Our fears were dispelled

"My Mum Win was a resident in Boars Tye residential home for over eight years. Like most people we were apprehensive at first but our fears were soon dispelled as Mum settled in very quickly and accepted her situation. She was suffering from Parkinsons Disease but with the kindness of the carers she was able to have a quality of life. Often when we visited she would say she had had a lovely dinner and always looked forward to her meals. She also made friends with other residents and had a good laugh with them and with the carers also. We were often witness to this and we also joined in the banter and the carers became our friends as well. Most of the carers were there when Mum first went into the home which helped enormously for her to see familiar faces all the time. She also enjoyed the entertainment and parties etc. which we also were able to be part of. The last few months her health deteriorated and the carers were wonderful. She was bedridden but was always clean, as was the bed clothes, no matter what time we visited. The carers came in to see her when they finished and started their shifts to say hello and goodbye as well as looking after her during their shifts. We can honestly say it wasn’t just care - it was love - and we would recommend any of our relatives or friends who had to go into a home to go to Boars Tye. We would also have no fear in putting ourselves in there if the need arose." Christine Fairchild (Daughter)
