Sheps Day Centre – From a relative, Nov 2017

In October 2016 my mother, at the age of 95, entered hospital for the first time in her life. Over the next 3 months there was a decline in her general health, physical capability, motivation and positivity. Despite care assistance it quickly became obvious that she was longer capable of independent living. In January she became a resident at Rayner House and Yew Trees Ltd.

ALL employees have been excellent, led by the wonderful Caroline Finlay, who is compassionate and understanding. She aims for each resident to have some enjoyment and to be as comfortable as possible at this stage in their lives.

Her philosophy and work ethic is shared.

My mother is content and VERY comfortable. I could not ask for better.
