Kimberley Residential Aged Care Testimonials
We looked at many nursing homes throughout Perth for our Mum who has dementia and decided on Kimberley. The reason, the staff!! They love their jobs and really look after for the people under their care.
A quick, heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Kimberley Residential Aged Care! A lovely place in a difficult time.
Kimberley Residential Aged Care is a great place and we are very happy with the care being given to our Mum. We are able to visit often and anytime we like.
The level of care my Father received and the professionalism of the staff was excellent. I could not be happier with what we received.
It’s the little things that can make a big difference; the human connection, a hug, a touch of the shoulder, a smile and the right words at the right time. It all helps to make my mum’s life better.
Every time we visited our Father at Kimberley, we always found the staff and management to be a pleasure to deal with and the way they cared for him made us feel very comfortable that he was in the right place.
We’ll always remember the love and care you provided Bena and appreciate your hard work, dedication and compassion you extend to her and our family.
Thanks to the team at Kimberley for the care you gave my Mum. You manage a great facility which provides high quality care for residents with complex care needs. Just as Kimberley was recommended to me, I would have no hesitation in recommending Kimberley to others.
Thank you Kimberley. The care provided to the residents and their families is exceptional. The residents were always clean and tidy, as were the facilities. Visitors were welcome and always treated with consideration. The staff are warm and friendly and work extremely hard.
I live 360 km from the city and I’m so grateful for the care given to my mother. The staff at Kimberley are extremely helpful providing clinical and lifestyle care in a respectful and dignified manner, making my mother’s life pleasurable and giving me peace of mind.
