    Staff is incredibly rude, ignorant, malevolent and they do not care about the residents in need. Had a family member pass away after complete ignorance from an employee who failed to assist him when needed. Do yourselves a favour and send family members to better aged care facilities, this is the wrong place. Absolutely Pathetic. - KW

    Strongly incompetent. When the residents need their help the most, the workers just give up and ignore everyone's request for help. If you send your relatives here you're never seeing them again.
