    I’d like to express my thanks and appreciation to the staff at Highton Gardens in particular Shaun and Georgia. Their understanding, personal interest and time spent in helping support my mother at a difficult time was greatly appreciated.

    Transition into aged care at Highton Gardens Care Community has been a positive experience for my parents. Firstly starting as a trial with respite care then making the decision to stay permanently because of the caring supportive environment provided by all the staff. This home has a great culture where the residents well being is of the highest priority. Very happy family here

    The staff are good and the residence is presentable. However I have found in the past, my resident has been left in "medical isolation" with no working alarm, no doctors called and no observations overnight, dead flowers constantly left in their room, 6 bottles of shampoo missing, their mental health declining due to lack of interaction, ongoing issues with the hearing aide ie no batteries and even the wrong hearing aide and still in bed dressed in her pyjama's at 10.30am. I have now been advised due to awkward pressure from a family member, that improvements are being made. Though I was part of a "family" meeting, I was not at anytime updated regarding the issues discussed, though Management would have you believe in their response below, that I was. Not even after sending several emails to enquire, as mentioned I would do in the said meeting. Family wish to give this home the benefit of the doubt as "things have changed" and I sincerely hope this is the ongoing. What is disappointing and upsetting for me is I shall never be informed nor notified of any updates as I am not family. Excellent care is what this precious resident needs after being there for me for 40 years.
