Very happy with the care

A huge thank you

A huge THANKYOU to you wonderful kind and caring people that, each day, turn up and do your best to assist our loved ones. In daily care, activities to keep them interested, and those who spend some extra time just to have a chat. You are truly appreciated 💜 Adrienne Wilkie Betty's daughter

Mighty efforts

Garden Village appreciates the magnificent care, support and dedication our Nursing and Care Team provides to the special Residents entrusted in our care. This wonderful 24/7 care and support delivered by our exceptional Nurse, Carers and the entire GV support Team was at the forefront and demonstrated so brilliantly during the Covid 19 pandemic. Congratulations and thank you for your mighty efforts.

Stand out team

There are a few stand out staff in Westerweller that I must thank, commend and applaud...Chom for her enthusiasm, her bright cheery personality who goes way above and beyond her duties. Her respect and care for my mother is shown by little things like putting on some lipstick, and perfume, and cheering her up if she’s feeling a little ‘blue’. Luke who is always available to help, will go out of his way to assist if there is any issues and in general, is a kind, calm and caring person. Bec, bubbly and bright, always has a chat and will do whatever it takes to ensure Mum’s needs are being met. She loves her job and it shows. Daniel is always helpful, respectful and nothing is too much trouble. There are many other staff (but I can’t remember their names) that have also cared for and shown kindness for which we are very appreciative. Adrienne Wilkie

Quick helpful nurse call

When we have a nurse call she assesses whether we should just take a panadol or go and see a doctor that is very helpful. If we call a nurse she arrives rapidly. Thank you.

Frank and Patricia Urban

Well looked after

I would really like to express my thoughts of gratitude to the amazing staff at Garden Village on the care and support they provide to my mother every day. She is so well looked after and I feel that I never have to worry about any part of her care. Mum is living her best life. Thank you again to each and everyone of you.

Staff go the extra mile

Many thanks to the nursing staff and all employees at Garden Village. My wife Janice is one of the Residents in the Lodge. The care and understanding of all staff is very impressive and appreciated. I have nothing but praise for the way my wife and other Residents are being cared for. Staff go the extra mile to ensure the comfort and well being of Residents. Staff carry out their duties in a friendly and efficient manner which is very much appreciated. All areas are spotlessly clean and hygienic and the food provided is of high quality. I take comfort in knowing that my wife and other residents are in excellent care. Thank you Garden Village.

Dedicated, kind and patient

There are no words special enough to describe all the staff at Garden Village and in particular those who work in Westerweller caring for my mum Ursula. You are all so dedicated, tireless, understanding, patient, kind, and considerate. You all give so much of your selves in a setting so challenging. You allow my mum dignity at the sunset of her life. Thank you all for everything.

Heart warming

Watching the engagement and connectivity between residents and their carers when they visit our op shop for a chat is truely heartwarming and makes me proud to be a part of the Garden Village community. To all our caring staff- Happy International Nurses Day.

Cheryl Pearson

Great job

My family live in Queensland but they are comforted knowing that I am safe and if I become unwell I will be looked after. The nurses all do a great job.

Dianne Stark

Bring a smile to her face

Living almost 3 hours away from Mum knowing she is being cared for makes the separation easier. The nursing staff and care givers bring a smile to her face and look out for her welfare on a daily basis. I love that they enjoy her humour and can also use humour when tending her. For this I sincerely thank you.

Fiona Johnson

Happy and helpful

The nurses make sure my blood pressure is checked weekly and that I am healthy. They are always there when I need them and are all happy and helpful.
