As a family we still feel so grateful for the outstanding care Mum received that week at Saffron Gardens. To be with her right to the end like that is what we had always wanted for Mum. As a permanent mark of our thanks we felt moved to donate a thank you plaque for the care team to display in the nursing court where Mum stayed.
