    The respite care is run like a prison with almost no access to loved ones. Whoever decided to lockdown the place based on COVID has no empathy for the mental health of those in their care. Canberra has not had a COVID case in three months but these bureaucrats are inflexible.

    My Dad, who passed away recently spent his last 18 months here. Although the interior is a little tired in places, the care he received here was second to none. Not an easy man to please, Dad really enjoyed the food particularly 'fish and chip Friday' as it became known to his family and the roast chicken. He never once complained about the food or the wonderful carers or cleaning staff. With the covid 19 epidemic, the facility shut down before it became compulsory which made life difficult for Dad but was clearly the right thing to do. The treatment provided to Dad and our family members in his last days was caring and compassionate and we thank you all so very much.
