Resident Testimonials

"I got to know many of the nurses and staff. While I may forget their names, I will never forget their care."

- Wal, resident

"I was so fortunate to get a bed at Amaroo. It was a huge relief for my sister and all my family to know that I was safe and being very looked after."

- Brian, resident at Amaroo Residential Aged Care

"Fair Haven has a very homey feel but at the same time there is a real sense of community because the fantastic staff and my marvellous neighbours, many of whom have become good friends, are all so friendly and supportive."

- Betty

"The staff are exceptional and always smiling, which makes for a really happy vibe. I think the key is mutual respect. They make you feel at home and look after you like family. There is a real sense of belonging. It’s been like that since the day we moved in – they had a welcome card and flowers waiting for us."

- Margaret

"The atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is there for each other and the staff are first class throughout. It’s not what people think it’s going to be. They encourage you to be active and independent, and to do the things you enjoy. We have a great social life here."

- Alan, resident

 

Meet our team

Team Testimonials

“Our team works together in an exceptional way to transform the lives of our residents. From our nurses, carers, lifestyle therapists and my role as physiotherapist, we help residents be motivated and happy, with a level of independence they often don’t imagine when they arrive.

I think this attitude of promoting maximum possible enjoyment of life is what keeps me loving my work!”

- Delma Glinderman, Physiotherapist at Lady Small Haven Aged Care Service

 

"We see ourselves as a family who all share love, laughter and life. We allow and celebrate each other's unique contribution - our strength and weaknesses - so we can all grow and be excited by the journey.

I am very proud of what the team have been able to a achieve, creating a positive Christian environment where we are able to shine the light of Christ into our community."

- Shirley, Service Manager at Bribie Island Aged Care Service

"I like my role as a coordinator as I have the chance to communicate with residents on a daily basis - I feel it's important to always make time to listen to them."

- Marje McGrath, Clinical Nurse at Moonah Park Aged Care Service

 

"People should feel at home in their community. To feel at home means our clients and staff have the freedom to be who they are, to live in an environment of acceptance, to know that they belong.  To belong, you have to be missed, and when you are missed you are welcomed home. That contributes to the vibe that is experienced by our clients and staff everyday, with whom I am proud to do life with."

- Bryan Mason, Director - Seniors and Supported Living

 

"I love my job! This year has been particularly great, as we have shared in the celebrations of a resident who turned 101, and another resident who turned 102!

I get to work with amazing residents, share their stories and reminisce about their lives. I’m also able to introduce them to new things such as technology and go out to lunch every other week."

- Linda Chapman, Lifestyle Therapist at Marana Gardens Aged Care Service
