I looked after my mum for 7 yrs 12 hrs a day,every day, after her passing I became chairperson of the facility and still do the monthly meeting for the residents /familes, going into my 10yr.. I did find the facility to have a warm feeling, lovely ensuited rooms,and families made welcome under mostly sad situations.It is usually a dreaded fear for resident and families, but a smile and kind words make things more bearable.

like most nursing homes there is never enough staff to give basic care to residents.often a resident will dirty them self while waiting to be taken to a toilet. nurses who speak in their own language to one another disregarding the resident. when playing games as simple as bingo but no prise for winning. This give no encouragement for people to join in activities. lack of staff gives very poor hi gene. Older people need dignity nursing homes removes every last bit of dignity left. so sad. and makes me feel we need to introduce euthanasia as not only are people in pain and no quality of life but loose every thing when entering a nursing home. it is the thought of going into a nursing home that makes me feel that taking my own life would be a better option. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts.

My wife Terry was a resident with Group Homes Australia for 18 months. She has a very progressive case of early onset Alzheimer's and requires a very high level of care. Unfortunately, the founder and ceo decided that she and her team did not want to have to deal with me anymore and terminated the contract between us and issued me a 30 day notice period in which to remove my wife from their care. The reasons for this have never been explained properly to me but most certainly relate to a specific incident where I acted with the best intentions for another resident's medical wellbeing. The manner in which the ceo and her colleagues spoke with and dealt with me and my wife was disgraceful and disappointing given that my wife desperately needed their care. An example being that I was told that if I could not find alternate care then I could take her back home...something they knew I simply could not do. Based on the lack of care and emotion shown towards my wife, their patient, I would absolutely not recommend this facility to anyone.

Group Homes is a new concept in aged care. Small groups of people in a purpose built home that's not institutional. It celebrates diversity of age and disability. Staff are committed, caring and efficient and there's continuity. Carers are homemakers, residents are encouraged to help if they can. Decor is classy. Atmosphere is 'buzzy' and interactive. Most importantly, my mother is happy and contended and I can sleep at night.

The home has been built for purpose and creates a wonderful family environment. 10 Patients - all are entertained daily with activities - excellent. food could be better - has improved over time. Medical care is fair but could be better. Patients and families of patients mix well and create a very friendly environment.

My mother spent 2 years at Terrey Hills before she passed away, she had good care, she loved the nursing staff but was alarmed at the lack of English speaking aged carers and had difficulty at times communicating. The food was good, at times especially on a weekend there was just skeleton staff so sometimes when she rang the buzzer it took a LONG time for anyone to come and see her

My Dad is in Camelot Nursing Home Anzac Pde Maroubra prior to him going there I had previously had Mum in law there. There has been a change for the better but I had a few issues in the beginning. 1. People need help with the time comsuming difficult paper work. 2.Admin Staff or/and Social workers need to be prersent on the day of admission. 3.Staff should be updated with the needs/procedures necessary for the individual needs. 4.Complaints if necessary should be noted so that staff on different shifts could take over where others left off and taken care of ASAP. 5.I would like to see although not practical in many nursing homes patients placed in areas according to their special needs meaning rated from most needing attention to least as you get very NOISY/disruptive patients whom upset others(no fault of their own of course). 6.Dad eventually was settled in a better room I had meetings with Staff social workers but still find some staff although most very pleasant not knowing the procedure in changing (urine bags) in Dads case. ON THE WHOLE MUM

Camelot has some amazing kind and caring staff who have been with the organisation for a very long time. It is wonderful for family and residents to see friendly, familiar faces instead of agency staff.

Staff always friendly and willing to help. My mum is always clean and looking as well as possible (she's) 96 with dementia.

Care and kindness shown by all staff has been excellent. All staff have treated me with kindness and courtesy at all times. I could not have had better care for my wide any where. Cleanliness is also excellent. As a reason of my recommendation one friend has had family member admitted to Camelot.

The facility has limited external access - there is a rooftop but the design of the building prohibits going to the backyard garden area. The facility has been home to dad (and mum who passed last year) for about 7 years. Luckily they could share a room but now dad must share with another resident which has been an adjustment for him. There should be more single rooms available. The staff are friendly and caring. The driveway is also not suitable for long vehicles such as wheelchair taxis which makes taking dad out more difficult.

I feel most staff are friendly and effective, however staff numbers is not great. My biggest issue with this nursing home is the quality of life that it provides for the immobile residents. My grandma who had a large stroke currently either spends all day in her bed or chair with little interaction from staff and no activities etc organised by the home. I have feedback this information to the management with no change. I have suggested music group OT groups, massage groups, rooftop groups etc etc- to provide the residents with some environment enrichment but I have seen no change.

My aunty being In the nursing home that she is has been so happy cause the staff and the care they provide is of top treatment the aged are treated with respect and dignity and they provide a lot of different lifestyles to make them feel comfortable and they assist them in any way they can. By providing entertainment which is from singers to greek folk and traditional dancing to outings and all sort of activities I have never seen them so excited when the Greek dancing group turns up on special occasions and they dance you see the aged clapping and singing with them some also get up and join them. So this is really a wonderful nursing home to put your loved ones

My mother was a resident of the high care dementia specific part of the facility. She was not well cared for during her stay there. I would not recommend this facility to anyone. Thankfully, she is now at another facility where she is well cared for.

Frustrating that my relative has been here for 16months and still stuck in high care which she clearly is not. This is becoming detremental to her well being. There is some really good staff but unfortunately these are being let go. The food does not even rate 1 star. A classic example of looks can be deceiving. The faciliy looks lovely BUT and there are lots of them.

Lovely building looks like a 5 star hotel but that's all that is good about this place. The care and meals need much improvement. I can't believe that have taken juice away as a choice of drink they now can only have water or cordial. More staff is needed to give these lovely residence the care they deserve.

The staff were excellent with my mum during her stay. The staff gave her love and patience and as she went down hill they gave her dignity when she was passing away and compassion to us. Our whole experience with this nursing home has been amazing.

My mum had to put my nan in a nursing home as she could no longer look after her due to her own health issues but my mum still has to go to th nursing home to look after nan as so so many times nan has not been given her dinner and sometimes even her medication has been missed.
