“Janice rang to check her service times and let us know that Carina always does an excellent job and Janice is so happy to have Carina come and help her. Janice said Carina is always so lovely and helpful.”

“What I like about St Carthage’s the most is when I come in for Respite. I love staying in for sleep overs and getting to see all my friends and hanging out with them, and the staff too. I really like to do cooking and it makes me feel good when I cook meals for my friends.
I enjoy helping out at the Respite house with cleaning.
We go to lots of different places on outings and my favourite is going to different places for lunch.
St Carthage’s pick me up from my work place and I go to the Respite house to hang out and relax in my break times before being dropped back to work.”

“Dear Jess, on behalf of our family I would like to thank St Carthages for their support, care and friendship over the year to me mother Connie Jamieson.
Without St Carthages Mum would not have been able to remain in independent living for as long as she did.
It was a hard choice for our family to decide for Mum to go into Permanent Care, but because of her health and dementia we felt it the best thing to do.
Over the years Mum as had her ups and downs and most recently the downs. Her mind is not where it used to be, she looks out her window and thinks that is in Sydney where she live as a young girl and that the floods she sees on TV are in Sydney and talks mainly about her parent and siblings who have all passed.
Mum hasn’t mentioned her garden or unit where she live in East Lismore.
Thanking you and your staff.”

“Anna called to tell us her father, Walter, will be transferred to permanent care. She said Walter is fading and not mobile and its sad that he has to go into a nursing home but he can’t go home. Anna thanked St Carthage’s for everything we have done for Walter saying ” you have been his life and all so wonderful”. Anna said he was very hesitant at the beginning to have assistance but it ended up being all he talked about and was company for him every morning.
Anna said it has been a pleasure dealing with St Carthage’s. I asked her to pass on our best wishes to Walter, saying we will miss his lovely gentle nature.”
