“The nursing staff, or ‘Ashgate Angels’ as I call them, are unbelievable. They’re there to help you get better and aren’t just working for the pay cheque at the end of the month. They’re all very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.”
"The nurses and volunteers were lovely too – they would sit and chat with us and they even sang him ‘Happy Birthday’ on his birthday! The nurses cater to each specific person and will talk and get to know the person. It’s a lot more personal than what we’d have gotten in hospital."

“If mum said she wanted a gin and tonic, the nurses would get her one. She was really picky with her food as well so they would make things especially for her. It was nice to know she was being looked after so well because the staff actually had the time to care for her.”
“George can’t wait to see Pam because she looks after him and his needs. They’ll have a cup of tea and a chat together and George will reminisce about the past. He looks forward to it and she keeps him happy."
