"That's very kind Evelyn and well said because we know there were distinctly good times when Mum was involved in activities, trips and special occasions. More especially remembered by us as a family is your great love and care given so unconditionally to Mother. We are so grateful for this over the last 4 years"

To Evelyn & All Staff of Hiron Wing
"Thank you all so much for the dedicated care you gave Dot over the last 4 years. Your patience and thoughtfulness surpassed our hope and Dot was very fortunate to be in your care. Words can't express our gratitude."
