My MIL received fabulous care apart from one incident, up to and including her passing 5 1/2 years after she entered the facility.

The nursing home is for primarily dementia residents. The staff are excellent with their care of the residents. They show the residents a lot of dignity. The food is good quality for a facility of this size with the main meal cooked for lunch on the premises. There are lifestyle excursions for most of the residents, unfortunately some are unable to walk so do miss out on these lifestyle activities. But they do have volunteers who come to play music for the residents, assist with art classes, games and companion dogs come and visit. They encourage residents families to bring in their own pets as most of the residents smile when they meet a pet.

My mother is in Ferndale Gardens in Mortdale. It is very clean, does not have that"old people" smell. it has a lovely coffee shop, hairdressing salon, gymnasium. She goes out on bus trips very regularly and the entertainment is great.The staff on the whole are fabulous ( always there is an exception to the rule) The food is quite nice and the residents are treated with respect. Overall, very happy.

My mother in law has had wonderful care since she moved to Ferndale that I would recommend it to anyone.

Ferndale Gardens warning. We found Ferndale Gardens Mortdale to be a terrible place and a horrible experience for our 96 year old mother and us, her 3 children. After paying extra for so-called "extra services", we found it uncaring, disorganized with poor management and a complete breakdown of communication between the office staff and the nursing staff. It may look nice, but think carefully before you place your loved one there.

I found it annoying and hurtful that when my father was in care with dementia, in the high care section, most of the conversations my sister and I had with staff was them continually telling us that he is frustrating as he cant remember. They would say we explain to him what is to happen then he keeps asking and asking so we tell him to be quiet. I did not like this at all as this was the reason my father had to forego living on his own, his short term memory loss. I also felt they were understaffed and could not give all residents the care they needed. Overall not a good experience for my family. My father died after being in care for 21/2 mths. He also had a major fall the very first night he was there and spent 10 days in hospital with a bleed on the brain (again not enough staff) and or understanding of short term memory loss. Also we were not notified that our father was dying. We went for a normal visit to find that he had dramatically gone down hill on a few days hence h died 24 hrs later. I felt that the staff should have contacted the family and when I questioned the staff about my dads condition and that he must not have been for a lot longer than the last hour they said no only the last hour ( there seemed to be a cover up by some), but other staff members said he stopped eating about four days beforehand and was not having himself, this is what and when we should have been told. It was a very distressing time and one that I will never forgive them for. That was MY father not just a number!!!!!!

I am happy with where my mum is. I do think that the ancillary staff need more training in understanding dementia.

I could not fault Ferndale Gardens at Mortdale NSW. The care and support we received for my Parents-in-Law, made a difficult time less stressful. The lack of a 5th star on quality of food was in memory of my mother-in-law who saw herself as a food expert but truly the food was excellent. The staff took the time to chat with my father-in-law who had become socially isolated due to his failing health and to engage him in many activities he found so rewarding to the point of renaming the property "Paradise Gardens" To the staff a simple Thank You, with a deep appreciation of the love and care you showed our family.
