  • Our two Nurses were Ann Wells and Dorothea Hohnstedt. Ann arrived when we were at breaking point desperately needing help. The difference she made from her immediate arrival was quite simply life changing mostly for my father. Dorothea followed Ann’s 2 weeks which we were trepidacious about as the 2 weeks previously had been so much calmer for us all as Ann fitted in so well. We needn't have worried as Dorothea was wonderful too.

    Both nurses would come very highly recommended by us all.
