I write to support and commend the care and services provided by Seaview Home of Picton owned by Jake and Donna Kreft.

My sisters and I have had both our parents cared for at Seaview Home, our mother for 1 year followed by our father for 4 years. Both have now passed away.

I have had many years of experience of dealing with residential care facilities including working in two in my younger days and as a former minister of Health and constituency MP.

The care provided to our parents was exceptional. I have not before witnessed or experienced the compassionate, professional and quality of service both our parents received.

The staff, lead by Donna and Jake are of the highest calibre with a genuine commitment to the care of the residents. Seaview provides a home away from home.

My sisters and I give our highest recommendation for Seaview Home.

Honourable Dame Annette King (DNZM)
