My partner was recently in respite care for six weeks at Steele Park, Hamilton. Both of us were delighted with the level of professionalism shown by staff, from the cleaners to the managers. Problems were addressed as promptly as was practicable. The nursing staff were skilled and managed to get round the residents despite periodic unavoidable staff shortages. The carers were efficient and always ready to help, invariably with a smile and friendly word. The cleaning staff kept the whole building spotless and went the extra mile to ensure that any spills were speedily mopped up and the area sanitised. COVID protocols were in place for the protection of residents. And if this were not enough, the meals supplied were fit for an upmarket hotel - all kudos to the chef! I would be happy to recommend Steele Park to anyone in need of quality residential care.

Special Features
Steele Park Home is part of Sound Care Group. Owner and Director, Carly Mangulabnan started in 2016 with the first care facility she owned and managed. Since then with almost nothing but sheer faith and hard work the group has grown to five facilities throughout New Zealand.

Carly says, "When a resident tells us the food tastes as good as it looks, or when a family sends me a note thanking us for making mum's birthday extra special, or when a resident sends me a handwritten poem about how much they treasure their friendship with our staff, I know in my heart we're doing something right. I also know we can still improve."
