Residents & Their Families
Mayflower is the only place I could live. People are so caring and helpful. If I need to see a physio, they make sure it happens. They are so good at looking after my health and daily living.
The Mayflower Reservoir staff are caring for our mother during the most challenging time in her life. As siblings, we could not have asked for a better place for our mother to be comfortable, looked after and staff so caring for her needs. All the staff are exceptional and are special which makes as siblings feel at ease that our mother is in a safe place. Special thanks goes out to all nursing staff and carers. Thank you
Having had some experience with other aged care centres I cannot recommend Mayflower enough. The staff are so kind and gentle with our Mum. Mayflower has a true sense of community and it shows in the care they provide.
You are all so obliging and generous with your time. Always going above the call of duty and doing extra tasks for me.
Both my husband and I can't thank enough all managers, nurses, carers and everyone contributing at Mayflower for the quality service provided to our mums. From day one all our hopes and expectations have been consistently met and exceeded. This gives us a great deal of comfort knowing that our loved ones are in good, caring and dedicated hands.
