To all the Team,

On behalf of the family we just want to personally thank you sincerely for the care and devotion you all showed to our dad. Our kids granddad and dad in law.

To see dad settled and as happy and contented as he was when I saw him two weeks ago was something we will be forever grateful for.

Your professionalism was outstanding and I know that he really appreciated you not pushing him to go to the lounge or stressing him out by making him go to the dining room for meals.

Our dad was really special to us as no doubt all dads are and if I have one regret it's that we never got dad to you sooner, who know's maybe we would still have him with us now, but then his quality of life was not good and it just wasn't to be.

So once again from us all our most sincere THANK YOU.

Kindest Regards
