No words can really thank you all enough for the care and companionship you have given mum over the best part of 3 years. You have been our extended family sharing in Mum’s ups and downs, her joy and happiness.
The atmosphere you have all created on Beech Unit is one Mum was delighted to call her home. A place where she was truly relaxed and happy. Where she made friends and loved the outings and activities etc.
Also, I wish to mention Jack and Jill the cats. Whilst there has been some controversy on the unit by their presence Mum and I have enjoyed them. Jack in Mum’s room the days before her passing and his guarding of Mum in her bed when she had gone was so touching. I hope they will be allowed to stay and give joy and companionship to other residents in the future.
All of you on Beech Unit and I mean everyone Mum came into contact with day and night staff; are what makes the Care Home and the care you provided was the best. It has been a privilege to know you.
When times are fraught , remember you do make a huge difference to the lives of the residents in your care and their families. Remember Mum’s smile and carry on knowing you are respected, appreciated and loved even if at that moment in time it is not always apparent.
My family wish to thank you so much for everything.'
Rosemary Morgan and Family.
