My mum was accepted as a resident to Bethesda, part of Mercy Community Services (MCS) Aged Care Services at Nudgee. Mum is in her late 80s and was very keen to maintain her independent living arrangement until the end. But many contributing factors led her to understand she required more assistance than she was receiving under her Home Care Package. She’d been wonderfully cared for by staff from MCS Aged Care Services at home and knew if ever she required residential care, this is where she wanted to live. So, she applied to MCS Aged Care Services and was thrilled to be offered a room in Bethesda, the new area which opened in January 2014.
Mum cannot speak highly enough of the care she has received since arriving at Bethesda. From the top level of management to the daily care providers, Mum says they’re wonderful. As a family member, it’s been wonderful to see Mum settle so well into her new environment. This is a combination of an amazing Mum, and the quality of people working at Bethesda.
