"How can we thank the carers? They looked after my mother like she was their own. No wonder when returning after a visit with family she would say as she sat back in her chair, “that’s good I’m home”."

"Thank You for looking after my mother so well in the last years of her life. She couldn’t have been in a better place - looked after by people who genuinely cared - a load was taken off our shoulders. Thank you also for the kindness shown towards me on my visits but you’re not rid of me yet! I plan to pop in during my visits home."
