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

My mother was treated with dignity, respect and love. All staff from cleaners , kitchen staff , lifestyle, Carers and nursing showed the very best of their professions. They all make a difference everyday in the lives of the residents and families.

My Mum has frontal lobal dementia which has been quite a rapid deterioration, she also fell and fractured her hip and fema, which added to her problems, she has bouts of being quite teary and also can be bad tempered. The staff at Andrew Arthur house in Aldgate have been quite amazing as she can be very difficult to deal with as she needs high care. It is hard enough to watch a loved one slowly lose their mind and not knowing what is really happening to them. I have so much respect for the staff that provide the care and have looked after my Mum. They always show compassion, patience and a caring manner and also provide ongoing support in such a tough time.

This was the first time my Mum had been placed in respite care and understandably Mum as well as family were apprehensive but she was made to feel "at home" instantly on her arrival there. The staff were always on hand for my Mum if needed and also taking calls from me (I live interstate) any time night or day. I would have no hesitation for my Mum to re-visit there in the future if necessary.

Our family has been very happy with the care and attention my mother has received over the last 7 years at Charles Young. In particular the staff are very kind to the residents and very helpful and friendly when communicating with family and friends. The many atriums and courtyards in between the different areas add a special atmosphere to the facility.
