Comments from service users

‘Very much pleased with the Day Care Service. I enjoy coming to the centre and meet other people from my own community. I am able to read, chat, socialise and take part in various activities organised by the centre. Staff is very helpful and polite and treat us with respect and dignity. I love the food which is prepared in Indian style. I don’t need to depend on my family members. I am very grateful to the day care staff.’ – J.M.

‘Mrs P is extremely happy with the service you provide at the community centre. The staff are all really friendly and kind to her, she cannot ask for anymore better service. Thank you. – K.P.

‘The staff and carers of the Luncheon Club are good. The carers are very helpful and nice. They are dedicated to their job and to the elderly people.’ – P.G.

‘The community centre has been a godsend. It has rejuvenated my mother. Further more she has encouraged others in their neglected twilight years to attend. That is singularly an enormous transformation for them. From a grimace to smiles. Long may the facility continue.’ – R.K.
