"My father spent the last few weeks of his life at Overslade House. At the hospital we'd been given a poor outlook and realised that there were only days left for Dad, and were very apprehensive when it was suggested that we look at a Care Home for him to see his last days out, knowing that his own home would have been his preferred option, but there was no time to arrange that. But on first stepping into Overslade House to see where we might have to send him, we felt an instant relief, and knew by the welcome, the smiles from the staff, the smiles from the guests, the look and the overall feel of the place, that getting Dad a room there was the best thing for Dad and us his family.
And we weren't disappointed. Dad's last days were as comfortable for him as it was for us. And we couldn't have wished for anything more.
Thank you to everyone at Overslade House, including all the other guests in Dad's unit, for making that so."
