Testimonials
Testimonials
In early December last, my late father was transferred to Taupaki Gables from the North Shore Hospital's intensive care ward. He had various health issues and required palliative care. Dad passed away on Christmas Day.

My mother was extremely impressed with the overall care given to him despite the short duration of his stay. The staff quickly gained his confidence and started getting him interested in meeting other residents and going on outings. Then, when his health deteriorated again, all of the staff went out of their way to make my mother and other members of our family welcome and comfortable during the hours that we spent at his bedside before he passed away.

In particular, she cannot speak too highly of the kindness and compassion extended to all of us during my father's final hours. It was very clear to us that all of the staff really care about the residents and were almost as sad as we were at his passing.

One of the reasons that my father wanted to be placed at Taupaki Gables was as a result of hearing very good reports about the Home. This was reinforced when, on our first visit, my mother in particular, was very impressed with the homely atmosphere and the obvious interest the staff have in their residents. She will have no hesitation in recommending Taupaki Gables to anyone in need of residential care.
