The care at this facility was such that for almost 5 years I felt the need to be with my husband for a minimum of 8 hours every day. He was totally dependent and could not communicate. Aged care facilities do not have enough carer hours to look after their residents needs or dignity properly. The carers themselves were mostly extremely caring and did the best job that they could within their limited time. In the last 18 months care hours were cut twice and several key staff as well as carers left because they found it difficult to see the residents get even worse care. My husband died in October 2015.

Well being of residents is primary concern. Mum is happy well cared for, clean, generally good health and is included in all activities whether she can actively participate or just joins in and listens. Staff level of care abilities excellent. Up to date training is obvious. Always notified if any issues with mum - good and bad. Am happy with this choice for her and would highly recommend to anyone. It's not sparkling and new but it has all the skills and comforts where it counts.

My husband has been a resident for 6 years and in that time due to his change of personality I have found it hard to accept at times. I live in a unit close by and visit him 4 days a week and have 4 meals with him. Once a week he visits me in unit and is driven up by access taxi for the afternoon.

My father has only been at Sash Ferguson for under 3 months. He made the decision to move there himself where he was no longer able to look after himself at his home with no support. He was happy to move there as quickly as possible. I have found the staff are very caring, patient, and very helpful, especially now because my father has been recently diagnosed with dementia, making it a very stressful time for me. I live in WA and they have kept in touch with me and offered a lot of support and guidance with the situation. The centre is a very homely accommodation with lovely peaceful gardens and surroundings.

My father was at Cottage Grove for over ten years and for most of the time he was relatively happy. Apart from suffering a major stroke leaving him confined to a wheelchair and depression, I would have to say 99% of the staff were wonderful and caring. I completely understand that nursing homes are well understaffed and staff are generally run off their feet which is sad to see, we have personally experienced this over ten years, sometimes leaving members of the family upset that a family member in the nursing home hasn't been attended to. I would love to see all nursing homes with enough staff to be able to attend to all patients within a timely manner therefore not leaving patients somewhat distressed which can be through no fault of the skeleton staff at the nursing home. Over ten years of visiting my father, my mother visiting on a daily basis - we were able to experience a lot of the general running etc. of a home, some not quite so good but a lot very good. We commend all the fantastic staff at Cottage Grove who shared a passion for caring for my father in a dignified manner.

Excellent cheerful and caring staff made all the difference. A lovely room with a kitchen and ample gardens for my father to walk and sit in all helped him to enjoy his time there.

No such thing as a good nursing home.........just some are better than others...........after almost 10 years visiting my husband......I have seen it all. Accreditations should be unannounced........too much time given to sprucing up and making things look almost perfect.......which is not a true everyday picture. Eggs!!! Anyone remember what one of these are????

Only negative was what we felt to be unnecessary dental check on day family arrived to celebrate his birthday when we couldn't see why this was even necessary as he passed away few wks after. Timing of this was all wrong at end of a day too, around 5pm. We had to wait for them to finish. He had severe dementia so activities were limited but overall were very happy with care.

My mother has been at her aged care home for 4 yrs now . While I have had a few incidences that I was not happy about , in general it's not too bad . I do think the nursing staff are absolutely fantastic but the carers really need a lot more training and compassion to do a good job X

From my very first contact with Trowbridge House I have been impressed by the dedication and attention to detail by the staff and leadership. My mother who was extremely reluctant to go into a facility is now safe and well cared for and enjoying it. In particular the atmosphere of residents being At Home makes such a difference. I initially contacted several homes and this was the ONLY one willing to assist me to understand the process and guide me through a very traumatic time. I thank God I came across this facility.

Rather older building - 60's style in dire need of a major renovation. Food cooked on premises, however continuously served of poor quality. Very Short on activities, especially on weekends. Very friendly and helpful staff, except when agencies are used especially on weekends.

More staff is needed. Staff is being hurt more staff needed. Staff will not share their injuries with head staff as afraid of their jobs going. More staff is needed to support each other in order to be able to do a good job as a carer. More staff happy aged care workers and cleaner rooms. The staff is doing its very best they can. More staff.

The management of Towbridge House has changed numerous times in recent years (4). Therefore I consider there has been lack of continuity in terms of overall planning and lack of familiarity and connection.

Mum has been at Trowbridge since May 2016 and she has settled in very well, due in the main to the wonderful care provided by all who work at this facility. There is always a warm caring atmosphere created by staffs helpfulness and friendly interaction with all who are in their care as well as visitors. I am also very impressed with Trowbridge's culture of ensuring that family members feel and are actively included in the centres operation through regular consultation, formal and informal meetings. Given that there has been some changes to management since May the centre has maintained the continuity efficiently a job well done by all staff. Thank you for the opportunity to respond.

Mum had dementia and I could not have found a more caring, lovely place for her to be in. When it was time for her to go they provided music and scent to ease her passing. All the staff came in to say goodbye and she slipped away peacefully. Can not say enough about the quality of care during her time at Allambi.

I found the permanent staff good but some of the casual or relieving staff not so good. I was disappointed when I spoke to a senior person and asked for it to be in confidence. This was not treated as I wanted. I was very disappointed. There were a few other issues but I believe the facility was far better than a lot of others that I had seen.

I admitted my father who had recently descended into that dreadful place - dementia. It as cruel and hurtful and he would ask me why I had imprisoned him. For several months I cried each time I visited him. Then something happened. I realised he may not die for some time and tears were not helpful and so I got to know the residents and the staff. I took my golden retriever in to meet them all and watched otherwise isolated elderly people unable to communicate effectively enjoy my dog's presence and shower her with love. The staff were extraordinary, always going the extra mile for dad, welcoming me and my dog, chatting about dad's day and the moments he enjoyed. They shared DVDs with him, talked on those topics that interested him and even represented the nursing home at his funeral 14 months later. After he had fallen on New Year's Eve, and the end was nigh, they wanted me to take him back to Allambi so that they too could have closure. His room was immaculate, fresh flowers adorned the shelves and tables and I was permitted to stay with him on a folding bed. I was offered food, comfort, coffee, time out and everything I needed in those four days and knew, absolutely, that I had done the right thing in admitting him to this wonderful home. It was such a pleasure as few months later to visit with gifts, cards and many thanks for the special treatment my poor old dad received in that last, difficult phase of life. I shall always be grateful.

The age of the rooms where my dad is located are very tired. Chairs look worn and dirty. Often there seems to not be enough staff, even though the staff on try their best. Weekends are tough to actually get in the front door because reception is not manned. The lack of an area to have coffee/food has been disappointing.

Allambi is a bright and clean place to live. Staff are kind, caring and friendly. Due to staff shortage at times it is frustrating that things aren't as promised but overall if you need to be in care Allambi is a nice facility.

The facility of Allambi is excellent. The rooms are large, light and mostly look out into gardens. Maybe due to staff strategies the care could however, improve. My family member who is a resident in a dementia ward, does not have the help that I believe should be given to dress himself or supervise showering. His room is often unclean, especially his toilet. I am disappointed not with the immediate regular staff who interact with him, but mostly with the interest and care given by the clinical nurse. Despite that, I would not move him elsewhere.

My father was a resident of Eldercare Evanston Park for only 3 months but his care was first class. He could be a difficult person at times and hard to please but he enjoyed his time there and could not praise the facility enough. The staff were very attentive to hi needs and I cannot fault his care.
