To all the staff at Nightingale Hall. When Sonia agreed to take my Dad, Richard none of us had any idea how ill he was, except perhaps him.

I now think he was desperate to find a safe, caring place in which to spend his last time. I am very thankful that he found you. He was only with you 10 days, he passed away very quickly, which in truth was what he wanted.

Thank you for giving him and the rest of his family peace of mind, for carrying out his wishes and for treating us all with kindness, respect and dignity

To all staff, just a few words to compliment everyone on your fantastic home. The service, care, attention and support is beyond excellent.

Although we nearly lost Ray last weekend, the rapid response from your staff saved his life.

Ray’s home is Heatherdale and everyone there is his family. Thank you all for making his comfortable and welcome day and night.

My family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful care that Florence Yarrow received during her 18 months stay with you. She was very happy at St Catherine’s.

In particular I would like to mention her care during her last week which was excellent. All the staff were exceptionally kind and caring with a high standard of nursing care shown. It meant such a lot to us.

Thank you and best wishes

To all the staff at Whorlton Grange.

Just a note to thank you and all your staff for the loving care you gave to Mum during her time with you in St Catherine’s.

As you know, I was so thankful that you were with her at the end and I know you were instrumental in her being able to be discharged from hospital back into your care, also that you were able to keep her calm and comfortable during her last days with you.

Naturally, we are extremely sad, but realise it was the best thing for her, unfortunately this horrible disease robbed us of our Mum a long time ago. She was a lovely Mum and Gran and we will never forget her.

I want you to have this gift, it's so little for all you have done and you kept me calm in the end too. This is a small token from me to thank you for all your help.

Please give our sincere thanks and praise to all the staff who took care of Mum, we will be eternally grateful.
