    My mother has been in Sclabrini Drummoyne for 2 years, she is wheel chair bound and has dementia. My family is extremely happy with the care that my mother is receiving, especially the pastoral care and the care regarding her physical needs. She and the other residents are always dressed (and not sitting in pyjamas), the hair is washed and attended to, they all are wearing shoes. These things that we take for granted in our everyday life are so important, the residents are treated with dignity and respect. the staff know all residents by name. Physical touch such as holding the hands or shoulder when a resident is upset or confused, is lovely to see, aswell as the tone of voice used to comfort the residents. Again, small things but very respectful . The recent renovation of the facility ...

    The staff at Scalabrini Drummoyne were extremely patient, accommodating and caring for my father, who was resident with them for about 4 years. He was not the easiest person in the world to keep happy.

    My mother had a few months stay as a respite situation following my father's death 6 months prior. Mom has dementia and was very reliant on dad. At home she was 'lost' not eating, sleeping all the time and became lonely. Initially her admission was scary for her - the staff were very welcoming and nurturing towards her and also to myself and brother and sister. Over the next few months she settled in well, the staff have been very loving and caring toward her and us. They have enabled partnering together to look after mum and her care, medical treatment and way in which they keep her safe as she has many falls. They have looked at different ways to minimise falls, listening to us (her family) as to what her needs are and now best to help her. As Italian is not her native tongue, the staff ...

    I have found that recently the facility has improved significantly in terms of the attitude of staff, the treatment of patrons and the table and food seating give a new level of dignity to those that live and visit Scalabrini Village.

    There is nothing like home but if you had to go to a nursing home you have to adopt their lifestyle and try to enjoy. My dad was at Scalabrini nursing home for 8 1/2 years and i think at the end he was well looked after otherwise he wouldn't have lasted all those years. At the end of the day everywhere you go you have a dedicated staff and others its only a job (but that's everywhere). Now I have my mother she has been there for 8 months, new village manager lots of changes and just hope for the best but we all want the best for our parents because we pay a lot of money.

    Scalabrini Drummoyne is a good aged care facility. I had a number of family members there including my father fora number of years. I have been very happy with the care they give them.

    Scalabrini staff and management have been extremely caring, patient and flexible towards my father for several years and very patient and cooperative with me regarding my frequent requests to modify the ways in which my father was being cared for. The only shortcoming, at times, was the lack of formal 'case management' system such that one staff member has oversight of everything regarding a resident.

    The atmosphere at this facility has recently declined to such a degree staff are stating they are leaving due to this, this is effecting the interaction between the residents and at times its like the south pole, cold! Management need to address this as a major concern

    Overall, the facility and staff are very good. I have found the attention to my father's comfort is at times lacking. At my visits I have found the emergency call apparatus not functioning or not attached to the wall socket. The cleanliness of the floor is poor (this is predominantly on weekends). There are traces of urine under my father's bed and surrounding floor area "sticky" under foot. I would like to receive regular communication on my father's health - I understand there are week day information, but due to work commitments I am unable to attend. I have requested weekend meeting, but I have received no response for this.

    The staff seem very happy and cooperate well with each other. They therefore have the energy willingness to work more with the residents. The place has an overall nice, positive feel.

    The address of Scalabrini Village at Drummoyne is the enviable position of the Sydney community. 1A Lyons Rd, Drummoyne. The building not very modern for today's standard, but well maintained, with a very caring staff.

    Main concern being the food even though this has improved recently. Laundry: there is nowhere to place dirty clothing i.e. wash basket. Staff are very good with the odd few (especially over the holiday period) who are quite dispassionate. More activities could be arranged - I believe this is now being addressed. Overall it is a good aged care facility and in some case people are not easily pleased no matter what you do!

    Scalabrini Village Drummoyne is in a very nice location, staff are friendly but they are too busy to care for all patients. Due to this, neglect is a major factor. We have found when we visit dad they are helpful and give their best, but when we are not there, dad is waiting for assistance and sometimes waiting more than an hour for someone to come and assist him to the toilet as he cannot walk. He also develops a lot of sores due to bumps and we only found out after an infection has formed and needs hospitalisation. The room he is in is not always cleaned daily and his bathroom is also not cleaned on a daily basis, which is very disappointing. (Family have cleaned bathroom while we are there).

    On many occasions I have commended the staff for their care and attention they show my father. They are very special people. Unfortunately, there are (few) who spoil it for the rest of the staff. The only comment I would make that is not positive is that there are not very many activities in weekends for the residents. On the whole, we are pleased with the care our father is receiving.

    Given my mother's poor health and temperament, the staff are really good to her. The only complaint I have is they often lose some of her expensive cardigans. Food quality is pretty good, but maybe the cordial is not my favourite drink. They have lots of activities and games for the residents. The rooms are clean as is the rest of the building and family are always welcome.
