"The general environment of Ashley Gardens is most definitely good, it is always clean and tidy and so homely. I spend a lot of time in the main lounge where the activities happen, on my way to the lounge I often stop by the library area to choose a book."
"I do love my bedroom though, sometimes if I feel unwell the staff will help me to my room and pop in on me every 15 minutes to check I am ok. The staff here are wonderful, there is nothing they will not do for you.
Since living at Ashley Gardens I have learned skills I never knew I had, I am learning to paint and do flower arranging, Elaine (activities co-ordinator) is brilliant, she always thinks of different things for us to do!
My son and family are very happy that I am here and that I am so happy. It takes courage to leave your home but I settled within a matter of days. I have made some lovely friends here and I now call Ashley Gardens 'home sweet home'.”
Dear Mr. Karmali,
Following the death of my mother, Mrs. Ivy Sutcliffe, last Saturday, I write to thank you and all your staff for excellent care that she has consistently received during the two years and nine months that she has spent at Ashley Gardens.
We would all wish to live out our lives in our own home and depart peacefully at a time of our own choosing and Ivy was no exception to that. Short of that ideal, I can think of nowhere where she could possibly have been happier or received better attention and genuine affection than she did in your care and I offer my profound thanks and deep respect to you all for doing a difficult job with such cheerful professionalism.
I will be most grateful if you can let me have a list of all care staff, cooks and cleaners, so that I might have the pleasure of sending an individual thank you to everyone, through your office.
With kind regards, I remain,
Becki, Zoe and all the staff,
I just wanted to write and Thank you all for your care concern for Marjorie during the short time she spent in Ashley Gardens. As you may know she was very reluctant to go into a home but I am glad to say I think she enjoyed having the company and care of all the staff and her final months were as happy as it was possible to be in the circumstance.
Thank you once again,
To all our friends of Ashley Gardens a heartfelt thanks for all your help and the lovely flowers. It was all very much appreciated.
Just a brief note to say thank you to you and all of your staff. Your care of mum was first class and I know she was beginning to settle in well with you. When I visited her myself on the Friday before she died she was much as she was when she had been with us. I know that she very particularly was drawn to Sam, do thank him for his gentleness and care for Mum; I know it meant a lot to her.
I also want to thank the staffs who were on duty the night mum died. The way they cared for me and my two brothers was quite wonderful, they really did go out of their way to ease the situation we were facing. Their offer of help and providing for us that night were beyond what I would ever have imagined.
If they and Sam are typical of your staff and the kind of care that is received then you have a top class home, and staff that you can be proud of.
I also want to thank you personally for all your help and encouragement to mum and your dealing with us as a family. Once again thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Becki and Staff,
To say thank you for the care, kindness and consideration given to my mother Bessie Wilson whilst she was with you. She couldn’t have been better looked after in such a nice atmosphere. A special mention for Mark (although I don’t really want to single anyone out), mother seemed to have a special response to him due to his lovely way with her.
Kind regards to all,
All The staff of Ashley Gardens,
Thank you all for the kindness you have given in your case of pan. I know how much she appreciates what you are doing for her. She speaks from the heart when she tells me, frequently, how "lovely" you all are to her. Also, I appreciate the consideration that you have given to me.
Kind regards to all,
Dear Ashley Garden staff,
I wanted to thank you for taking such a good care of my grandparents, Bill and Marjorie Shinkins. Your smiles, kind words and hard work made their time at Ashley Gardens very special. We know that they were in good hands, everyday and in every way. The work you do is so important and so precious to families like ours. For this, you all have a special place in our hearts.
All the best,
Thank you for all your help and kindness to Clara while she was there. Hopefully I will see you all from time to time.
Becki and Staff,
Thank you and your caring staff for taking such good care of my precious Mum. I very much appreciate all of your help. Hoping Mum will be settled and contented in her new environment.
All the best,
To all at Ashley Gardens with thanks for looking after our dear old Mum! Best wishes.
Tony and Rosie Sutcliffe
Dear Becki and Zoe,
Thank you so much for a very enjoyable evening on Saturday. Pauline and I had a great time. Having organized such events in the past, I know how much hard work goes in. The evening was a huge success. Well done.
Also, Mum and I want to thank you for all the help and support you gave us, as well as Dad, during his stay at Ashley Gardens. It made a very emotional situation so much easier knowing he was in such good care.
It’s been a pleasure getting to know you both and Ashley gardens, and we hope we will be able to continue our support in the future. Thanks again for everything you’ve both done.
Doris & Jaret
