Our most sincere and heartfelt thanks for the loving care and attention given to Nan during her stay at Westmar. It was also a comfort to us to know that she was being so well looked after. Your kindness will always be remembered.

Dear Westmar Thankyou all at Westmar Senior Care for the wonderful care you have given Mum we appreciate all you do. For allowing us to come and go at odd hours and letting us help in some way. Her life has been richer for your friendship. DW ' Hartlea ' Darfield.
