Letter of Praise for The Fairway Care Home

The Fairway receive many letters of praise from families, but a letter received recently really made them feel proud of the care they deliver. The letter read as follows;

Dear Ionie,

What do you want from a residential care home? Your answers will be completely different from your loved one who is to live there, but The Fairway for me, and especially for my Mother ticked ALL the boxes. She was fiercely independent and didn't mix. Everyone at the home took this in their stride. They even allowed her to keep her budgie.
