James and I wanted to send a little note of huge thanks for not only the brilliant end result that you have arranged for Gerald, but more so for the comforting, counselling, understanding, time and support you have given our family.
Thank you very much for your prompt, professional and caring service. Doug has settled in well and is very happy. This is a great relief for me and my sister, Colleen, who were very concerned about making these big decisions about Doug's future. We know that the move was timely and we are very grateful that a vacancy was offered to us in such a short time.

Thank you so much for all your help, we couldn't have done it without you. We are very happy with St Louis, the care is wonderful. I am back from my trip to the US, much rested and ready for the path ahead.
We are truly grateful to you for all your help with mum. I know this would not have been possible without your assistance. It is certainly a distressing time but you have made it very much easier for all of us and we all thank you.
