Meet Shirley and her daughter, Ingrid, who love catching up at Charingfield

We love helping residents stay connected with their loved ones

How did you feel when your Mum first moved to Charingfield?

I knew Mum needed expert care, but I was worried how she’d adjust after living on her own for so long. As soon as she was settled at Charingfield, though, she was just so happy. She loves her bright, sunny suite that opens onto its own balcony, and she feels perfectly at home now.

Do you feel welcome at Charingfield?

I genuinely look forward to my visits with Mum – there’s life and energy here and everyone is happy. The staff are delightful and respectful, and no matter what time I visit, the high level of care and the welcoming attitude is always the same.

What do you like to do on your visits?

Mum has always lived in Waverley and it’s important to both of us that she can still experience what makes this part of Sydney so special. Charingfield is a little oasis just off Bronte Rd and we love wandering down this vibrant street, visiting her favourite café, talking to the shopkeepers she knows, and just enjoying being together.

What else do you love about Charingfield?

Meals are healthy, cooked fresh on-site and presented beautifully, and the gardens are so amazing. Mum is able to set her own routine and the personal care and attention she receives is exceptional.
