Dear Wendy and all staff,
May I say a very big thank you to you all for all that you have meant to me over the past six years. In caring for her the way that you did, in keeping me informed if changes in her condition occured, in allowing her to remain comfortable - often very happy despite her failing mental state - and well presented, afforded me a peace of mind that I could not have had otherwise.
It has always been a joy to be amongst you all. Often the circumstances are not of the best in a care home, where illness and death are natural progressions. But these are an integral part of our human lot, and what is important is how they are accommodated. At Seaview, I have always been made to feel welcome, in surrounds that were happy, colourful, attractive and intriguing in many ways, and staff and residents alike, I have felt to be dear friends.
I must also say how touched I was by the beautiful card and bouquet of flowers you sent me. The bouquet was as nice as I have ever received and remains fresh and beautiful.
My hopes and prayers go to you all for the continuing success of the work at Seaview House.
