"Everything is terrific here, girls are excellent and we have a lot of fun. Having been in an empty house, there is always something going on here."

"I like sport - like to play bowls. Love all the entertainers. Enjoy men's group - its quite good and nice."

"We have been thrilled with the way our mother has been transitioned from a small rest home to a larger one. She seems more stimulated, less anxious. She comments on the friendly staff and always looks well groomed and relaxed. A recent chest infection was dealt with quickly and communication with the family was immediate."
