Dear Nightingales....

Nightingales visit my parents, both in their nineties, once a day at tea time.   Both of them now look forward to this visit and the social contact it brings them.  The carers are always willing to have a chat with them as well as carrying out their allotted tasks.  There are regular review meetings involving me, my parents and Neil to discuss their changing needs and how best to deal with these.  From the beginning, I have found Nightingales very reliable, helpful, sensitive and flexible and would have no hesitation in recommending their services. Best wishes, Cathy
