'As a registered nurse and educator in the aged care sector, I believe high quality care for elderly residents and their families is paramount. From my many educational visits to Burstows Funeral Home, I am assured and comforted that the same high level of care is continued at Burstows, especially in areas normally unseen by the public.'
Sue Radecker RN, BNursing, Grad Dip FET, Cert IV WTA
