Dear Patricia & Staff,
I wanted to thank you and your staff for the care they took of my mother Bet.

My sister-in-law and I looked at a number of facilities to ensure we chose the best one for Mum and Ellerslie Gardens Home & Hospital appealed to us straight away.

There was a nice homely atmosphere which we felt as soon as we walked in and the way you were able to address residents by name, and their reaction to you, was another factor that really impressed us.

The loving care from all the wonderful staff who looked after her needs were exceptional. They treated her like one would treat a family member and nothing was too much trouble for them.

In her last days they did everything they could to keep her as comfortable as possible and to ensure that she didn't suffer any pain. They regularly checked in on her to see if there was anything they could do as they were aware that she didn't like to bother people and take up their time. She was happy at Ellerslie Gardens and had some good times in the garden, at Happy Hour and having chats with your staff. She also valued the fact that people treated her with respect and took the time to listen to her replies when asking questions which is something that doesn't always happen elsewhere.

Staff showed care and compassion to me too on occasions when I was upset which I really appreciated, and they were always happy to help me with any questions I had or requests I made.

I have heard some horror stories relating to Aged Care homes and hospitals, more so since I returned home, so I will always be grateful for and take comfort from the decision we made for Mum to move into Ellerslie Gardens Home & Hospital.

Once again, thank you to you and your staff. I really appreciate everything you all did for Mum.

Dear Patricia & Staff,

The MIller Family would like to thank all the staff for their outstanding care of our dear father while he was a resident at Ellerslie Gardens.

We would especially like to thank you for the love and care you showed to him and ourselves in the last two weeks before his passing. Nothing was too much trouble and you were all so kind and helpful towards Dad and ourselves.

We will have no hesitation in recommending Ellerslie Gardens to anyone who is considering a home for their elderly loved ones.

- The Miller Family

Dear Patricia and staff,

I'd like to thank you all for looking after my Aunty Stella during her stay with you. I am especially grateful and very much appreciate the love, respect and support she received not only duirng her last weeks but for her entire stay; it was a comfort to know she was being well cared for. I'd also like to thank youfor the love and support you showed me while I wandered in and out at odd times.

I take my hat off to all of you with the greatest respect for the work you do in caring for our elderly. I will miss seeing you all including the folk Aunty Stella shared her home with.

Once again, my heartfelt thanks to everyone and I wish you all the best for the future.

- Cherie Hartwell
