    My Dad came into Diggers 2 years ago. Diggers have been very caring. He loved the food , the staff and his room. It was a very positive experience for him. He came to Diggers at 93 when his health declined. I am glad I had the Care Manager and the staff to help & advise me throughout those 2 years. When he was passing the care staff were very compassionate, very supportive & capable in that final part of his life. I saw that what they do is not just a job. They really cared for my Dad. They were sad like me. Despite this they helped us both at that difficult time with their nursing skills and by knowing what to do. After all it was not familiar territory for me. I would recommend The Diggers aged care highly & with out any reservations.
