Old Rectory in Stickney
We received this very lovely feedback from Jane after her sister-in-law stayed with them for a few days.
“I would like to give you a little background about my sister in law Esme, so you can appreciate my comments.
Esme has Cerebral Palsy, is 72 years old & lives with her brother & I. We are full-time carers for her & have not had a break (not even a day) for over 2 years. She has severe speech problems & doesn`t socialize very well.
She has been at the Old Rectory for a week & her brother & I was dreading fetching her today, expecting her to say “I`m not going in care again!!”. How wrong could we be!
She has had a wonderful time, won`t shut up about it, she mixed, went out on a trip, even danced! We are both in shock!.
This is a true testament to Sarah & her staff for how they have looked after her, & she has asked to go back again. We cannot thank them all enough. I hope they get the recognition they deserve & to thank them so much.”
