Think about this before you move into Maroba’s aged care community:

red-carpetDay One for all our new arrivals is a red-carpet day celebration, so we think it’s a great idea to have a look around before the actual move day. You can visit the dining room, the chapel, the various wings, and meet a few of our community residents.

Did you know that for every 12 people you meet, at least one is a potential friend? We have a large community at Maroba and there will be lots of people on hand to welcome you and help you settle in.

“My father Raymond was recently a resident in The Manor at Maroba. I, along with my sister Lianne and brother Greg would like to send you our sincere thanks on behalf of our father for the care he was given.

We found all the staff, Registered Nurses, Assistants in Nursing, cleaning and kitchen staff  helpful, friendly, dedicated and professional at all times.  He was always treated with respect and given the highest quality of care.

This was a very difficult time for our family and your staff were understanding and considerate of our needs and quick to share some humour to lighten the situation.  My father quickly felt at home and loved to have a chat with all the staff and the other residents. In the end we spent many hours at night with Dad and again nothing was too much trouble. Please pass on our thanks.” – Greg, Lianne and Paul Meredith.
