    Where to start with this mess of a facility? Respect are a company designed to have the absolute bare minimum for the workers but expect everything in turn. Respect are a company that want to fill every bed to maximise their investments, despite there being no staff to accommodate for the current residents. Respect is a company designed to reduce every equation presented to them in the facilities they own so they can further increase their investments. respect as a company are exactly that, to do business. Not an aged care provider. Business. $$$
