Thanks for the professional and compassionate care you gave my dad. I am so grateful to have found The Waratah, dad was so well looked after. I have warm fuzzy feelings when i think of The Waratah.

Thank you for caring and extending your aroha to our dad. He is our treasure and knowing he is in good hands is a massive comfort to us. Thanks for your efforts and friendship shown to dad. All our sincere thanks and gratitude to you all.

With much gratitude and love - a message sent to The Waratah along with 60 long stem individually wrapped roses - one for each staff member.

I love it at The Waratah the girls are so lovely, nothing is too much trouble for them.

I have worked at The Waratah for 12 years, wonderful team to work with and nice atmosphere to work in.
