Mum was always very happy at Dounemount and always appreciated the care you gave her with such good humour.
It brought me comfort to see that she had many occasions when she had fun, laughter and enjoyed life.
I just wanted to thank you and your staff team for the care and attention given to John in the short time he spent at Dounemount, we very much appreciate this.
The staff at Dounemount were always friendly and helpful. I know that she enjoyed her stay whilst she was able to be up. I was impressed with the standard of nursing care once she became unable to get up.

I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
