C & J. W., Firing, Norfolk (26th August 2015)

 
To ALL the staff at Lower Farm Nursing Home,
 
Words can never say how wonderful you all are - we want to thank you all for the exceptional care you gave to our Mum, J.W., during her short stay with you.
 
We had reservations at the time we were told that Mum had to go into a nursing home but from the very first meeting we had with Jane to the last day of Mum's life, you proved to us what real care is all about. Nothing was ever too much trouble, you gave wihout complaint everything that was required and more.
 
I only got to know 3 names in this short time but Jane, Linda and Helena became our friends and family and will always be a warm feeling in our hearts but to all the other staff, you are all equally thought of.
 
We were made to feel welcome whenever we visited and I know Mum was in the hands of people who really knew what they were doing, never did we have the slightest concern that Mum's needs and wishes were being adhered to wholeheartedly.
 
We would recommend Lower Farm to all without any reservation at all and if we were rating you out of 10, you all get 11!!!
 
Thank you so much for caring for our Mum as we would have done ourselves and for the geniune love you showed to her and us at the time of need.
 
From the bottom of our hearts and in J's memory, we thank you very very much.
 

 

T. C., King’s Lynn, Norfolk 

 

“I am writing on behalf of my brothers, sisters and myself to thank you for taking such good care of Mum during her stay at Lower Farm. 

Not only did the team of carers look after Mum but we also were made to feel cared for and never in the way. It would be wrong to single out any individuals for particular praise but we all feel that among the team some have become friends and hopefully will remain so."

 

Family of E.L. 

 

To All the Staff at Lower Farm who made my mother, E.L.’s life the best they could manage during the past year. 

Thank you all so much for your unfailing friendliness, kindness, caring and courtesy both to her and those who visited. You made a difficult year bearable. 

Again all my thanks. You do a great job with your care.”
