“The Nurses, Physiotherapists, Social Workers work endlessly to provide the elderly’s physical and emotional needs.”
Family member of a resident

I write to acknowledge my gratitude to all the staff involved in the care of my parents, Mimi and Sam Carmon, over these last four years, and I’d like to single out several groups for particular praise.
My deep thanks to the Social Work Department, especially Jennifer Jacobs, who looked after my father (and me too, on many occasions).
A special thank you to the OT Department. Nicole Melwani undertook several interventions, especially the installation of a very high-tech air mattress, which made a significant difference to my father’s quality of life in the last few weeks of his life.
Albert Carmon

I am writing to congratulate your amazing organisation and specially your dedicated people.
I am a first time ‘user’ of your magnificent facility, having assisted my elderly aunt, Joy Balkind, apply, be assessed and then settle in.
Joanne Jankelowitz, your Social Worker of Monte Terraces visited my elderly aunt whilst she was ACAT assessed and confined to St Vincent’s hospital, to meet her, assess her and to decide where she may best be accommodated. Joanne was friendly, thorough and professional. On admission to Monte, she assisted my aunt to settle in.
Joanne has continued to be the constructive and encouraging light to my aunt, as she resisted and found it hard going settling in and accepting where she was. But Joanne’s happy, accommodating (within reason) and encouraging nature, guided by her astute observations and enormous experience, 6 months later has won the day.
