Aged care staff making a difference

The feedback received from families about the wonderful impact Churches of Christ aged care service makes on the lives of loved ones and their families is precious. Their stories demonstrate how staff and volunteers make people feel welcome and experience a sense of home and community and foster wellbeing. Below is one family’s story letter of appreciation.

Dear Adriana

We want to let you know our heartfelt gratitude to you and each and every one of your staff.

During the past five weeks for Tony here with you all, we have greatly appreciated the wonderful help, love and kindness.

Every stage of Tony’s “coming into care’ process has provided for our needs in beautiful, outstanding ways.

From thoughtful preadmission guidance, through welcoming understanding admission, settling in, and constant, loving, attentive ongoing care – there have been Blessings we have seen – day after day.

The meals are greatly enjoyed, nutritious, varied and ideal portions served with such kindly staff.

What joy they gave with special touches to celebrate his birthday.

The constant, cheerful, watchful provision day and night is profoundly comforting.

We are so glad of Dr T, the lovely nurses, and Danny the physiotherapist’s excellent and dedicated care.

Tony delights in his pleasant, sunny room, with all of its comforts and dear ones who come to keep it so clean and nice.

It’s so lovely the feeling of ‘being at home and belonging’ for him and also for me and family as we come to visit.

We see and experience God’s amazing grace working in and through you all, and we thank him so much for each of you.

Much love

Tony and Beulah Gilligan
