Joyce's respite stay

After a short stay in hospital Joyce came to Estia Health Bannockburn for two weeks of respite. As the carer for her husband at home, Joyce now needed someone to care for her.

Joyce has loved her two weeks stay at Estia Bannockburn and wouldn’t hesitate moving in permanently if she needed to.

When asked what she like most she said ‘everyone is so lovely and there is nothing I could fault. It’s been a learning experience for me because I’m used to being in a situation where I’ve been caring for people – either living in nursing homes or people living with disabilities. It’s been a good experience to be on the receiving end. The food is also very good here.’

Previously an entertainer, Joyce really enjoys the activity and entertainment within the home.

Joyce is looking forward to going home, playing tennis with her friends and taking a four-day comedy cruise along the east coast of Australia.
