"My mother's care at Ferryfield House"

About: Ferryfield House

(as a relative),

My mother died here in the early days of 2012. The staff could not have been more supportive to mum, my brother and myself.

A few days beforehand a senior member of staff explained the much maligned Liverpool Pathways to us. We could not have asked for more dignity and respect.

Our mother had been receiving excellent, not always perfect, but kind nursing and care here for a long time. I still cry when I think of these times. They were difficult but so much is expected of the staff.

Mum might have enjoyed more of their time, their company but that is what family is for.

Patient care and dignity is our top priority and I am pleased to see that has been your experience.

I will pass on your comments to the team at Ferryfield and I know they will be grateful to hear it.
