Andy and Marilyn Luck, Melbourne
My mother, who died at Sibbertoft Manor in October 2017, lived with you since February 2015, and was very happy there. We visited her from Australia several times in 2015 before returning to Melbourne, so Marilyn and I have personal knowledge of her accommodation and the care you provided. We especially appreciated the meals you provided us and Edna in your sunny upstairs lounge.
We would like to thank you for making mother’s last few years as happy as they were and we are glad that her final ‘flight’ was peaceful and as stress free as possible. I know my brother Eddie and his wife Chris, who have carried our share of the responsibility for mother since we emigrated to Australia in 1977, also feel this way.
The best place with the best possible care
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.
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.
Dear staff at Sibbertoft
Just a big thank you for looking after Stephen and making him so comfortable. All his visitors remarked on ‘the lovely staff at Sibbertoft’.
