"To all the kind staff at Continuing Care for looking after me when I visited. I'll never forget the experience, it was good for my inner being, as I feel a lot better than when I arrived. Thank you for all the good deeds performed, following in the footsteps of Florence Nightingale. God Bless you all!"
