Mrs DS – age 94
“Recently I stayed at St George’s House for respite care and I am writing to congratulate Marie and her fantastic team.
Right from my first few moments, when they were very busy, I was welcomed in the most friendly way. During my whole stay all the staff were very attentive, but more than that, nothing was too much trouble. In fact I am a very fussy eater but they adapted the menu to suit me.
Please pass on my thanks to the team at St George’s for all their care and attention"
“After I lost my husband I was very worried about how I would manage on my own. Moving to Abbeyfield has given me a chance to make new friends and I have found a second family. I can be on my own when I want to be but I am no longer alone. I feel safe here and I like that”
Mrs CC – Age 88
