"Our lovely dad moved into Woodend in May 2019 following 3 months in hospital where he was extremely poorly. We thought his stay at Woodend would be short as he was so frail. After a short time, Dad was up and about cracking jokes and making friends. Family visited daily until Covid hit then, like many, his 'family' were the care team at Woodend. They were all brilliant, putting our minds at rest. Dad continued to remain well until a few months ago, he slowly started to decline. The team at Woodend have treated him with so much love, dignity and respect, they followed Dad's wishes not to go into hospital and to be cared for at Woodend. Mum visited Dad and she too was added to the Woodend 'family' which gave her so much strength. During his final days family visited continually and we were supported so well. We stayed over for three nights and again the staff were amazing. Sadly, Dad passed away this week. We cannot fault the care and attention Dad received both in life and beyond. Thank you."
