Thank you to one and all at Sibbertoft Manor for making my mother’s birthday such a delightful day for her from beginning to end.
It was a busy day behind the scenes, as ever, yet everyone found time to congratulate Joyce and to have a chat with us.
As a former primary school teacher, Joyce enjoyed sitting in the garden, watching while decorations on a Summer Seaside theme were put in place, ready for the arrival of “The Danny James Band” It reminded her of putting up classroom displays!
From the glorious weather to the special birthday lunch, to the “Golden Oldies” played by the band who sang “Happy Birthday” to her, to the home made chocolate and mint butterfly cake, my mother and I had a wonderful day.

Dear Matron and all staff at Sibbertoft,
I can’t thank you enough for the kindness, love and care you showed to my mum, myself and the family. She was looked after well and had begun to see it as her home. When she became ill, she was able to stay in her own bed with no distressing intervention and she died peacefully with her family around her. We are very grateful for that and to both nurses, who were on duty that day, for their kindness and support.
I know there is also a big background support team – Care Assistants, Cleaners, Laundry, Cooks and Gardners. Please pass on my thanks to all.
I just wanted to thank you and all your wonderful carers and nurses who looked after Mum while she was in Sibbertoft.
The whole family always said after visiting her “thank heavens she is in such a lovely home”.
It was nice to see some of you at Mum’s funeral. I think it was such a lovely service and the start of us all remembering her when she was well. Although I think her character still came through to the end!
With Best Wishes.
Kate and Hilda’s family
On behalf of all of Hilda’s family, I just wanted to put in writing how grateful we all are for the loving care which Hilda received from you over the past 5+ years. She really could not have been better looked after: without exception, everyone treated her with dignity, respect and kindness, and you made her final years as happy and comfortable as possible.
Many thanks from us all
Thank you all for the care and trouble taken to ensure that I had such a happy birthday
Many, many thanks for all your care and attention over the last year and a bit.
It’s been very comforting knowing the care and, it must be said, tolerance, you show!
A haven of care, calm and stability.
