“As you know my mum has a small fall today. I would just like to thank the staff for their wonderful care, especially Charlene, who not only phoned me twice but was so caring. When I came in the evening Charlene and Fran in particular were just so kind and gentle with mum. I don’t normally see the personal care in action, and although I gave mum the space to keep her dignity, I felt very moved by how lovely they were with her. The other staff that were on duty were all so genuinely concerned and I felt that mum was in a very warm environment. Thank you to the staff for providing a home that I feel confident with and one that cares for my mum so well.”
Following a very generous donation from Trinity Methodist Church after their Christmas collection, we were able to purchase three paintings of local scenes, produced by a local artist, John Kennedy. They now have pride of place in our lounge and are enjoyed greatly by our Residents, Staff and Visitors.
Members of Trinity Methodist Church, and the artist himself were invited to afternoon tea and to say a very big thank you for this special gift to enhance the lives of our Residents.
