. Mum's room is very very small with electrical cords laying on the floor or running long floor beading. TV is next to her head which will not be helping posture and neck support and generally not a nice way to sit and watch TV. Unable to move bed around to make life easier. Continual need to check cleanliness of bathroom. Friends ring the aged care home and mum isn't able to get their calls. You begin with optimism and trust and then it is just what it is.

My mother is in aged care she has dementia and not able to walk. She is 98 and has been in the home for over 12 months she never wanted to be in a home as she had always heard bad reports. I personally think they do a wonderful job and my generation is not so set against nursing homes.
