To all at Cumberworth Lodge,
Thank you so much for the way you have cared for my nana during her time with you. You allowed her dignity and respect to the end, you are all so very kind and caring.
Dear staff at Cumberworth Lodge,
I am writing to thank you all for the excellent manner in which you have cared for my nana during her time with you. My nana, Margaret McGlashan, was the most generous, kind and fun-loving lady who dedicated most of her life looking after others.
As part of my job role I visit many nursing homes, I can honestly say Cumberworth Lodge is excellent. It is lovely in presentation yet clean and professionally run. The staff treat all the residents with upmost dignity and respect at all times which I appreciate can often be challenging. I couldn't have picked a nicer home for my nana to spend her final years.
I am incredibly grateful for the way in which you didn't judge me and have treated me with great kindness.
To Maurice, Kum, John and all staff at Cumberworth Lodge,
Just to say how grateful I am for the care and affection shown to my mother in the last 2 years. Both Chris and I have appreciated the freedom this gave in the knowledge that she was looked after so well.
This little card seems so inadequate, so I have now put pen to paper again to add a few thoughts.
My mum was in your care for almost 2 years and was looked after very well by one and all. The caring homely atmosphere of Cumberworth is very special and is due to good leadership and to the detailed and loving attention of all the staff. Excellent standards through training but above all, heartfelt concern in often difficult circumstances...are to be praised!
I was sorry that timings of events were such that our little staff panto never reached fruition...it would have been fun.
I hope you can all decipher this scribble...it is just a reiteration of my gratitude, so thank you again.
Many thanks to all who provided personal care for Lillian in her final very happy months at Cumberworth Lodge. Please pass on our gratitiude to all who contributed in any way. To see her enjoyment of life after all those years lived in the shadows was wonderful. The relativly simple basic things were much appreciated by Lillian and she got such a kick from wearing bright coordinated clothing and having her hair and nails done - leading her to being the centre of attention at times! Thank you also for helping with Peppa (the cat) - probably the single most important factor in Lillian being able to fully settle and relax into life at Cumberworth Lodge where she truly flourished in her final months in response to the kindness shown by you all.
Best wishes, Jane.
To all the Cumberworth Lodge staff,
I wanted just to say a big thank you to you all for the wonderful care mum received whilst living at Cumberworth. She was shown great dignity right up until the end and the care given to her was second to none. Thank you doesn't seem enough, for the extra time I had with my mum, seeing her happy and settled, even flirting with the guys warms my heart. You are all very special individuals to take the time to care.
My family will never forget how kind and considerate you all were. Love to you all.
Grateful thanks, Pat, Graham, Jonathan & Billy
