Dear Kerry, On behalf of my mother and family I would like to take this opportunity to give many thanks to you and the dedicated staff at Maranatha for the wonderful service given. We are truly humbled by the care and compassion shown to mum, who has settled well into her new environment. One of the hardest decisions we have had to make for mum was to find her a cared living arrangement that we felt could advantage her. We wanted somewhere she could be as independent as possible in a shared situation and most of all where she could be happy. After visiting several other Aged Care Facilities we came to Maranatha. I can honestly say from the very first visit, to be welcomed by you, it was clear that this was what we were looking for. This became more apparent as we were shown around. The warmth, empathy and understanding of the situation that we felt through that first meeting was so reassuring .There was no question that this was what we wanted for mum, a facility presenting with a warm homely feeling and busy atmosphere. The move for mum has given her the opportunity to become socially involved with others and with the gentle sensitive encouragement has seen her become involved in all areas at Maranatha. The attentiveness of the staff is outstanding and the genuine concern makes it feel like family. Placing our mother in care has been a huge emotional event for our family but made so comfortable by all staff who have made themselves available to answer our queries or concerns. From the moment mum arrived she was made to feel very welcome and special. Thanks again to all the wonderful staff of Maranatha.
