Orewa Secure Care was our first choice; it has everything we required , caring professional staff and a great atmosphere. Our very first impression was “this feels just like home”. The kindness and caring shown to all your residents is an inspiration, we can not speak too highly of it.’ - New residents family

‘Of all the care facilities we inspected Orewa Secure Care stood out as far as we were all concerned. All your staff have gone out of their way to make the whole family feel welcome which has been very much appreciated. Congratulations on having such a delightful home and such wonderful caring staff’ - new admission

To all the fantastic staff at OSC. Thankyou for making everything as happy as possible for my mum. I really appreciate everything you do for her. -

On behalf of the family I would like to thank you and your staff for being so caring to June. The friendly personal environment you provided was special to us and so well supported with your compassionate staff. June was treated with dignity and kindness by them all as if she was their mother. We found the staff to have a wonderful sense of humor and warm relationships with all the residents.

Once again thank you for the caring of June in the professional manner you did and will remember with fondness the time she had with you all

Just a note to say what a marvellous job you are doing . I realise it's never easy coming in to an existing business and keeping residents and staff happy.I thought previous owners' footsteps would be hard to follow ,for anyone, but that hasn't been the case.My aunt is better groomed and seems more stimulated as she has time in the lounge.I love the way the staff chat and engage with me and others in the lounge.Also I find the whole home has a much more organised and calm feel.So a big thank you to all but especially you Lydia as it comes from the top.

Just felt I had to let you know how we as a family are so pleased with the care mum is getting. Every one of your team treats each and every patient with the utmost respect and dignity mixed with such warm caring loving natures. It was a wonderful moment watching mum feed another resident her dinner and desert. The pair of them chatting away talking about god knows what. What a character. I left smiling from ear to ear. Haven't felt this happy in a long long time. If there was ever a home away from home, mum has found it. What more could we ever ask for. Thanks again.
