Grateful that I chose Saxonwood

I READ with interest the letter published regarding Saxonwood Care Home.

I too had a relative resident in there and, despite her frailty at the end of her life, she lived to be 105.

The manager and staff worked ceaselessly to keep and look after her until she passed away in October.

I will be eternally grateful that, of all the places that she may have ended her days in, I chose Saxonwood to be her final home.

As Margaret Read pointed out, in this day and age, when we are far too happy to complain, you rarely see letters of congratulation for a job well done.

My thanks and congratulations go to Vafa Hurst and her band of dedicated workers.
