On behalf of our family I would like to thank you and your team at Lexham Park for Joes care over the years. Because we lived such a distance away, it has always been a great relief and comfort for us that Jo was so well-looked after and loved. We want to acknowledge that care giving in general is not easy, and the exceptional care offered by Lexham Park is even more difficult. It is highly skilled work and emotionally and physically taxing, and we so very much appreciate the dedication and commitment of your people. You have a superb team of very special people.

To the Management and staff of Lexham Park - in particular those who tended John during his recent illness. I would like to thank you all for your professional skills but more importantly the tenderness and respect you always showed to John. The grievousness of the situation was made easier by your humanity with appreciation and admiration . Best wishes

Raewyn Winiata from the Ministry of Health wrote, "of the many 100's of reports I read, very few stand out in terms of recognising the needs of younger people and the issues that arise when living with older people who are generally over 80 years of age. One of these was from Lexham Park".
