"My father came into Chater Lodge in the latter stages of his disease, when his wife (also in her 90s) could no longer care for him at their home; both were in need of respite. From the very first contact, when the manager and a member of staff came to our home to complete a questionnaire regarding our needs, they could not have been more attentive, professional and caring. As my father moved in and his reception was extremely well handled - he was immediately at home, despite this (obviously) being an unknown environment to him. Thereafter, he spent some 20 days at Charter Lodge during which I cannot speak too highly of the care he received. As his illness progressed, Charter Lodge continued to nurture and care for him in a very dignified way. And, during his last few days, when it was evident that he would not be coming home, Charter Lodge kept us closely informed of developments (this they did despite the fact that we were visiting him each day as well). He died peacefully with a member of staff at his side. Thank you all."
