By Michael M (Son of Resident) 25/10/2018, Blair Park Care Home in Sittingbourne

I am writing to thank you and your staff for organising such a wonderful party for mu mothers 90th birthday. She had a marvellous time as did the family and it was good that we were able to help celebrate the other two birthdays that occurred on the same day. What a great party atmosphere! Everything combined to make a memorable time. The entertainment, the mayors visit, the flowers, balloons, cake and food....and the Sherry! Above all what made the day so special was the way staff worked so hard to ensure that everyone had such a good birthday experience. Thank you all.

By Marlene R & John R (Neice & Nephew of Resident) 18/09/2018, Blair Park Care Home in Sittingbourne

A big thank you to all the staff at Blair Park for the care our loved one received from you during her stay. She was always so well looked after and we know just how much she appreciated your thoughtfulness and consideration of her needs. We know you have a very difficult job to do and it takes special people like you to maintain such a high level of care, sometimes in very touch circumstances. In recent years, as her dementia took a greater and greater toll on her life, she was no longer the special lady we all knew and loved, but you all continued to care for her. For this we thank you so much for.

By Alan M (Son of Resident) 24/11/2018, Blair Park Care Home in Sittingbourne
