Palliative Care requires deep and personal understanding, sensitivity and experience. At Palm Lake Care we consider it a privilege to support our residents and their family and friends in this emotionally challenging stage of their care.
Specialist care for memory support is available at several Palm Lake Care communities, including our purpose-designed community called Memory Lanes.

Reflection: Living in Aged Care
A poem by Gisela Walden
91 years young
I thought I'd touch base with you now we are two weeks into Mum's stay at Mt Warren Park. Firstly let me say I am so impressed with not only the facility but the staff. They are friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and make Mum feel very special. I wish you could have seen her before she arrived and a now comparison of her. I think that alone shows just how much you add to a person's joy in their life when before it was lacking in many and varied ways.
Palm Lake Care is the gold standard of what aged care in the modern era should be. Having Mum in Palm Lake Care allowed me to create some lasting joyous memories.
I would like to thank the staff on Dorothy's behalf for their caring, pleasant and friendly nature displayed at all times and i am sure this has contributed to Dorothy's smooth transition into the aged care environment.
A very nice, pleasant and happy place to reside. Happy staff, happy residents and the food is great, just like home. Keep up the good work, big thanks to all the staff.
Reflection: Living in Aged Care
By Gisela Walden – 91 years young
Surprise Surprise I
My 90th Birthday has arrived.
But no party, no visit
In lockdown we are
My Children, my friends being so far.
Covid is the reason so hard to understand
The whole world is up and down
On every TV show and Channel it is around.
The Vaccine should save us, so the
Government tells us In Aged Care we are protected
And the Carers make sure we are not neglected.
To work they come
With Masks and plastic aprons on
Every day life goes on; even together we have some fun
The girls in pink dresses make sure it is done.
My dear Physios I also need you
And in a gentle way you take my pain away.
In Palm Lake Aged Care
Life is never boring
There is Exercise in the morning,
Sing-a-longs and people performing.
Our parties are top class
Live Bands and Dancing under the stars
Music keeps the doctor away
In good spirits we stay.
Leona I need to mention
She does her work to perfection
She is here, there and everywhere.
She is for a good lifestyle and healthy food
The Doctors and Nurses that care for us
Do it gladly without a fuss
But the constant change of staffing
Do very much confuse us.
At Christmas we are never alone
Family meetings and many sending greetings
The Christmas decorated doors now have different look
Artistic ideas from us it took.
One week before Christmas we have been celebrating
With songs and food, how exciting.
The time has come to look at the year
And the many things we did share.
To all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I thought I’d touch base with you now we are two weeks into Mum’s stay at Mt Warren Park. Firstly let me say I am so impressed with not only the facility but the staff. They are friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and make Mum feel very special. I wish you could have seen her before she arrived and a now comparison of her. I think that alone shows just how much you add to a person’s joy in their life when before it was lacking in many and varied ways.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done on behalf of our family in applying for the exemption to get dad moved to a safer location. Although he has chosen to stay where he is, I know that he would have enjoyed being one of the Palm Lake family, which is why you and other Palm Lake Care staff put in so much time and effort on his behalf. I am so sorry that dad won’t be experiencing all that the Palm Lake Care family have to offer in the beautiful Beachmere location.
One of the biggest things that I learnt from being involved with the Palm Lake Care community during the two weeks that Mum was at Mt Warren Park was how much you actually care about all of your guests. From the very first day that mum entered I was amazed at how much everyone really wanted to get to know her, from the maintenance man, carers, nurses, kitchen staff to cleaners. Even the residents were concerned about how she was and they would ask how I was also. Dad and Belinda did not spend much time up there during this period really, only a handful of one hour visits so I suppose they didn’t get to feel how much of a family it is. I think that is a reflection on being a family owned and run business like Palm Lake against being a bigger corporation like Tricare or Opal. When they were visiting they were probably given more space and privacy, whereas I was very much just part of the furniture.
I remember saying to Kathy the Lifestyle coordinator at the door to Mum’s room on the first day after she had been in telling mum all about the things that she was going to get Mum involved in “you do realise that she is palliative?”. To which Kathy replied “Yes but she can enjoy every minute she has left.” It was a massive eye opener for me. I had a total about face. Mum went there because she was terrified of going back into hospital and she was getting harder to nurse at home. It didn’t mean that she had to be stuck in her room for the whole time on her bed. And she wasn’t for the first nine or ten days. It was only once the pain got too bad and she got weaker that she got more bed ridden.
I also had a total mind shift about what aged care was about or should be about by being part of the Palm Lake Care Family, if only for a short time. A lot of the residents/guests are going to be at the facility for ten, fifteen or twenty years. The facility is their home first and foremost. As such it’s about not so much hanging onto the past but making new friends and beginning again. Moving forward with their lives. I would leave some nights at anytime between 8.30pm and 2.00am depending on how Mum was. There would be groups of people using a lounge area to play cards or watch television together, not just one or two nights but every single night (unless it was after midnight).
As sad as it may be for some residents to not have visitors all the time, I also believe that they are definitely going to be able to make friends and enjoy their life in the wonderful surroundings that Palm Lake Care facilities offer. Quite a lot of the residents certainly only used their rooms as a bedroom, they got up in the morning and used the resort throughout the day, the different lounge areas, gardens, dining areas, theatre etc. they were stimulated, active both physically and mentally. Aged care facilities should not be a place for someone to go into and spend the next ten to twenty years sitting in front of a television in their bedroom hoping that they may get a visitor. Palm Lake Care is the gold standard of what aged care in the modern era should be.
I have certainly told both of my children that I am more than happy for them to place me in a facility like Palm Lake Care, if they can ever find one that is to your standard as they both visited Mum there and were very impressed.
Again thank you for all that you have done for us, both this week and while Mum was in your care. Having Mum in Palm Lake Care allowed me to create some lasting joyous memories. I am certain that Sharyn feels 100% the same way as I do about your family.
Dorothy has now been in Palm Lakes Care for a period of approximately 5 months and has settled in really well. I would like to thank the staff on Dorothy’s behalf for their caring, pleasant and friendly nature displayed at all times and i am sure this has contributed to Dorothy’s smooth transition into the aged care environment.
The only problem that was encounted was the comfort of Dorthy’s bed. This was due to the fact that she has problems with her hips which requires her to lie with one leg over a pillow which the provided bed did not allow.
As a result a new suitable bed was sort that was not only comfortable for Dorothy but met the Aged Care facility’s requirements. It was in this phase that both Karen McGurk and Francis the Physiotherapist were extremely helpful. They used their sources to facilitate a bed that not only met requirements but was acquired at a very reasonable price.
I would just like to thank both Karen and Francis for the commendable and exceptional work they both put in in acquiring the new bed. It is much appreciated. They are both an asset to your organization.
A very nice, pleasant and happy place to reside. Happy staff, happy residents and the food is great, just like home.
Keep up the good work, big thanks to all the staff.
