    Very caring and well run. Mother quickly settled there after not being happy changing residence initially. She's 92 and suffers from dementia. Highly recommend due to caring staff and homely environment.

    I moved my mother to Clarendon Grange 6 months ago and cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful, professional, warm and inclusive care and attention she receives on a daily basis. The lifestyle staff have literally changed Mum’s life with their strong focus on reducing social isolation and their consistent encouragement and enthusiasm. The nursing staff and PCA’s treat Mum like a family member and I experience the most wonderfully warm and inclusive welcome every time I visit her. The most heartwarming experience is hearing her say how much she loves it.... I have had family members in 4 Melbourne based care facilities in the past and none of them come close to replicating that of this beautiful home. It is a very special place and I will be forever grateful that I found it - my ...

    My mother has recently had six weeks of respite here. The care provided was excellent. This is a small facility which contributes strongly to the warmth, homey feeling and friendliness experienced here. Staff picked up a long standing low-grade infection for which my mother was successfully treated. She was warmly welcomed when she arrived and made some lovely new friends. We were anxious about how this respite period would go, but it was an entirely positive time thanks to the staff and residents here. This is not a salubrious building. It is more like a home than a hotel which we love.

    From my first visit, on behalf of my mother, I was very impressed firstly by the staff who are genuinely friendly with other staff and residents and the place itself well maintained and clean. My wife and my sister who both work in aged care were equally impressed by Clarendon Grange for the same reasons. I am not 70 years old and in a retirement village in Ringwood and we instructed our family and central management that we want to enter Clarendon Grange when necessary.

    Putting my mum into this facility was one of the hardest things I have ever done, the staff and the facility made it so much easier. Thank you.

    Wonderful facility with dedicated staff that care for our mum as if she were their own mother. Only down fall a few months ago mum had participated in a fundraiser to raise money for a new public television and has since been told the company have decided not to put in the rest of the money for the purchase which left mum disappointed. That is my only fault and besides that the food, facility, rooms and garden are great and as others have said a home away from home.

    Staff set out to make it like home. When you first arrive they make you feel most welcome. They do a hard job well. I think it is good that this facility is limited to 50 residents. Others I have seen are cold and institution like. The public should be told what is available so that when they have to decide what is available, they have facts to consider.

    My mum has been here for over 3 years. During this time there have been many staff changes which is a shame - I know this happens in many facilities of this kind. When staff change there is a period of learning for all the staff to get to know the residents. During this learning period the quality of service to the residents drops. It is inevitable. Keeping staff consistent would help a lot, but realise this can't be helped - I just wanted to let you know it is noticeable for everyone. We love the fact that this is a smaller, compact facility all in one level. The quirky garden is also beautiful.

    My friend went to live in care at Clarendon Grange and over 2 years I participated in special meals or times in support of my friend. I visited Clarendon on an average of twice a week during the past 2 years. I watched all the staff as they cared for my friend. The care the nursing staff showed her was professional and caring. The domestic staff polite and efficient. The meals not only smelt good, but tasty, varied and nutritious. The home was very well cared for, clean and fresh smelling. The receptionist was always polite to residents and visitors alike. My friend died on 24/12/2015 at home in her own bed at Clarendon. Over the months of her declining health, I watched the nursing stuff give even more of themselves in the professional care of her. Her last days were made comfortable by ...

    This is a small facility (47 residents) which means family members know the staff and vice versa - this is a very good thing. The activities coordinator is wonderful - better than best. Creative, imaginative outings, knows every resident well and plans according to their needs and likes. The place is friendly and homey. It is not new or grand looking facility; residents' rooms look like normal homey bedrooms rather than hotel or hospital rooms. There is a central garden courtyard, visible from all the corridors and it looks like a garden - shady trees, bright flowers, bbq, seats - lovely. Problems: someone (bureaucrat) decreed that residents must take their entire Webster packs of medication with them when they go out, rather than a discrete small pack of the day's pills. This is wrong ...

    I feel the overall care has gone downhill in the recent past. They appear to be understaffed, which reflects residents needs are not always met. I also think air conditioners should be installed, not just heating. When my mother went into care two and a half year ago, I could not fault anything. For example, a free weeks ago, I washed mum's water glass and when I tipped out the water to wash it, the inside of the glass was slimy. Using a tissue I noticed that the bottom of the glass was yellow. Disgusting! I don't know if her water jug is ever changed with a clean jug or fresh water daily. The glass is certainly not.

    Beautiful facility. Staff are lovely and are all encouraging. Family members are always welcome to come and visit. They celebrate everything and encourage residents to go out and participate in in house activities. Nan recently moved in and the transition was smooth.

    I am the daughter of a resident who moved into Clarendon Grange, Bayswater last year. I just wanted to let potential residents and their families know what an outstanding job the team does there. My mother was adamant for many years she was not leaving her home. However due to increasing frailty this was becoming a problem. We were fortunate enough to finally convince her to go into respite at Clarendon Grange. When the respite period ended she went home for only a few days before missing everyone and the care she received and wanting to go back. Within a few days she was comfortably set up in her own room and has been the happiest she has been in a long time. I have to say it was a very emotional time trying to encourage mum to consider leaving the home she had built ...

    My mother moved to Clarendon Grange at Bayswater almost 12 months ago and absolutely loves it. When I first visited the facility to enquire I thought it was a little bit dated but the overall feel of homeliness hit me the minute I walked in the door. Even on the phone, I didn't need to make an appointment. The clue here was come in any time. The Director of Nursing introduced me to everyone from Kitchen Staff to Nurses on Duty. I was even asked what her favourite foods were. Since she moved in over a year ago she has improved in her overall health and the stress that it has removed from me getting the phonecalls in the middle of the night and trips to the hospital has made everyone's life better. Nothing is a bother and special occasions are always celebrated. When she first moved ...

    Clarendon Grange provide an outstanding quality of care for my mother. The entire staff create an atmosphere of care and friendliness and have made it a 'home' rather than an aged care facility. Trying to find your way through the complex aged care system to the right facility for your relative is very challenging, we were so lucky to find Clarendon Grange.

    Making the decision to place my mother in care was a hard decision to make. Clarendon grange was a respite place but we liked it so much, my mother stayed. An excellent facility. Staff are like family and genuinely care about the residents from the manager, nursing staff, kitchen staff, reception, support staff. They all smile and treat residents with care, compassion and dignity.
