Our mother, Laurel, has been a patient in Salvington Lodge for ten days, after being transferred from Worthing Hospital.
Since her arrival, she has been made to feel welcome and at ease and nothing has been too much trouble for the dedicated team of nurses, physios, occupational therapists and care staff.
She was given her own room – en-suite, flat-screen TV – and an amazing menu of dishes to eat. Plus, two very attractive gardens to sit in and a hairdressing salon that I was able to use to help mum feel good about herself again.
We have compared it to a five-star hotel – absolutely amazing. Everyone has worked patiently and cheerfully in giving our mum back her independence following a fall and we are very grateful to all.
A special mention must go to Jo Robinson, the sister of Ferring ward, who always had a smile on her face and was there to answer any questions that we may have had. Also, of course, the very handsome Raymond, a staff nurse who was polite and kind and made mum’s day whenever he walked into the room. Also, dear Rita Newman, a healthcare assistant, a sweet, kind lady and, everyone, actually, who we came into contact with. A very big thank-you to you all, from Laurel’s daughters Marian and Lynn, and our families.
