Mary Teasdale, 73
"I've been a resident at Wellburn House now for almost 4 years, and I've enjoyed every minute of life here.
Some of the highlights of the week for me, are when visitors come to see me. Even though they're coming to a home, staff and other residents are extremely respectful and we always manage to enjoy quality time together. Or our day trips too. I love them. We always manage to get out and about to some wonderful places. It's always such a thrill to get in the mini bus and go exploring.
I love the buzz around the place during the morning breakfast routine in the dining room. It's so lively and chatty. It starts the day of on the right foot. Mealtimes are always very sociable and the food is delicious too.
I adore being here, around like minded people and every day is a joy."
