"It's a happy place, very positive."

"My grandmother has made lots of progress since she's been there. She's making lots of friends and there's always heaps to do. The staff that look after her are really, really good. They get her up and put on her makeup and jewellery to make her feel happy and positive. They make her laugh which is nice to see as well. It's a happy place, very positive."

I sincerely thank you for the beautiful flowers that have just arrived, it was so kind of you and greatly appreciated. Many thanks to management and staff for the professional way Celily was cared for, she was very happy and grateful for all the help and assistance with her daily life. It was a great burden taken off our shoulders to know that Cecily had the greatest care 24/7. Would you please convey my gratefull thanks to all who assisted Cecily in any way. My daughter Stephanie joins me in expressions of gratitude for your dedication to a lovely lady.
Sincerely yours Peter Price (husband of Cecily)

To Phil, Jean, Tracey and the care staff of Graceland's
We are so very appreciative of the excellent care given to mum Jean Drummond in the short time she was with you.
We were impressed from our initial meeting with Phil who took the time with us even though he had finished work for the day. The call from Jean (Clinical manager)on saturday to explain the transfer process and right through the next week was appreciated.
The respect and dignity all staff gave mum and the thoughtfulness and consideration shown to us while we sat with her could not be faulted.
To all the nurses, carers, cleaners and cooks you are all wonderful, thank you.

Regards Pam Maclean and Bruce Drummond (November 2015)

Thank you to Gracelands rest Home.
Would just like to say a big thank you to Gracelands Rest Home management and staff. My mum passed away in the Rest Home a few weeks ago after being there for 15 months.
What a wonderful caring bunch of people, and to those staff who went beyond their normal duties to make my mums last days comfortable, and who made sure they looked after me also. I could not have got through this difficult time without their support. On behalf of my mum and myself,thank you so much, great bunch of people, couldn't have asked for more.
Gracelands is a wonderful home.

The staff and Viv Diversional Therapist at Graceland's have been wonderful to me, they have made me comfortable and made the transition into rest home care easier. The meals are very good and the staff are friendly, they greet my son well. My family and I love the memory lane journey that Viv DT made for me. Jenny RN at night has been very kind, thank you to everyone at Graceland's.
