Just a note to say I did not have to have my wife, Audrey, away from the Potter Home to realise how much the Home and it's staff had contributed to my wife's well-being. Every single staff member - cleaners, kitchen staff, nurses had responded to Audrey and showed her that they cared for her.

Thank-you for allowing us to retain our room.
