Mein Vater lebt seit einigen Monaten in IRT Woodlands. Ich selbst lebe in Deutschland und war in den letzten Wochen in Australien. In dieser Zeit habe ich meinen Vater oft besucht. Meine Erfahrungen mit dort waren alle ausgesprochen positiv. Alle Mitarbeiter, denen ich begegnet bin waren sehr freundlich und immer darauf bedacht, den Bewohnern und auch den Besuchern den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Besonders Colleen und Scott möchte ich für die Gespräche danken, die wir während meiner Besuche dort geführt haben. Ich bin sehr froh, dass mein Vater in IRT Woodlands so gut aufgehoben ist.

My father recently chose to enter into care at IRT Woodlands following advice from his doctors and specialists, as well as from the respite centre he attended previously. He feels so well looked after and cared for by the staff. The facility is fantastic and modern, with events and activities planned for residents, many of which my father regularly enjoys. All the staff my family and I have encountered when visiting him have been wonderful: friendly, helpful and communicative. We have met with Colleen, Belinda and other staff, and found them to be open, and communicative, and giving highest priority to the wellbeing of their residents. IRT Woodlands, both facility and staff are well deserving of a 5 star rating.

RE: Resident Pat Lane, posted for StephenOn the 6th May, I visited my sister who is a resident at Sarah Claydon, Milton. After travelling from Tasmania for the visit, I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and quality of the centre. I found the staff were friendly, helpful and caring towards the residents. In particular we were welcomed and assisted by nurse Sandra who was very helpful and kind to us. I left the centre contented that my sister was in good care. Written by Stephen

The genuine kindness and thoughtfulness of Sans Souci Gardens RNs & carers are far beyond professional service. The care manager took her RNs to learn new caring skills from the hospital in order to serve the special needs for our loved one. From the time our loved one moved in, until he passed away, there were so many times they took extra mile to care him as their resident, as well as us in our visiting time. They gave us the true family sense.We will always remember each of you though we won’t mention your names here. When it comes to my turn, I know where to find my care — lovely SSG staffs, stay forever young!
