Nan’s wish

Ninety-nine year old Hilda Lindsay, fondly known as Nan, has been with RSL Care WA since March 2012.

Eastern Hills Home Care Manager Barbara Monahan and her team recently received a beautifully written letter from Nan’s granddaughter, Fiona Harris.

At the age of 95, still living in her own home with Macular Degeneration, Dementia, and after a bad fall, we knew that to fulfil Nan’s wishes of remaining at home we needed additional help.

From the outset, RSL Care WA considered all of our needs and wishes and this has evolved over the last five years. The most important aspect of Nan’s wellbeing is the continuity of the Carers.

We have been privileged to have Maree, our ‘rock’ and ‘go-to guru’, and Tessa our ‘Kiwi’ (anything for Nan) since the beginning, as well as Sonia ‘chef extraordinaire’, Heather our ‘little ray of sunshine’, and Tracey who just ‘connects’ with Nan, as our team of wonderful Carers.

They have all gone above and beyond to provide Nan with a happy healthy home environment.

RSL Care WA's Home Care services have provided us with the knowledge, guidance, support and reassurance often needed in stressful situations that can arise. In our case, none more so than the Parkerville/Stoneville bushfire where Nan had to be evacuated for 4 days from her home – RSL Care WA came to the rescue – they are our extended family.

RSL Care WA has fulfilled my Nan’s most important wish – to remain in her own home.

She looks forward to celebrating her 100th birthday in December surrounded by those who love and care for her.

Thank you to Barbara and all at RSL Care WA for making this possible."

Of the letter, Barbara said, “It is really rewarding to receive such a heartfelt testimonial for the work we do. The Eastern Hills’ staff are always willing to go the extra mile; they do value the clients as individuals; and always focus on working with the clients and their families to ensure their varying needs are met so they are able to live a dignified life in their own homes for as long as possible. It is much appreciated when people take the time to provide such positive feedback."
