Now it’s our turn to look after you
Hear from our residents
I am very thankful for my life thus far and am so grateful to be here at Teloca, it has given me the peace and security to live the remainder knowing that I am being well cared for.
We tell everyone that this is the best Nursing Home on the coast. Thank you so much for the care provided to our mother.
Kevin enjoys living here at Bill McKenzie gardens and says the staff are very helpful and caring, he has met a lot of very interesting people. He enjoys the range of activities and the quality of food is tremendous.
Living here since 2015 has done me the world of good. Thanks to the wonderful staff here I now feel that my service years are respected and honoured.
We feel so privileged to be living at The Grange, there is no doubt in our minds that packing up from our family home and a lifetime of memories in a small country town and moving to Wagga Wagga and the security of The Grange is the best decision we could have made for our future. We have everything we need, strong support from the Village staff, a lovely community of new friends and no shortage of things to do. We have such a beautiful outlook from the windows of our Villa.
We moved into Tea Gardens Grange in 2001 from Berowra Heights in northern Sydney, where we had lived for 35 years. We love it here, especially the freedom to travel and enjoy life surrounded by great neighbours. We’re both volunteers for Meals on Wheels and Lyn is involved with the RSL Ladies Auxiliary, Lioness, Community Transport and Craft.
I moved into Bimbimbie Village from Albury around two and a half years ago to be closer to family who live in the area. I enjoy playing Mahjong and being a member of the Ladies Auxillary; I contribute to the Craft Group and also volunteer at the Op Shop. I really enjoy the social aspect of village life, I’ve made some good friends and appreciate my wonderful neighbours.
"Roy Wotton Gardens is the most homely and pleasant aged care facility on the south coast. It has a lovely feel to the place"
After looking at a number of options my husband and I determined that Taara Gardens was a place to be, and moved in September, 2015 after selling the Oakdale property. I‘m a country girl through and through and love the outlook and feel of our lovely village.
I have five grandchildren and three great grandchildren whom I adore and would have them with me all the time if I could. Here at William Beech I love seeing the pre-school and school children when they visit, I regularly attend morning exercises, colouring, bingo, outings, board games, reminiscing, craft and many of the other activities run within and outside of the facility.
Since moving into Agris Hutrof House I have made many friends. I have a lovely room looking out onto a very nice courtyard with a nice garden. I enjoy sitting amongst my plants and watching them grow. My hobbies are doing embroidery, sewing and all forms of craft.
I love my apartment and I find everyone at Tobruk have been kind including the Coordinator Holly. I love to have been able to bring some of my plant pots making it feel like home. I have oregano, parsley and basil herbs, some yellow roses and geraniums, my favourite. I have been very busy settling in but soon I will be able to help were needed if I can.
I moved from Sydney to Chauvel Village three and a half years ago to be closer to my youngest son. I love the fresh country air, the atmosphere of Chauvel Village and the friendliness of the people. One of my favourite daily rituals is meeting with other residents at afternoon tea. I also love the opportunity to dress up and have a bit of fun; last year I was Queen Elizabeth at our Winter Festival which was a hoot.
Due to my health I moved to Remembrance Village in 2016 and have been having a lovely time with all the activities, especially music, entertainment and concerts. I also enjoy playing cards and every opportunity I h ave I get together with other residents and we play euchre for hours until we are told its time for the evening meal. Playing cards with the RAAF on a Thursday afternoon is something to look forward to as well.
For sometime I have intended to write to management to thank RSL LifeCare staff for the exemplary service and care they consistently provide to my mother. This latest controversy over aged care facilities has finally prompted me to do so.
As a family, we were anxious when the time came for my mother to enter an aged care facility as we had heard about, and indeed witnessed, some services that were quite substandard in the level of care they provided to their elderly residents.
However, the facilities and service provided at Florence Price have been wonderful.
The culture in your facility seems to encourage caring and respectful interactions with the residents. Everyone from gardeners, cleaners and clinical staff all know my mother's name and go out of their way to make her feel loved and included. When our large extended family and friends came together to celebrate her 99th birthday your staff could not have been more accommodating and allowed us to take over a part of your facility and fill it with flowers, many small children, lots of our food and beverages and of course lots of laughter. For this and for the care you have given my mother, my family cannot thank you all enough.
I just want to say how happy we are with the care our relative receives. We are truly blessed in Yass to have such excellent aged care facilities with Thomas Eccles Gardens, Horton House and Warmington.
It must be such a difficult time for all levels of staff at Thomas Eccles to see the reports and news as we have seen this week. When you all go the extra mile to deliver a compassionate, professional service to residents that you can be proud of it must be hard to fathom that other care facilities do not deliver that same high standard of care.
With our thanks for all you do.
One of the great things about living close to family is the opportunity for them to be a part of my life – my grandson Alex bugled The Last Post and The Rouse at our Remembrance Day Ceremony last year. It was a proud and touching moment for me.
Since moving in to Jonathan Rogers House I reconnected with an old friend, Keith. I hadn’t played the double bass for a number of years, but we both love music and entertaining so have formed a duo and greatly enjoy performing together. It’s very satisfying to be back in the swing of making music.
The best way I can describe RSL ANZAC Village is that it has a feeling of care that underpins the attitude and actions of our neighbours, our friends and the staff who are here to help us live life to the fullest. Since moving in, Frank and I have made wonderful friends and even coaxed others from the Blue Mountains to move here too! I am very involved in the Museum Committee, currently as Chairperson, and also in the Chapel where I organise the roster and enjoy the fellowship of all. I help in the library one afternoon a week, which is a pet love of mine. Life is busy and fun.
I enjoy my new home at Sanananda Park, I call it my private sanctuary! The lawns and garden maintenance are done for me, the garbage is put out and returned every week. I hated doing this job! Our morning teas and BBQs give a feeling of community and bring the residents together, it’s wonderful. The only thing I miss is my cat.
"Thank you for caring and for making my husband comfortable & the loving care you provided for him".
We want to thank you and acknowledge all the hard work you do, while managing to be so kind and loving to all your clients/patients. A huge thank you from my family for being so caring to our mum."
I would like to thank you for your assistance in getting Mum into a unit at Rowland Village.
From our very first meeting you've been extremely approachable and accommodating. You continued this right through the process to Mum's move-in day and I know you have had to assist her with a couple of things since.
Your approach to selling was what it should be. There was never any hard-sell; just helpful advice, transparency and support.
As I mentioned in our first interaction, I first became aware that Rowland Village may be an option for Mum when I was taking a resident there from Mt. Wilga (with my casual patient transport job). This resident was extremely happy and spoke very highly of the Village. I've got to say this theme has continued. We've met quite a number of residents along the way and they've all been very friendly and seemingly happy!
There's undoubtedly a lot of bad press these days about retirement villages but we always felt comfortable in dealing with RSL Lifecare and Murray McDermott!
RMVCG feels like home. I have had more hugs and kisses than one man needs, I can have hot milk on my Weetbix in the morning. I have friends here and the staff are like family to me. I am friendly to everybody and everybody is friendly to me.
Thanks to all the wonderful staff at Peter Sinclair Gardens for caring for me and my wife during her time living here.
I heard about John Edmondson VC Gardens through a nurse who was actually working part time here and she suggested I come and have a look at this beautiful new facility that had just opened so I took her advice. As they say “the rest is history” because here we are enjoying our new life in John Edmondson VC Gardens. The staff and the residents have been so lovely to John and I and I hope to be making new memories here with them. Right now I am crocheting a lap blanket with John’s Campbell clan tartan.
I have lived at the Doug & Olive McWilliam units for nine years and I love it here. I can always get together for a bit of a chat with other residents whilst hanging out the washing or doing a bit of gardening. Christmas time sees us having a small get together with a couple of platters and a little wine to celebrate, but mainly just to relax. I maintain my independence by driving to Lake Cargelligo to visit family or just a drive into town for groceries. It is very handy to have the bakery, newsagency, post office and chemist across the road and I often will pick up the papers for another resident. I am very happy here.
