Sibbertoft Manor


Thank you all for caring for mum so well.

“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 show our gratitude enough but it enables us as sad as it is with Mum’s dementia to carry on with our day to day family lives without worrying about her constantly . And that is what Mum would have wanted. She ALWAYS said our kids and lives must come first.

Thank you all for caring for mum so well.”

I just wanted to write to all of you who cared for my Granny, Mrs G.

“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”

thank you for your kindness and care for Dad

To All at Sibbertoft Manor
I wanted to write to thank you for your kindness and care for Dad in the 15 months he was living with you. Sadly his Dementia meant he was unable to continue to live at home but the thoughtful care and patience you showed him helped him to settle at Sibbertoft. It was clear that you had managed to get to know him and he responded to you – sometimes with that lovely “light-up-the-face smile. It is a bit of a strange time with arrangements to make etc and being a bit of support to mum. We will all miss Dad but hope that happy memories of a long, busy life will come too the fore in time.

Everyone really seemed to care about him – with his lovely smile

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.

Thank you for your patience and kindness

To all the staff at Sibbertoft Manor
Thank you so much for looking after my Nanna. It was so comforting too know how well looked after she was. Thank you for your patience and kindness that you showed her in her last years when she was at her most vulnerable. Having worked with some of you, I knew how kind you are and it was incredible how well looked after Nanna was. Keep doing what you are doing, you truly make a difference to the lives of the residents and their families.
