My Mum made her own decision to go into care at age 90. Four years later she loves it. Mum feels safe, independent of her children to a degree, in that we aren't her primary caregivers. This enables her to retain some dignity

My mother-inlaw went ino aged care at the age of 95 she passed away aged 98 and a half. The permanent staff were wonderful, really got to know them well. Any thing we needed for her they took care of without a fuss. My husband ended up volunteering there as their bbq cook once a month. All the residents couldn't wait for bbq day to come along. Since her death we have been back to see the residents they still love our visits.

I had a very large surgery last year that required me to have 24/7 High Care Respite.On being told that this would be in an Aged Care Facility I was so unhappy because of the mis information that is sometimes heard, but my 2mths were such a wonderful experience that bas changed my views entirely

Only issue is continuity of care (regular staff often not there and agency don't know enough about individuals routines and conditions).

The staff are wonderful and genuinely seem to care about individuals. Communication has been great and we are notified of any incidents (e.g. falls) in a timely manner. Ideally it would be good to get feedback on when there has been a doctor's visit and the outcomes. We visit twice a week and the only concerns we have are the cleanliness of the room. As a dementia patient, our auntie often hoards things and we have to constantly empty out 'stashed' food from her cupboards. We also have to gather up the various towels, tablecloths, clothes, etc that she accumulates. She doesn't have a receptacle for dirty clothes and we seem to be the only ones gathering her washing and taking it to the laundry.

My parents enjoy living at Aldinga Beach Court but think that the facility is short-staffed and the carers are very busy so sometimes care suffers. They find their carers very friendly on the whole and most of them are very competent. They do notice a difference between what they call employed staff and 'agency staff'.

My Mum had advanced dementia, with a huge load of associated issues from anxiety through delusions, to eventually not being able to talk, eat, walk or communicate. This was so distressing for me and my family. My husband and I had cared for Mum in our home and knew every bit of her issues and needs. Unlike other facilities where she had respite, she was very well cared for both physically and physiologically... And we were always informed, included, listened to and very welcomed. The staff and case manager were amazing, supportive, caring and available. She passed away in Sept last year and the caring continued both via staff attending her funeral to a memorial service in their chapel for her and us. Thank you all so much.

My Mother in-law lived for 7 years with Life Care at Roslyn Court, Joslin, SA. she has moved to Aldinga 8 weeks ago. The difference in these two facilities run by the same organisation is amazing. The staff - all of them, no matter what they do, are friendly and helpful all the time. The general atmosphere is happy and peaceful. The building is bright and airy with door open allowing fresh air to flow through. There are plenty of places to sit and talk over coffee. My Mother-in-law hated the food in Joslin and was always complaining about the coldness, small serves and uninteresting food. Now she has put 2kg in 2 months because she loves the food. Interesting, tasty, and well presented. This is an amazing change in a 90 year old to now find her smiling and talking positively for the first time in 8 years. Well done Aldinga Beach Court.

My wife has been in high care for 2 years. I visit her everyday if possible. She is very happy with her care as I am. It is a pleasure to see her so settled. The staff all seem to know her by name as same with myself. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful facility for us.

They have extended. And the treatment of the residents that live there is sad.Cold food, Not getting showered everyday, cleaning allowed 3 days a week, beds not being made etc. There is a vibe which includes the relationship between the owner and the staff and residents. Happening every week. Lack of staff in every department. I really of they can improve.

My mother was addmited t low care then transfered t high care she had slight demensure still new who i was . My mother had a pressure sore. That ended up as a bed sore. She was not treated properly and it turned to gangreane. Her skin was dying fless. Everyone would not tend to her because of the smell. When she wanted to go to the tiolet they would always leave her to last that was degrading for my mother.She ended up in bed and they were suppose to turn her every two hours. Did not always happen I asked the doctor to have a look the smell was so bad he declined. The insident at the nursing home has been reported . It was to late for my wonderful mother but hopefully it will benifit athers in the home.

The building has been recently renovated and my father had a single room with private ensuite. The staff were very caring and attentive to his changing needs. Whilst my Dad was at home, he refused showers and personal grooming, it was a particular worry of mine and within a week of his arrival at Onkaparinga Valley Residential Care they had trimmed his nails, given him a hair cut and given him a fabulous make over, he looked wonderful! The management team assisted me with administrative tasks and I was so happy with his care. Dad recently passed away and the support that the staff provided him at his end of life and to the family during this very difficult time was a godsend.

Excellent accommodation in a facility that feels more like a motel than a residential care facility. Caring staff, all the extras you could wish for, great range of services available to the resident. Couldn't have asked for a better place for my Father's last few years.

My 88 year old mother broke her hip and suffered from delirium and her memory is very confused consequently she could not live by herself. WB Residential's care for my Mum is amazingand have made the transition easy. The staff are extremely friendly and caring. An example of their care is Mum thinks she has showered when she hasn't, the nurses carers have been monitoring and keeping me involved to ensure this problem is solved. It is very clean and the food is amazing.

Positive experience. Aging in place so both parents in law could stay together and in same room until they died. To both of them the facility became their home. They made friends with other residents and staff.

My dear Mother in law was in aged care. The facility was beautiful, the staff were great but too thinly spread. Mum hated the food and that should not be so difficult to get right. She was left in her room or sitting around in a lounge area with others for much of the day but needed some stimulation. She was content enough but I felt sad that her final years were so empty after a life of being busy, useful and vibrant.

This is the worst place you can ever live: The food is lousy, although chicken is cheap I have never had a schnitzel, the soups are like baby pap, the alternative , Sandwiches are made with worst grade white bread that just clutters up your stomach and since I'm here I'm suffering from bad digestion due to the bad food. I have never received an apple or pear or an orange, only once in a blue moon a banana. The place is located at a noisy street and the train goes past, often blasting a horn. the staff is friendly and keeps the place immaculately clean. there are no exercise facilities here and walking is restricted to a couple of 50 m walks on the facility grounds. In my opinion the management overcharges for the service provided, they must make a small fortunes from the pensions of all the people living here, probably saving to buy a suitable house to start another facility like this to earn even more money. Most people hate to live here and would leave if it was possible to live in another location. All this is not only my opinion but most people here agree. Quite a lot of people here suffer from mental and physical conditions and verbal abuse between inmates happens, a few times this led to physical fights between patients. Most people are not allowed to leave the premises without being accompanied by a staff member who are of course not often available. The center doesn't have a community car, so if transport to the doctor or shopping centre is required a taxi is called, an unnessesary expense of public money. the stay here is very expensive, I receive only about $30 per week in my account due to the hight cost of this accommodation.

Adelaide: ... built first class facility boasting large single accommodation, laundry facilities, spacious lounge ... My mother was in residential age care.

Can not produce correct invoices and statements. Have delayed refunding RAD by nearly 12 months. Staffing levels have dropped significantly over time. Nursing home is tired and dated. Few staff left are over worked.

The nursing home my mother was in, on the surface, seemed to be able to provide the care needed for my mother. Scratch the surface and it is a different story. My mother was left alone tied (strapped) to a chair for most of the day. She wore her night attire all day and wore incontinence pads. If she had her wits about her she would have been horrified. Luckily, I say luckily for her, she passed before too long and is now at rest. This experience has soured me re nursing homes and I dread going into one myself as I age. Another of our parents was subjected to equally grim lodgings and treatment and this too has left a bad taste for us. Luckily for him he passed quickly. During the week days (9-5) regular NH staff are in attendance but overnight and on weekends they employ casual relief staff who do not know the people they are dealing with and the easiest thing to do is to sedate them and keep them either strapped to a bed or in their rooms. Shoddy practice and one that should be outlawed. The food, too, is an afterthought. Tasteless and boiled to within an inch of it's description. Probably reheated time and again too. My mother was an excellent cook used to good wholesome food on a regular basis. She became skeletal and lost the strength to stand. She had many falls and was hospitalized many times for this. The advice given to me initially was that when you find a NH with a vacancy, grab it because placement can be delayed or even become unavailable. This I did with great regret to the detriment of my mother. She deserved much better. Dreadful, horrible and unimaginable bad experiences with nursing homes. Sorry to say this but I am yet to hear of anyone who has had a good experience with a nursing home. Very disappointing and scary to think of what is ahead.

Patients unable to feed themselves would go hungry unless a relative could be there. Owners charging double for medications, which were not regularly given to patients. Facility smelt so bad you would gag on entering.
