Doreen has been a resident with us for some time after moving here from Yeppoon near Rockhampton.
Despite looking at several options around the Gold Coast area, Doreen’s family chose Merrimac Private Care because they were impressed with the nursing care and support provided and the facilities on offer.
Doreen’s daughter in-law Maeber commented “We were quite impressed with the spaciousness and size of the rooms. We have been very impressed with the staff, their care, their devotion and their eagerness to speak with us when we have any concerns.”
At Merrimac Park, each of our residents enjoy a private room with large ensuite, fully fitted with an electronic bed, bedside table, built-in mirrored wardrobe, arm chair, large flat screen TV and entertainment unit.
A family run business that understands the needs and desires of our residents, Merrimac Park provides a 7 days per week lifestyle activities program. We want our residents to feel at home and enjoy social interaction and be part of the Superior Care Family.
We asked Maeber what her impression was of the lifestyle our residents enjoyed at Merrimac Park, “The companionship of all of the residents is good, they can mix in the communal dining room and lounge room. There’s everything to keep the residents motivated and interested. They regularly play bowls and cards, and do exercises and they have daily walks around the vicinity. Residents are also able to do gardening in their own personal plot if they wish to. They have a hairdressing salon onsite which is wonderfully maintained. It offers the opportunity for all of the residents to have their hair done whenever they wish.”
A big concern for Ray, Doreen’s son was that his mother was being cared for when he wasn’t around. That she was getting 24 hour nursing care and support within an environment that genuinely cared about her wellbeing. Ray said “I think it’s reassuring that when I’m not here at day time that Doreen is being looked after”.
