I would like to wholeheartedly pass on my sincere warm thanks to all concerned for the first class care that has been given to me since residing here in this "Rest Home." I appreciate the way everyone here have shown a loving and happy aptitude towards me, and hope ti will remain that way forever in providing harmony to the home.
God bless all,

I feel I must thank you all for your kindness and attention during my recent "bout of sickness" - without a doubt I couldn't have coped without you. Obviously this is my first (and only) experience of living in this environment and I must say I have been more than pleasantly surprised at the dedication and care shown by all of you. So thank you again for all your efforts in keeping us residents happy and content!
Sincerely, Louisa

My husband and I enjoyed our time immensely with you and would not hesitate in returning if necessary. In fact I thought it was a mini holiday for me after my knee surgery. Am finding it hard getting back into the old routine!!!
Thanks again.

We can't thank you enough for all the care and love you have shown to our beloved mother, Joyce. She very much enjoyed her time as a resident at Fraser Manor during the past 18 months and the friendships she made.

To each one of you thank you.

I wish to thank you all for your love and care for Mum during her final years. It was always a great comfort to return to Auckland knowing she was in safe hands.
Best wishes to you all.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the opportunity of working at Fraser Manor. I have absolutely loved being a part of the team here. So many of you made me feel so welcome and a part of the family since day one. I am beyond grateful for all the time that has been invested in teaching me skills that will last forever. Through working at Fraser Manor I have learnt to care for others with such a compassionate heart, just as the caregivers here have demonstrated to me. I wish you all the best for the upcoming year.

My mother, who was in her nineties, lived at Fraser Manor Rest Home, Fraser Street, Tauranga for 18 months, until her recent death.

She entered Rest Home care late in life so we were very concerned about how she would cope. It was a huge change for her and happened quickly due to failing physical health. Initially we saw Fraser Manor as respite until she could be moved nearer to us.

Fraser Manor was recommended to us by an ambulance Paramedic whose grandmother was a resident there. Without this recommendation we may not have given it a second look. And we are so very glad and grateful that we did.

If you are looking for accommodation that is modern, with all the latest mod cons then Fraser Manor is not for your loved one. But if you are looking for a 'family' atmosphere' that is caring, supportive and totally professional then we would suggest you make a visit or phone call. From the moment we first made contact with Scott and his staff, they were welcoming, transparent and attentive. More importantly, they helped Mum feel at home from the first moment she entered the residence. She enjoyed the activities, the entertainment, those extra special celebrated events , the variety in meals and the positive interactions with the carers. This level of exceptional care remained until Mum's death.

I have to admit that I did look at other places nearer to us but they could not match the level of aged care shown at Fraser Manor. And Mum herself decided that she did not want to move either - this was her new family.

Scott is a hands-on owner and the staff and both residents and families love his personal approach. Nothing is too much trouble. We found it comforting to know that he is very aware of what is happening within the home and makes himself accessible to families when they need to communicate with him. We liked the fact that he knew how Mum was doing at any given time.

It gives us great pleasure to highly recommend Fraser Manor Rest Home as a safe, family-type environment for any elderly loved one.

Thank you very much for your kindness shown to our Mum during her 16 months as a resident at Fraser Manor.

We know our Mum enjoyed her time as a guest - from breakfast in bed, attention and excellent care during her time with you and especially the entertainment sessions, thoroughly enjoyable meals and baking, even Birthday Cakes!

The staff, too numerous to mention whom Mum knew by name, were great at her bedside and she took an interest in each one. I could go on and on.... Mum chatted away about how kind the staff were to her.

A big thank you from the family, especially in the later stages when Mum was in her "Special Hospital Bed", (her words).
