Reviewer Connection to Dolywern
Submitted from a Postal Card by G G on Monday 15 February 2016. Relates to February 2016.
My daughter was a resident at "The Chesh" for 15 years. She was severely disabled with CP and was also totally deaf, making any communication extremely difficult. From day one every member of staff went the extra mile to give her wonderful care to enable her to have as full a life as possible.
My daughter rapidly became a fully participating member of the Dolywern family and I was always kept informed by phone to her needs and progress.
(I live 70 miles away) and was always warmly welcomed by staff when I visited, usually 2 times weekly. Sadly in 2015 my daughter developed cancer and was nursed to the very end with total love, devotion and dedication. I cannot speak too highly of this wonderful home. If only every home were like this, the "care world" would be perfect.
