Elaine Chapman moved into Margaret Hubery House in August 2015. She had always been fiercely independent and enjoyed being in her own home, however, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s five years ago, Elaine’s niece Melinda suggested a move to the residential care home.

When looking choosing a residential care home, Elaine visited Margaret Hubery House and liked the various activities and programs that were organised for the residents. Melinda was impressed with the care and compassion the staff had for each of the residents.

“From the receptionist to the kitchen hand and to the carers, everyone has been simply fantastic. They’ve always had a smiling face and nothing has been too hard for them.

“Everyone knows everyone and Jacqui, the Activities Coordinator ensures that all the residents are involved in the activities. I love that it is a community but everyone is an individual as well,” Melinda said.

Melinda said that although her aunty never wanted to come to a nursing home when she made the move to Margaret Hubery House she made many friends and settled in well.

“She loved participating in the social activities and used to love singing. She took part in sing-a-longs, arts and crafts, movie afternoons and this literally became her second family,” Melinda said.

Elaine passed away in August this year and has left behind fond memories with the staff and residents at Margaret Hubery House.
