What our residents say

I am loving it

I came to AdventCare Whitehorse 4 months ago and I am loving it since the day I came in. I feel as though a big burden has been lifted off my shoulders. I have found all nurses, doctors and office staff to be wonderful caring people. Before I came here I had to go twice into age care centres for a few weeks at Ballarat with broken bones. I felt that I could not stay any longer. I did not like either place and was glad to get home. But now I feel very grateful to be in such a wonderful home like AdventCare Whitehorse. Thank-you.

Resident – Whitehorse

Dad's life has been enriched

My father has been a resident at AdventCare Whitehorse for 18 months.

From the outset, management and staff were helpful and knowledgeable, smoothly guiding us through admission. I have been deeply appreciative of all staff creating an atmosphere of calm, warm, welcoming inclusion, settling Dad in as he adapted to new routines, new environments, and new people. Dad's life has been enriched with company at meal times in the dining room, and the range of well-organised activities he participates in every week.  It has given me great peace of mind to know Dad is cared for by polite, supportive staff.  Dad is happy and relaxed and considers himself fortunate to be at AdventCare.   I enjoy my visits, knowing Dad is settled, happy and well cared for.

Resident's Daughter

The care is fantastic

After searching for many places, there is no doubt in our minds that we have come to the right place for us. The care is fantastic and staff and residents are very friendly and helpful.

Keith and Betty
Residents – Whitehorse

Very happy and comfortable

I have been here for 14 years and I have been very happy and comfortable.  The food is good, there are plenty of activities and things to do and the spiritual program is very important to me.  My time here has flown.

June
Resident – Whitehorse

Wonderful place to live

I think it’s a wonderful place to live in your retirement particularly if you have a disability.

Mabel
Resident – Whitehorse

Friendly caring nurses

I am so lucky to have seen the growth of Coronella to AdventCare.  First a building for accommodation, a kitchen, dining room, lounge and a flat for the Matron.  Next units for self-supporting residents which still exist today around the court.  Staff and residents were a loving happy family.  Gradually a new extension was added where my father-in-law and mother-in-law were cared for in their later years. 

Now I am here in my late years and I thank God for the dedicated, lovely and friendly caring nurses to help me on my daily journey.  The management department will always listen to any problem you may have.  I asked one of the nurses why is the staff so friendly and caring and she replied it comes from management and the Christian based care.
