"Our mother resided in Knights' Grove for seven years, during which time she was assisted through her dementia journey. At each stage staff showed great care, empathy and compassion, subtly changing the way they provided support and care as her condition slowly deteriorated. In early September, it seemed she was starting to slip away. The staff showed their customary compassion, ensuring that she was comfortable and warm, and that although she was unable to appreciate her surroundings or respond, she was seldom alone for any length of time. We have always been fully appraised of her situation; in her final stages we were there most of the time. While caring for Mum, the staff also provided great support for us, ensuring that we required nothing, including drinks and food when we stayed overnight. The staff managed Mum’s passing with sympathy and empathy, providing comfort for the whole family. We could not have wished for better surroundings or people with whom Mum spent her final days."
