All staff have been wonderful towards my Mother. I thank you all. Thanks to Karlene for all the help when my Mother was first admitted. She has done a great job.
Relative
P. Stanford - Albion Park
We wanted to say thanks so much for helping my family. We are so incredibly happy with Ridgeview and the staff have been so kind to my Mum. It's been the worst time for us,but knowing she is being cared for has made things so much easier. My sister rang Mum last night and Mum said she didn't know where she was but the people were very kind to her. I know in time they will all become friends. We are so glad we found your Nursing Home.
Relative
Jenny Roya - Tasmania
A very special thank you to all the staff at Ridgeview Aged Care. A very special thanks to Rebecca, Adel and Kath who stayed with my Mother during her last stages of life. It was so comforting to know they were there. Also a very special thank you to Karlene for the help in transitioning my Mother to Ridgeview. I would gladly recommend Ridgeview to any of my family and friends as a lovely place to go at their time of need
Relative

I really enjoy being at Ridgeview, meeting and talking to new people, going to concerts and special events, crocheting at Knit n Natter and having a massage in the Tranquillity Spa!
