Good on you's St Andrews, my dad was there and he went out like a king! The girls were so good to him. He was always smiling which was something new for him.
Thank you you're heroes.

Dear Helen and all the team, Thank you so much for all you did for Mum and delivering my one and only message to her. Bless her, at least she didn't linger too long and had a peaceful end. You all do such a fantastic job at the nursing home and we as a family very much appreciated all your kindness and attention to Mum. Best wishes to you all.

To the management and staff of St Andrews, What wonderful concern and care mum received at St Andrews. She passed surrounded with love, massaged to the hilt and most importantly to her, in her room! What memories I take with me. 
Every visit to St Andrews was special, from the warm welcome from the girls at front of house, to the hello from staff as you walked the corridors (laundry and kitchen). Staff are a barometer of any organisation and to have 'a happy team' makes for a successful place - may St Andrews always be that special place. Thank you to each and everyone.

A big, big thank you to the wonderful staff of Hardwicke House for the care you gave mum during the five and a half years she spent there but especially for the extra mile you all went to keep her comfortable during the last weeks. Not only did you care for mum but you looked after me as well. Thank you. 
I am still adjusting to life without her but what special memories I have. a hug for each and every one of you.

I would like to thank all the office staff, and the staff that worked in Dianella Square who went out of the way to look after my late wife. For the very caring way they attended to her special needs and the comfort they gave her. And the personal help and support they gave to me was away and beyond the call of duty. I cannot thank them enough. St Andrews must be very proud to have such people working for them. I will be forever grateful to them. 
I would recommend Saint Andrews to anyone seeking professional and personal care. Many thanks.

What a beautiful facility. 
The little things that struck me was the cleanliness and homeliness of this facility. Unlike other places I have worked, staff seem proud of their facility and care for it and the residents as though this was their own home.
 I noticed the clean white towels and washers (cloth washers!!). The food that the residents are given is real food that comes from being cooked and served straight from the kitchen. 
Activities appear to be constant and of good quality.
 The manager DOCS, DDOCS - Neil and Lee are both very approachable and open to new ideas. Educator Cate and ACFI Coordinator Sharon are also very approachable and keen to consider different ideas or suggestions that might assist in improving the overall function of the facility and ensuring that it has a smooth transition into a highly regarded local business that can pass accreditation smoothly. 
The morning staff that I have worked with have been diligent in their roles and open to suggestion. there is a team atmosphere on the weekday morning shift.

I wish to express my deep gratitude for the care mum received while a resident at St Andrews. The dedication of the nursing and care staff could not be faulted. I am indebted to them for meeting mum's needs, especially in her final days. 
I also appreciate that I was kept fully informed and that any requests I made were dealt with in a timely manner. I was always made to feel I was an integral part of the team caring for Mum. 
The quiet and respectful manner in which Leisure and Lifestyle, Laundry and Cleaning staff interacted with mum made her twilight years the best they could have possibly been. Regards.

Well done to all the carers attending to my husband for the short time he was here. I felt the love given to my late husband and am happy that he had passed away in your care. Your attention to detail and personal care is to be commended.

I was amazed actually, its such a relief for me to know, over the next week I’ll bring things in for her to make the room hers. thanks again.
