Dear all at Oxford House

Thank you all for the care and kindness you all showed my Mum over the last few years at Oxford House. It is always a difficult decision to leave a loved one in the care of someone else but I know now we had no need to be worried as the staff were like a second family to my Mum.

Thank you all so much

Mrs M's family wish to thank all the staff of Oxford House who cared for her from 2003 until she passed away on ......2010, just nine days before her 80th birthday. Your patience, compassion, understanding and love made her feel comfortable, safe and secure in her last years, and for that we will be eternally grateful. We are fully aware that some of you may have been on the receiving end of Mum's temper once in a while (probably more often than that!); if so, we hope you know that she had a great deal of affection for each and every one of you and she frequently commented on how lovely you were. In fact, she became so attached to the people of Oxford House that she was reluctant to leave the place that had become her home, even for the shortest of periods. It's comforting to know she was so happy and content during the most vulnerable time of her life.

In addition, thanks for the warm welcome we always received while visiting both our parents at Oxford House; we hope to see you all again very soon.

Best regards,

Keith & Wadsana, Robert & Christine

Dear All

I would like to thank everyone for the care bestowed upon my Aunt in the time she was at Oxford House.

She unfailingly always praised the staff everytime we visited her and we were very confident that she was always properly looked after.

Thank you again.

I cannot speak too highly of the staff at Oxford House and the care which they provided to my Mother. They treat her with dignity and respect and show her genuine affection in a way that cannot be faked. My wife and I know that when she is no longer with you we will have the considerable comfort of knowing that she was well cared for in a happy and relaxed atmosphere. In looking after Mum staff also involve us as part of the process and take into account our needs, making us feel that we are also part of caring for her.

Thank you. You are an inspiration to how older people should be looked after.

Dear Angela & Staff

Just a little note to express our sincere thanks to you all your staff at Oxford House for caring for Doris R over the past five years. We could be naming special people especially those that Mum, due to her blindness could recognise the voice and sense their dedication and kindness to her, but you all work as a team and therefore our heartfelt thanks go to you all.

Please pass these thanks on to Rita and Karan who often prepared different food in the kitchen to encourage Mum to eat, which was so appreciated by us.

A special thank you from me (Linda) for the kindness shown to me from the staff on duty last weekend and for all the cups of tea, that bhelped me get through this very sad time.

All that is left for me to say is Thank You All So Very Much - we will never forget your care and kindness to our Mum & My Wife and special thanks for always making us feel welcome.

Love, thanks and very best wishes to you all,

Linda, Keith and Percy

To ALL the staff at Oxford House

The purpose of this letter is to thank you all for the care and consideration in looking after Avril.

Although it may have seemed that she was always complaining we know that she was truly appreciative of the care that she got from the Oxford House Team.

We would like to echo those sentiments and thank you for making her last year comfortable, amusing and caring.

Thank you so much,

Love, thanks and very best wishes to you all,

Jo & Brian

Hi Angela

Thanks you so much for offering the room so that we can celebrate Mum's 90th Birthday. We would be very please to accept and wonder if the 6th February would be suitable. If so could we start at 2:30pm. Obviously we understand that we would not be able to use the kitchen but if we provide milk, tea, coffee and suger etc would your staff be willing to make our guests drinks. We will bring the food and cake plus paper plates ans serviettes.

Is there a maximum amount of people that could come?

I will speak with you next time I see you, thanks again

regards Val

Dear Everybody at Oxford House

On behalf of Eric, Richard and myself I would like to say how extremely touched we were to see you at St Mary's Church, Farnham Royal for the funeral of our Mother on Friday. It was a beautiful Thanksgiving Service given by the Rev. Graham Saunders and Mum would have been very proud. She also would have loved the Tribute given by Rev. Jeremy Sewell (Jem) and had a little chuckle in certain passages for sure!. (We were sorry not to see you afterwards but of course understand why you were unable to come to the refreshments)....

It goes without saying we also are very grateful for all the care, love and respect you showed to our Mum during the time she was at Oxford House - so much appreciated by us all .......

Meanwhile, we hope we can keep in touch in some way and cannot thank you enough for the support you have all given in this very difficult period for the family.

Very appreciatively yours and with love from

Eric (and Jenny), Richard (and Christine), Pam (and Bob) x x x

Dear Angela and all the staff at Oxford House

Carol and Michelle would like to thank you all for your comfort and kindness on the passing of our dear Mum.

Although Mum's stay was a short one, in that time we saw how dedicated staff were to their duties.

This thank you extends to you, Angela, and your wonderful, caring and compassionate team who tended mum and kept Carol and me in teas and coffee and biscuits.

Thank you

Dear Angela,

I would like to thank you and all the staff at Oxford House for the sensitive support provided to myself and my parents over Dad's stroke. The sensitive texts I received from you while I was on holiday were very reasuring, Angela, thank you; they must have taken a long time to compose.

Thank you for understanding and responding to Mum's distress at Dad's absence by going over and beyond duty of care by taking her to visit Dad in hospital.

I know they both really appreciated this gesture. Above all I am further reminded that I am not alone in the care, support and responsibility of my parents.

Thank you all so much.

Best wishes
