I am writing on behalf of my sisters and myself to convey our sincere thanks for all that you have done for our Mother. She moved to Sibbertoft nearly three years ago and many of you have known her since then. You will have witnessed her changes over those years from someone who found it difficult to settle to latterly a much more peaceful person. Your constant care and friendship with her has been very much appreciated..
It must always be difficult for you to look into a room a find that a face is missing. Please be aware that for us as regular visitors that we will miss you all and think of the many offers of cups of tea or coffee that you kindly made for us.
With all our best wishes for the future and again with all our thanks.”
John and Harriet.
“I visited Mum on Tuesday and I was really warmed to see your activities lady had a plastic envelope specifically tailored for Mum with pictures of Royal Ascot, ladies in their hats, the Queen and various pictures of different race horses, and poems of racing. I just wanted to show my appreciation . Her passion and love was and IS horse racing – she was a member of the Royal Ascot racing club (as you know) and to show her any recognition of those days is marvellous. She loves poetry too. Thank you all for caring for her so beautifully. She always looks clean, tidy, pretty and happy when I visit her. It’s lovely that you are stimulating her as we never really know do we what goes on in her head and how much she actually does understand but can’t communicate?
She also has a huge love of tennis – was Tim Henman, then moved on to Andy Murray!
I am sure she would love it if you could put the telly on for her when Royal Ascot starts next Tuesday and indeed I think Queens tennis is on next week too. I know she zones in and out but all this stimulation and nostalgia I feel will benefit her. And of course Wimbledon tennis. Please keep playing the background music when she is in your main sitting room. She loves singing and music . Also church was a big thing for her but I appreciate you cannot take her to the church services but church was a great comfort to her.
To summarise – keep doing what you are doing! We are so relieved that Mum is in such a compassionate and caring home. We don’t […]
“To all those at Sibbertoft
I just wanted to write to all of you who cared for my Granny, Mrs G.
I felt you all cared for her with such patience and looked after her so well, and for that I will always be so grateful to you.
It was always a welcoming and warm environment when walking through the door at Sibbertoft, and that counted for so much to know she was in a loving place.
You all work so hard and it was lovely to have had the chance to meet you all. Wishing Sibbertoft all the best, Thank you”
On behalf of all John’s family I would like to thank you and all your lovely staff, Carers, nurses, outside staff and helpers for looking after him so kindly. Everyone really seemed to care about him – with his lovely smile. It made our lives more bearable. We shall all miss him enormously but hope he is now at peace.
