Antoinette: My father has at times been difficult and the staff have been terrific and very compassionate when caring for him. We are grateful for the love and care the team at Rosehill provide not only to my father, but to all their residents.
Antoinette - April 21, 2017 Aged Care Residence Highett
My parents have both been through the difficult process of changes in their health that have meant they can no longer live independently and require full time care. After 64 years of marriage finding a facility that would take them both was most important. My family have been so impressed and grateful to Menarock Life Highett from the first contact with its manager, we have been guided and supported through this complex process from Cleo to every member of staff, we have found kindness, compassion, and respect. My parents are settling in well and I feel they are in the best place, they have now been residents for 3 months. Thank you Menarock Life Highett for setting the standards high and keeping the caring in aged care
