Thank you

To Jane and all staff,
Just to formalize my feedback to you all.
After many years with both Maeroa Lodge and Kensington,
I am happy to inform you that my recent stay was terrific and enjoyable.
Why? Because I enjoyed participating in the daily activities and in particular the very friendly & helpful staff.
Cheers Paul Kurtich

My experience

I found the service at Kensington to be beyond reproach. The friendly caring staff looked after my relative with the utmost interest and care. They all knew my name, when I visited and were very approachable. The facilities were clean and tidy at all times, while providing a warm and care atmosphere. I have no hesitation in recommending this residential care facility and commend Jane Morgan on her competent organisation.

Located near the quiet suburb of Forest Lake, residents at Kensington benefit from easy access to the city.

The rooms are bright and cosy, a number of which have ensuites available, including showers.

Some rooms have private access to one of five enclosed courtyards, offering safe outdoor activities.

The hallways in the facility are wide and well-lit. The lounges provide a quiet and comfortable place for residents to relax.

Residents and families can enjoy a coffee at the popular Sugar Bowl Café just across the road.
