30 March 2017 - Just a quick note to say a very BIG thank you. I think you are amazing.
I popped in to see Rose yesterday and was lucky enough to be with her for the group crossword – so much fun.
I could not believe that Rose was joining in and really engaged. This is the best I have seen her – brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you for all your efforts and energy with Rose and all the residents – you really inspire me and bring life to everyone who lives at Maupuia.
From my heart, thank you.
Best wishes, Jill.
