“I would like to thank you and all your team at St Catherine’s Manor for their kindness, compassion, understanding and friendliness shown when looking after my Mother during the last few months of her life. Only a few days before she died a couple of the residents were talking over lunch about how happy they were in St Catherine’s. Mum was asked directly by someone If she was happy to which she replied ‘I am happy"
Our sincere thanks.
“Following the recent death of my father I would like to put on record our sincere thanks to all the staff at St Catherines.
