I want to thank you for everything you've done for me an my family. I really don't know what I'd have done with out your staff over the past year. I know we've been demanding at some point in the last 6 weeks but I can't thank you and your staff enough.

- Dean Johnson, Home Care Client's family

Knowing Mum has the support of Ascot allows me to go about my daily business happy in the know that Mum is cared for. I can then get round on a weekend and spend time with her socially instead of in a care capacity.

- Mrs Sinclaire, Home Care Client's family

Ascot make me feel safe. The staff that come here are like daughters and the office are always there when I have a question on weekends. I have had carers for nearly 4 years and this is the best company I've had.

The Lawns received the below letter from Mrs L Wild 12/09/16

Dear Mr Bailey

I am Micheal Rogers sister in law and i just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff. He spent a week with you whilst my sister could come to Liverpool for my sons wedding on the 3rd September. Micheal is a very dear brother in law and is such a shame he is as he is now.

Micheal is much loved by me and my two sons being a constant in all our lives, espically since my own husband died 33 years ago. my boys look on him as their other dad.

To know that he was well cared for whilst with you is so reassuring. It must have been very difficult for him not being able to be with us all. Ironically i was a care assistant myself for 7 years, i was 62 when i stopped doing 12 hour shifts, i am now a dinner lady (5 years now) so i know only to well how hard it is for some to have to be cared for.

Thank you, please pass my thanks onto your staff, i'm sure Micheal will be pleased to be with you again should we need to be away

Yours sincerely

Mrs L Wild

Thank you to all at St Anne's for making Muriel's last years happy and comfortable, she was one of the family here & we very much appreciate the time and care you had for her.

It's great to see three staff named employee of the month and Marius as employee of the year. As we head towards the end of the year how about a pat on the back to all staff at St Anne's for coping so well with multiple falls, disagreements between residents, fretting families, a flood and christmas lunch time crisis. Professionalism, compassion can be seen in every member of staff and it's both reassuring & heartwarming to witness for myself in person.
