"I went into Challoner House after my husband's death, feeling very frail and unable to walk without help. I felt sick at the mention of food and had lost over a stone in a couple of weeks. I found the staff most sympathetic and helpful, day and night, so that after five weeks more or less I felt able to come to this place (extra care scheme), which is for people with some kind of disability, but basically able to look after themselves. However, if my condition (or either when my condition) deteriorates, I have asked my children to take me back to Challoner House."
