It is far more stressful to have a loved in aged than to care for them at home.

Hammond Care Woy Woy and Erina NSW were exceptional. Staff at both facilities were sensational, level of care was everything you could possibly hope for. They have their own kitchen in each cottage where residents can help peel vegetables etc. Laundries in each cottage allows residents to hang out the washing outside on rotary clothes line in each cottages own back yard. Yes you get the picture it is just like home, with each resident having their ensuite large comfortable bedrooms. Just beautiful. They do everything so well, and we were so blessed they were there to care for our very precious Mum.

My mother has resided at HammondCare for 2 years, firstly at their Woy Woy facility and now at Erina. HammondCare is always at the forefront of research into dementia which is evident in their model of care. Smaller cottages within each complex allows meals to be prepared in a homely atmosphere where residents senses are stimulated by the aromas of baked dinners or cakes. Each resident receives individual attention to make their day as suitable and comfortable to their stage of illness. The genuine care delivered by the staff is second to none. I wouldn't want my mother to be anywhere but with HammondCare.

Our mother passed away yesterday aged 92 having resided in a dementia facility on the Central Coast of NSW for the past 3 years. She had received the most genuine and professional care we could ever have hoped to find for her. The business model whereby residents are housed in smaller cottages within a larger facility means they benefit from having their meals prepared in a homelike environment where they can smell cakes and roast dinners cooking and receive the best care in a tastefully decorated and well kept home.

My mother in law needed extra care and was difficult but was treated well and with respect we could not have asked for better care

Our mother spent 3 years in residential care until she passed away in 2015 from dementia related illnesses. Now we have my mother-in-law in the same facility because we believe we have found the best care group, with the best model of operation. The home style accommodation and individual family style care is second to none and the staff members from management to carers are of the highest calibre.

Would only recommend if desperate for a placement. Food has dropped to well below standard. They advertise themselves as an extra services facility (for which a fee is charged) with chooses of meals but in reality the residents are rarely asked to submit their menu choices and are given whatever the staff puts down in front of them. Maybe all levels of Advantaged Care management should experience the "dinners" that are served at their facilities with the facility managers required to eat twice a week with the residents. Cleanness of the dining area is a ongoing issue with placemats reused between residents without cleaning with old food etc is stuck on them. Ridges in the tables are full of debris. Medication give out after being held in the hand of staff. Staff behaviour in the evenings sometimes boards on playground antics rather than trying to maintain a quiet serene atmosphere - important for residents who have dementia. The staffing seems to have changed - with a noticeable flow on effect to services. The nursing care shows a lack of experience in day to day nursing that staff at hospital level would obtain. There is a reluctance to ask for advice or admit if they don't know. The only pluses - with a very big capital P - are the occupational therapists, the physiotherapy team, the cleaning crew who do the rooms etc, the laundry ladies and a few gems among the staff.

not the best, lost clothing, non diet foods for diabetic, not showered daily, over charging, for crowded room, plus it's not the cleanest place.

My father lived at Villawood Age Care for 6 years and the team who worked there were very professional and cared for him extremely well I had no concerns the entire time and he really enjoyed it until his dementia got worse and the care then was over and above anything I ever expected of the wonderful staff.

My father was placed in an aged care facility several years ago after an operation and illness. It was the most confronting situation I think I have been in.Some of the things that happened there were cruel and negligent. My father was tied by sheets in his bed and the skin was rubbed off his thin legs. I saw so many other poor patients who did not have family's suffering.Staff who were not qualified were paid poorly and they coped with the worst jobs. The ratio of patients to nurses and carers was disgusting. Within in weeks of being admitted and being continent most patients ended up in nappies because it was easier than getting them all to the toilets, especially first thing in the morning when it was obvious the busiest time and not enough staff. I believe all Residential Aged Car should be run for non profit.Maybe then a better quality of staff could be afforded. I have done some research and so many members of the medical fraternity own or have shares in Nursing Homes.No wonder they do not believe in euthanasia .it is not their moral and ethical beliefs, it is their greed. The wealth of a country is shown by the treatment of its aged. Unfortunately with the "baby boomers" aging and will soon start to need residential aged care, the aged care facility's and policies will go backwards at a rapid pace.The standards of these so called aged care residential homes will drop even more and so many more poor helpless elderly people will suffer with all their dignity been taken.

Older style building. Two levels. Spotlessly clean. Overall, staff is exceptional. They have a very trying job lookingafter high care residents, but also having time to offer kind words and encouragement to visiting family and friends. Overseen by a strong management team and educators.

I am grateful my mother has a safe environment where her general care needs can be met. Like most aged care facilities there is rarely enough staff and of course this impacts the residents. Quality caring staff are hard to come by.
