Testimonials
Dear Bob,

I have been asked to pass on thanks from residents for you care of them over the last few nights. You have impressed a lot of residents who have witnessed your willingness to 'muck in' during these difficult times, and to do a fine job of caring for them.

In particular, Ann Capey has said that you treated her with great kindness, gentleness and dignity as you tended to her, and she was very grateful for your help. She said you were 'absolutely wonderful!' and wanted me to be sure to pass on her sentiments. She also mentioned that you spent time with her when she needed company, and that made her feel valued. I think you have become her favourite caregiver!

You also had high praise from Ken and Lillian Mason. Lillian said that you made her feel completely at ease about having a man tend to her needs, and used very similar words to those that Ann used when talking about your care of her. She was full of superlatives! Ken added that his admiration for you had grown in 'leaps and bounds' because of your demonstrated kindness and caring. They both commented that, as a bonus, they have enjoyed getting to know you better.

You have done a wonderful job, Bob, and the residents you cared for have appreciated your kindnesses very much.

Kind Regards.
