Testimonials
We are very appreciative for the kindness all of the Fairview staff have shown to Richard. To know that he was being cared for so respectfully was a great source of comfort for us. Thank You.

I have to say that Fairview has been the most wonderful place for my mother to receive all the comforts her frail body needed. She was always beautifully made up, lipstick, nail polish ..... her food always smelt yummy. The staff are truly caring and the premises always in such clean order. I am grateful for your management.

"Thank you to all the beautiful caring staff at Fairview. I wanted to name you all but feared leaving someone out. You all took wonderful care of my darling Dad, when he wasn't at his finest. He was a true gentleman, who had he been his 'healthy self', would have been so appreciative of all the dedicated work you did for him. I feel that you all work in an area, not always recognised, nor given the accolades you all so deserve. "

'Mum', 'Cool gran' was such a special person to us all and her passing has left us feeling bereft and so sad. But thanks to you all her last few weeks were so comfortable and peaceful. The love and respect shown to mum was amazing; the kind words, little kisses, the simple touch of hands and the smiles kept her spirits alive and made her final days more bearable both for mum and we, her family.
Thank you so much.
God bless you all."
