Thank you for your understanding and caring of mum and also thank you for looking after and understanding my feelings. February 2018

I just wanted to quickly take the opportunity to say thank you so much for all that you and your team have done to make Nana's transition to Camellia Court such a good one.

My Dad, sister and I have just been so impressed with how well Nana has settled in, even though we know there is still a long way to go, she is so much calmer and less agitated which has been just so encouraging for us to see. We love how much life and energy there is at Camellia Court!
From the moment Dad and I brought her in that first day, our minds have been put at ease. From the welcome we got that day, to the medical care she has had so far, to the effort you went to yesterday with my wee girls, to the fact that you can ask any staff member about Nana and they know what's going on, it just means so much to us to know that when we're not with Nana, she is getting the most wonderful care. The little things really mean a lot to a family with someone they love who is suffering from this at times, heart-breaking disease.
So thank you so much for running such a wonderful facility!!! We feel lucky to have found you :) August 2018

A Big thank you to Camellia Court Rest Home for making their home dads home for the last 2 years we really appreciate the care you gave Dad - September 2018
