Aurrum Aged Care

One of our amazing nurses Fatima and Julie our General Manager from Aurrum Wyoming. We thank all the team for their commitment and care celebrating Aged Care Employee Day 2020. Our residents share their appreciation too through the following testimonials….

Marion, Kristy and Cegee (RN) just can’t do enough for you, nothing is too much. Cegee likes to have a joke. All the staff are wonderful, especially Andrew because he takes us for a walk.

All the nurses do a wonderful job. Gwen is great and Marion is fantastic. Kristy, Trent and Stuart are always ready with a smile. The Team goes above and beyond. Always obliging if you need anything.

All the nurses are lovely. The staff are very good at their job. Julie does a fantastic job. Being a smaller home makes a difference.

There are great nurses like Marion, Gwen, Annette and Stuart. Always taking time to have a chat and genuinely caring about me. A young nurse always waters my plants which is great.

The nurses are very helpful. They answer all queries and always help me get in and out of my wheelchair. They treat me with kindness and make time for me. They are all wonderful.
