    Do not make the mistake of trusting your loved one to this disgusting place. My mother, Maria Vasilakis, died due to their gross negligence when Covid-19 spread through this place like wildfire. 45 residents died as a result of their negligence. St.Basil's Homes for the Aged in Victoria is owned by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese who only care about the $2 Million they collect in rent. Both the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the management of St.Basil's have shown just how incompetent and uncaring they are.

    My father Evangelos spent his last few years at St Basil's. He was well looked after by compassionate, skilled and friendly staff. He enjoyed the Greek cuisine cooked on the premises and as I enjoyed a few meals there myself I could honestly say it was delicious. Dad could speak and read English but was comforted by staff there that spoke Greek and understood his native culture. His room and surroundings were fastidiously clean at all times. When our 90 year old Dad was dying the staff were comforting, prepared meals for us for a few weeks and there was a staff member at his funeral. This COVID debacle at St Basil's is surprising to our family and so out of character to what we remember of Dad's stay there only a few years ago.

    A big thank you to the staff at this nursing home. The majority of the staff went above and beyond their requirements to care for the residents. Both mum and dad were there. The cleanliness of the place was amazing for such a large place. The food was appetising and plentiful. It was cooked on the premises which is a rarity. It is a shame DHHS and the media chose to stage and portray such lies. The staff did an amazing job. They worked so hard to keep it under control . Instead, the replacement staff that arrived ( Thursday 23/08) had informed my friend that her father had passed away with no compassion at all but an accusing tone in her voice. My friend had no correspondence from them, they weren't answering the calls so she had no updates whatsoever. The only call made was he has passed and with her shock, the worker had asked her which funeral service to use and when she didn't have an answer , the reply she got was what do you mean why aren"t you prepared. Where is the Compassion???? We are talking about real people, feelings that will stay with the family and loved ones forever. DON'T TURN THIS INTO A MEDIA CIRCUS AND LET THE STAFF DO THIER JOB, DHHS YOU SHOULD BE THERE TO HELP THEM NOT BELITTLE THEIR HARD WORK. Once again, thank you St. Basil staff for your outstanding work and dedication. Marko and Rosa MILOS would surely agree. :)
