Recently, John* contacted Resthaven to ‘commend your staff for their extra effort, and positive and caring manner’ in supporting his parents, who are ‘aged 90 and 94 years young’.
John says, ‘I am a senior airline pilot based overseas, and therefore Resthaven has been a key part of ensuring that my parents were well cared for, and more importantly, safe.’
‘Over these [four] years, there have been a number of critical times when my parents needed extra and urgent help, and your staff were always ready to step forward and assist.’
‘The Resthaven Western Community Services staff team are excellent; their compassion and personal interest in each of your clients ensure that everything is handled correctly.’
‘As of February this year, my parents entered into a nursing home, but their wishes were to remain in their own home as long as possible, which we were able to achieve together.’
‘Thank you, Resthaven!’
