My aunt was adamant that she was NOT going into an aged care facility. She now looks great! She has companions and enjoys being part of the daily activities. She refers to the facility as “home”. The staff are wonderful. They look after her beautifully and treat us as a family with care and advise us regularly what is going on and anything she needs. I am so glad that we as a family chose St Vincent’s Care.
