We want to extend our heartfelt thank you to all the staff including kitchen, leisure and lifestyle team, care team, physiotherapists, volunteers… the list goes on, and there are far too many to name individually. We, as her family found on visiting that everyone was warm and friendly and very welcoming.

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.

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. Thankyou you’re heroes’

Dear Pip, I did not get a chance to talk to you in October when mum passed away but now want to thank you for all your help and support with mum over the last 2 or so years. My bothers and I greatly appreciate what you and the staff at St Andrews did for mum in her failing years and you gave her a quality of life we could not have achieved by ourselves. We cannot speak highly enough of the standards at St Andrews and if you need anyone to vouch for you in this regard please feel free to call on us. Thanks again mate for all you have done and have a good Christmas and hopefully a prosperous New Year.

To the staff of Boronia & Lifestyle, Thank you all for your wonderful care of mum. We very much appreciate your patience and compassion, especially through some ‘challenging’ moments. Her life was certainly much better than it would otherwise have been, due to all of your efforts. (I’m sure you will miss her singing and requests for “scissors”!!)

To all the staff, Here at St Andrew’s who cared for, assisted, or looked after Jim during his stay here. I also wish to give our thanks to all those who loved Jim and made his life ‘Happiest’ in his final 9 months. He really loved it here and for that – our family is truly grateful.
