    Worked as agency nurse, so glad that I met staff who were ready to help and communicate being team worker. My special thanks to " Rachel". I did my first shift there and few more and still counting for more. She is always helpful and always answer to all my queries and questions.

    I am very happy with the care my Mum has received at Bluecross Glengowrie. 2021 update: Mum has been at Glengowrie Bluecross for more than three years. The facility is well maintained and the staff are great. My only minor gripe is parking can be tight, however there is a portico for quick pickup and drop offs.
