"review of a carer"

About: Ashford Hospital

, My father is 90 and rather frail now,he had a cataract operation recently,which unfortunately happened the day after my mums funeral. I quietly told a nurse and very kindly and discreetly dad was seen to first. All the staff including the consultant have always treated my dad with the utmost respect,i have nothing but praise. The only problem is the waiting area,the chairs are very poor for an elderly person,dad needs arms on a chair to lever himself up,he gets very embarassed at nurses trying to haul him up.So please for the dignity of the elderly get a few chairs with arms.
