At first in 2004 I was very relieved that a place was found for my mother, who was in her 90s and dementia had a grip on her. I picked on the staff of the establishment for not doing every little things for her. I never missed their lunch and dinner time to feed my mum myself. Going there nearly everyday opened my eyes to the fact that the people who work and run these facilities are part angels and human at the same time. I got attached to three facilities after that - one with my mother's stay and the other two when my better-half answered Gods calling and started working and caring for aged and in-need people. She is still engaged in one facility near our home. God bless the Nurses and Nursing Homes for without them it would be miserable for people who need help to exist.

My Husband has been in the Garden City Retirement Village since Janurary last year. There have been countless times I have complained to the staff and even wrote a letter to head office, who referred me back to the Director of nursing , who I had already spoke to and was told in no uncertain terms that her nurses were fully qualified and was brushed off like a child. I am 62 yrs, So was not very happy. I have shed many tears about this and wish I could get him into a home closer to where I live.It is very inconvenient to visit him where he is. I have tried many other nursing homes but to no avail. Because he has already been placed, they think it is not an urgent matter any more. This Home is not looking after my husband. I have complained so many times but it falls on deaf ears. I am NOT being heard. I have picked my husband up for an outing on many occasions and he is unshaven and unkempt. Sometimes he has the same clothes on from when I saw him last 5 days ago.. I dont know where to go for help as These people are not listening, it is so exasperating. I NEED HELP! Thankyou Kerry Joy Sutherland

My Grandad was only this their care for 2 weeks, because after a week the director told my Mum he will be moved to the non-secure section when a bed becomes available. She tried to voice her concerns but got no where, so I went in to talk to the director and the conclusion was we had no choice he was moving to the non-secure area. Much like the other review here, you feel like you are being spoken to like a child. My job is actually to advocate for people, so I was confident to do so, but when you short unprofessional responses you soon see that any concern you will ever have with the company will never get you anywhere. Much like the other review to, I wrote a written email to the director and head office explaining why we were withdrawing him from the facility.... i never even received an acknowledgement from either. You would think if they cared about the directors poor communication skills that they would follow up the issues mentioned. We decided to remove him not only for his safety (changing to non-secure) but honestly who can be bothered to deal with a director who is not approachable and wont listen everytime an issue arises. We noticed he was always wearing the same clothes and was never shaved. When the issue was addressed we were told they only do showers every third day. They do this by default, unless you request otherwise. My grandad is incontinent (urine and faecal) so every 3 days is unacceptable. My grandad also asked once to go to the toilet, the staff member shut the door and when she came out said "all done" as if she toileted him. When went in and his pad was undone (he could have pulled on it) and when we went to do it up it was drenched with urine. We called the staff back in who looked and said "but I only just changed it 2 hours ago" and proceeded to do the pad back up. We told her to change it. I would not recommend this nursing home to anyone. Their hygiene standards is not good, the director isn't interested in your concerns, and head office is not interested either. Apart from changing his pad we had no issues with the staff, they all seemed lovely, but when mum visited a couple of times at 630pm the residents are already in bed. They also lock the front gate so you have to buzz in and it can take a long while before they let you in.

My Mum spent a couple of months in Anam Cara before she passed away from an incurable brain tumour in January 2014. The staff were very caring and the facility was well managed and designed. I particularly liked the animals, which my Mum enjoyed seeing when we took her out. They included a dog that did the rounds with one of the nursing staff, budgies in an aviary and chickens that roamed the garden. My Mum was quite depressed towards the end of her life but regular reflexology from one of the staff helped to make her feel more relaxed and at peace. I'd like to pay particular tribute to the Clinical Nurse Specialist who worked in the Loman/Galen section where my Mum lived. She gave us time, kindness and care that was over and above what would be expected. I'm so glad that we were able to get a place at Anam Cara for my Mum.

Regular complains will be met with intimidation and retribution from some of the nursing staff.

Majority of staff there are heartless people. They do the minimum and ignored the call for help from residents. The more we complain the lesser care our mom gets. The quality of the building looks nice, but don't be fooled by it.

my mum was at Helping Hand Residential Care Facility at Northgate South Australia. I always felt like I was walking into her hotel when I went to visit her, not a nursing home. The enviroment was stylish, upmarket,warm, welcoming. The staff were caring, friendly,compassionate, understanding, showed patience, empathy and had the residents well being very hight on their list. Unfortunately my mum passed away January this year. The last 10 months of her life while in a care facility was a wonderful experience for her, she was loved and well cared for by all the staff..

Bethesda Caring Centre, located in Corinda, a western suburb of Brisbane has a homey feel. Nestled above the Brisbane River, the friendliness of the staff was evident to visitors, who, upon arrival are greeted at Reception by friendly and helpful administration staff. Adequate staffing levels provide all basic care requirements, and Registered Nurses are available throughout any given 24 hour period. Care, therefore is provided to residents 24/7. Pleasant courtyards, ensuite bathrooms to most rooms, a great leisure and life-style program complete the picture, together with a menu to suit all dietary requirements.
