My mother has been in this home for 3 years and at this stage I have to say that overall the quality of care and conditions have deteriorated.

I had a very large surgery last year that required me to have 24/7 High Care Respite.On being told that this would be in an Aged Care Facility I was so unhappy because of the mis information that is sometimes heard, but my 2mths were such a wonderful experience that bas changed my views entirely

Only issue is continuity of care (regular staff often not there and agency don't know enough about individuals routines and conditions).

The staff are wonderful and genuinely seem to care about individuals. Communication has been great and we are notified of any incidents (e.g. falls) in a timely manner. Ideally it would be good to get feedback on when there has been a doctor's visit and the outcomes. We visit twice a week and the only concerns we have are the cleanliness of the room. As a dementia patient, our auntie often hoards things and we have to constantly empty out 'stashed' food from her cupboards. We also have to gather up the various towels, tablecloths, clothes, etc that she accumulates. She doesn't have a receptacle for dirty clothes and we seem to be the only ones gathering her washing and taking it to the laundry.

My parents enjoy living at Aldinga Beach Court but think that the facility is short-staffed and the carers are very busy so sometimes care suffers. They find their carers very friendly on the whole and most of them are very competent. They do notice a difference between what they call employed staff and 'agency staff'.

My Mum had advanced dementia, with a huge load of associated issues from anxiety through delusions, to eventually not being able to talk, eat, walk or communicate. This was so distressing for me and my family. My husband and I had cared for Mum in our home and knew every bit of her issues and needs. Unlike other facilities where she had respite, she was very well cared for both physically and physiologically... And we were always informed, included, listened to and very welcomed. The staff and case manager were amazing, supportive, caring and available. She passed away in Sept last year and the caring continued both via staff attending her funeral to a memorial service in their chapel for her and us. Thank you all so much.

My Mother in-law lived for 7 years with Life Care at Roslyn Court, Joslin, SA. she has moved to Aldinga 8 weeks ago. The difference in these two facilities run by the same organisation is amazing. The staff - all of them, no matter what they do, are friendly and helpful all the time. The general atmosphere is happy and peaceful. The building is bright and airy with door open allowing fresh air to flow through. There are plenty of places to sit and talk over coffee. My Mother-in-law hated the food in Joslin and was always complaining about the coldness, small serves and uninteresting food. Now she has put 2kg in 2 months because she loves the food. Interesting, tasty, and well presented. This is an amazing change in a 90 year old to now find her smiling and talking positively for the first time in 8 years. Well done Aldinga Beach Court.

My wife has been in high care for 2 years. I visit her everyday if possible. She is very happy with her care as I am. It is a pleasure to see her so settled. The staff all seem to know her by name as same with myself. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful facility for us.

I hat to put my auntie into nursing care,this was the hardest thin g for me to do. She is now being cared by the most hiley trained people you could wish for she loves them all. We are still having teething problems but they are sorted very quickly. She is in an old home and I thought this is old but could not ask for anythink more once you open doors. Hope like my little story becauce the more I talk about it the easier it is for me to coupe.

My Mum is in high care at Dutch Aged Care, Oaklands Park, SA - it is the closest to a home away from home. She is cared for with love and compassion, and I could not wish for more. I am very grateful and she is very happy in her own way, even though she would much rather be at home still, but she is not well enough to be at home any more. She is 90 years old.

My mother has been in aged care for nearly 2 years now and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the care that has been given her. After having been diagnosed with dementia 7 years we could see her going down hill fast, but after the decision was made to place her in care she has become more alert though still very forgetful but she has regained a good quality of life, she is eating well and the rosiness has returned to her cheeks. the relieve I feel myself is enormous The staff are friendly and very caring. It is one happy family. .

The nursing home my mother was in, on the surface, seemed to be able to provide the care needed for my mother. Scratch the surface and it is a different story. My mother was left alone tied (strapped) to a chair for most of the day. She wore her night attire all day and wore incontinence pads. If she had her wits about her she would have been horrified. Luckily, I say luckily for her, she passed before too long and is now at rest. This experience has soured me re nursing homes and I dread going into one myself as I age. Another of our parents was subjected to equally grim lodgings and treatment and this too has left a bad taste for us. Luckily for him he passed quickly. During the week days (9-5) regular NH staff are in attendance but overnight and on weekends they employ casual relief staff who do not know the people they are dealing with and the easiest thing to do is to sedate them and keep them either strapped to a bed or in their rooms. Shoddy practice and one that should be outlawed. The food, too, is an afterthought. Tasteless and boiled to within an inch of it's description. Probably reheated time and again too. My mother was an excellent cook used to good wholesome food on a regular basis. She became skeletal and lost the strength to stand. She had many falls and was hospitalized many times for this. The advice given to me initially was that when you find a NH with a vacancy, grab it because placement can be delayed or even become unavailable. This I did with great regret to the detriment of my mother. She deserved much better. Dreadful, horrible and unimaginable bad experiences with nursing homes. Sorry to say this but I am yet to hear of anyone who has had a good experience with a nursing home. Very disappointing and scary to think of what is ahead.

Patients unable to feed themselves would go hungry unless a relative could be there. Owners charging double for medications, which were not regularly given to patients. Facility smelt so bad you would gag on entering.

Can not produce correct invoices and statements. Have delayed refunding RAD by nearly 12 months. Staffing levels have dropped significantly over time. Nursing home is tired and dated. Few staff left are over worked.
