Dear Sarah and staff
Many, many thanks for all the loving care you showed Dad during his short stay at Elkington House Care Home. Whilst with you many of his friends came to visit and they have all individually said to me what a wonderful care home and how lucky Dad was to spend his last few months with.

Dear Sarah and all the wonderful staff at Elkington House.
Just wanted you all to know I truly appreciate how amazing you’ve all been with my Nan. The Love, care and attention you’ve shown her has been nothing short of outstanding. Everything from the bubbly atmosphere in the home, to the beautiful food the kitchen staff cook, has been fantastic! Thanks for always making me feel welcome and the rest of my family too… Most importantly, thanks for making Nan’s last few years very happy ones!!!

Dear Sarah and all the staff at Elkington House
Thank you never seems to be enough to express our feelings for the love and care you gave my mum and us on our visits to see her. You made mum’s last few years a warm, friendly and exceptionally caring.
