" I will always remember her kindness"

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I was at Heather House. I don’t know what her title was and I can’t remember her name, but I will never forget how kind and understanding she was, she gave me the best advice I could have had.

I was struggling with knitting and baking, which I have been doing ever since I was young, and she told me don’t struggle trying to do the same as you have always done. She said, “Buy a cake and a jumper, don’t struggle and upset yourself”.

She was the loveliest girl and I will always be so grateful to her. I wish I could remember her name but I will always remember her kindness.
