"Carer retreat run by Lucinda Cottage"
Posted by HammondCare stories (as ),
I am a carer whose husband attends Lucinda Cottage on a regular basis due to his Dementia. I recently attended a HammondCare retreat at Bells Killcare Beach.
The team leader did a superb job organising the event and took care of all our needs. We were literally treated like "royalty", and I was thrilled to be able to liase with the other carers and find out their coping strategies.
The accommodation was extremely comfortable, meals superb, and the back massage heavenly.
My only comment is we would have benefitted from an additional day of relaxing - a very rare occasion as a full time carer.
I would also like to mention that the team leader and her team do an absolute superb job - I feel extremely fortunate that I have found a place that I can leave my dear husband with absolute confidence that he will be well cared for, and that he feels loved and respected at the same time.
