To All the Staff at Abbeyfield Tamar House
How do we start to express our thanks to you, as thank you doesn't seem enough for all you have done for mum over the last few days.
She had the most wonderful 100th birthday any lady could possibly wish for, and a massive part of it was thanks to you. We think she will remember this for the rest of her life, you have made her a very happy lady.
We know how much effort went into making her birthday the success it was, as these things do not happen without it. We also know that people came in on their day off to be there, and everyone made a tremendous contribution.
All her friends who attended the party said what a wonderful atmosphere the home has, and they felt it the moment they walked in the door. As the afternoon progressed they were even more impressed with the care and attention that was given to her and the other residents, way beyond the call of duty.
The balloons, banners and flower decorations were wonderful, the lunch spread was fantastic and the cake was amazing, which all contributed to a wonderful day. It was a lovely idea to ask Brian the entertainer to contribute. It was touching to see the photos of Nell in her youth and the songs that he sang went down well with everyone.
It was lovely that the residents were included as they have become her friends and it was a real family atmosphere which was perfect.
We know mums 100th birthday was a very special occasion, but the reason she was able to enjoy it so much is the way she has been treated since she joined the permanent residence of Tamar House in July 2016. We know she wouldn't have enjoyed her birthday so much if she had been living elsewhere.
Our grateful thanks go out to you all, for the every day care you show not only to mum, but to all the residents. Love seems to be a very important part of this, which to us is the way it should be.
Thank you all again, although those 2 words are still not enough to express our gratitude.
You have made an old lady very, very happy, and her Daughter and Grand-daughter very relieved that we found you (How lucky we are!)
Bless you all
Love Denise and Beccy
