We are a not for profit healthcare organisation providing care and support for Veterans, Ex-service personnel and their families. We do this by working closely with the Veteran's and Service's community.
Our aim is to be recognised as the leader in the care of veterans, ex-service personnel, and their families.
I wish to thank you sincerely for the assistance given to my husband and me. Care is provided by very pleasant and capable women. Without them I would not be able to cope.
We are both indeed very grateful and we thank you all.
