My Mother was introduced to the caring establishment of Vailima Gardens, after having major surgery and requiring respite care.

After the recovery period, she felt so comfortable with the friendly staff and the readily acceptance of all the residents, she sought information to become a permanent resident.

Since mum became a resident, the family has seen a positive improvement in her well being due to the support from Vailima staff.

The excellent respite care at Vailima Gardens provided to my mother, afforded her the experience of secure independent living in an adult supporting environment

As often happens, I came home from hospital soon after having an emergency operation. I wasn’t well or able to cope with looking after myself. Then I was fortunate to hear of the wonderful respite care available at Vailima Gardens. The best part was that respite was quickly and easily arranged by myself and family.

From the moment I stepped into the grand main house of Vailima Gardens and met with the understanding and caring manager, I knew it was the very place for me to relax, recover, feel safe and get well soon. At a very reasonable and affordable cost too. I have many happy memories of my respite stay: My beautiful, quiet, self-contained respite room with views to a rose garden. The responsible and gentle care I received immediately from all staff. The cook who made healthy tasty meals just right for my post-operation diet. Daily hellos from residents, some who were like me and had come for a short term stay.

Vailima Gardens is in a perfect central location and I would go for strolls in the Botanical Gardens that’s incredibly just over the road. If I felt like going to town, it took less than a 10 minute bus trip. It was like staying in a resort with charm and modern facilities, and having a wonderful holiday. My family and friends said each day I was looking much healthier and happier so I arranged to stay a longer than first planned. The respite care was excellent at Vailima Gardens and certainly helped me to quickly recover and get back to home life and work.
