Residents & Their Families

Hear what our residents and their families have to say

Mayflower is an outstanding care facility. My mother has been a resident since Jan 2023 and we are so glad we decided to choose Mayflower. The residents are well cared for. They always look well kept, they are treated with respect and staff are aware of each person's needs and requests. In Lodden, Susan the head nurse sets a wonderful example for her staff. She treats residents like they are part of her family. She goes over and above her duties and keeps family members informed of any issues. Also, Helen the lifestyle coordinator always aims to provide some fun activities and entertainment that the residents love. Overall all staff are wonderful. The facility is always clean and inviting. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for their loved ones.

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.

Frequently asked questions

Find answers to common questions about Aged Care homes and services.

What is Residential Aged Care?

Residential Aged Care is for seniors who can no longer live independently at home. It includes accommodation and personalised care 24/7.

How much does Aged Care cost?

This varies depending on the home and the resident’s financial circumstances. The basic daily fee covers your day-to-day living costs. All residents are required to pay this fee, which set by the government and equates to 85% of the single aged pension. Depending on your financial situation, the government may ask you to contribute to your care costs though a means-tested care fee. The accommodation fee covers the room that you live in. The Department of Human Services will determine whether we will ask you to pay this fee.

What’s the difference between Retirement Living and Aged Care?

Retirement Living allows you to live independently while having access to support services and amenities, as well as a like-minded community . Aged Care provides 24/7 care and support.

Do you offer specialised dementia care?
