Family is always welcome at Yaralla Place, Maryborough

on Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Candice visits her Mum, Barbara, five days a week at Yaralla Place Aged Care Community. She loves that there are no set visiting hours, so she feels welcome at any time.

What do you like to do on your visits?
Mum likes spending time outdoors and we’ve planted a little garden full of bright flowers just outside her window. We spend a lot of time here looking at the garden and we sing our favourite songs together. Sometimes, my sister and I take her to the markets near Town Hall, or to her favourite coffee shop near Queens Park. We’ll often take her back to our homes for the day, too.

Does your Mum feel at home at Yaralla Place?
She’s very settled here and very happy. The smaller house design really suits her as she’s quite a private person. She’s more comfortable being in this environment with familiar faces she knows, and her private suite is her sanctuary. When we take her out for a day trip, she always tells us when she’s ready to come ‘home’ – back to Yaralla.

What else do you like about PresCare Maryborough?
Mum has lived here for two years now, and as a Registered Nurse myself, I have great confidence that she is receiving the best care. The staff are lovely and really take the time to get to know Mum’s routine. They support her to remain as independent as possible, and they’re very respectful.
