Quote from former resident:
"I would like to thank you all for the care and support given to me whilst staying with your service, it has been a pleasure staying here, it has been like home from home. The comfort, kindness and care given was impeccable. I cannot thank you enough."

Quote from relative:
"Enormous thank you to all of you for the love and care you have given to my dad for many years. It has made being away from him much easier knowing how well he is looked after. To all the staff who cared with kindness and compassion - thank you."

Quote from friend:
"I recently visited a very dear friend of mine at Parkside and I want to tell you what a pleasure it was. Every carer was professional and friendly and did all they could to make life easy, especially when taking my friend out. When we pressed the buzzer a smiling, helpful carer miraculously appeared almost instantaneously. Two other things struck me as significant; the small family-like units, and the way the staff work as a team. Thank you all for caring so well for my friend."
