A Wall Of Thanks

The friendly care given by the nurses, carers and all staff at SCC North Turramurra is nothing short of exceptional. Although initially hesitant to reside in an aged care facility, my elderly mother now has the good fortune of feeling very much cared for and pleased to participate in the various interesting and fun activities provided by SCC. The building itself is more akin to a 5 star luxury hotel yet provides a level of comfortable homeliness appreciated by all. Our family is grateful that our much loved mother is in safe, friendly, reliable hands.


My family and I are so grateful to the team at South Coogee for the love and care they provide our mum. You are an amazing, compassionate, thoughtful, and considerate team of people. We could not do without you. The care you provide gives us more time with our loved ones and that is the biggest gift anyone can give. From all my family to you, WE THANK YOU and LOVE you with all our hearts. And to SCC - Well done!


"We are so grateful for your dedication and kindness. Mum always remarks on how kind all the staff are at Nagle. This past 18 months has been so tough on both staff and residents but you have soldiered on under difficult circumstances and we are so very thankful for the cheerfulness and care you have consistently shown the residents. Some days must seem really tiring and difficult, and some safety protocols may make life harder, but please know how much we appreciate all you are doing to care for and keep Mum safe. "


"To all at SCC, Be assured your hard work and dedication is appreciated in these difficult times but please let me remind you that it is a actually appreciated all the time. Thank you"


Thank you for the happy and thoughtful care of mum and dad. Our family is very grateful that we found such a caring aged care facility.


My gratitude goes to the special humans who care for the elderly. It is not an easy task they undertake but they maintain the quality of life of our most treasured relatives with their selfless compassion.


I would like to thank all the staff from Southern Cross Moama. The care they give my Mum is amazing. Due to my confidence in Mums care, we have been able to go on an extended trip away. I ring often to check how Mum is and always get a great update on how she is going. Thank you again, it means the world to me.


Words can not describe the gratitude we have for each and every one of you very special & hard working carers at the Southern Cross care Bombala. Your care, compassion and dedication is a credit to you all and we are blessed to have you caring for our loved ones. We sincerely THANK YOU all from the bottom of our heart. Angels!


To the wonderful staff at Reynolds Court - Bateau Bay, my family cannot thank you enough for the care and kindness that you show to my aunt Val. Times are extremely tough for everyone and not being able to come and visit puts more pressure on you all, we are so grateful that she is living in such a wonderful facility...Thanks again for your patience, kindness and just for everything that you do...we love you!


Our heartfelt "Thank You and gratitude" to the dedicated and caring staff of St. Michael's Casino for the compassion and care they show our loved family members each and every day. You are appreciated more than words can say.

To all the wonderful carers. I realise you have had a very busy time the past 18 months and I wish to thank you most sincerely for every minute of every day you provide loving care to our clients and families. So grateful!


I just wanted to take the time to say thankyou; to all the lovely people involved in caring for my mother, Josie at Cardinal Gilroy, Merrylands. With International , state and even suburban borders closed, it is so important that we recognise those workers who choose to take the place of a loved one in just taking time out to show some humility and understanding for those mum's and dad's in your care. You all deserve a medal.


A Giant Hug and a very big Thankyou to all the Staff At SCC Campbell for taking such good care of our Mum- Win, and all the other residents. Our family is very grateful for your love and commitment. XX


The carers for my Mum at St Joseph's South Tweed do a wonderful job, with a lot of them with their own families overseas, affectionately naming her "Mumma Jill" whilst we are interstate and with these trying times can't visit as much. I am so grateful for the love and care they offer her. Eternally grateful. x


A huge thank you to all the special people with the kindest of hearts who care for our loved ones. On behalf of my sister, Janine and I, a heartfelt thank you for caring for our Mum, Velma. It takes a special kind of person to do your job and please know that your care and consideration is very much appreciated, particularly during these difficult times we have been experiencing during the pandemic.
