"They help to make my time with them very enjoyable"

About: Fife Day Care Services

(as a service user),

When my dear husband died from a severe shock in February 2011, my youngest son asked me to stay with him and his family. I sold my house and and car and moved down from Peterhead to stay with them in Lochgelly. I was in such a dark, lonely and unhappy state of mind and thought my world had come to an end.... Sadly this was not the case, as my middle son died 7 months later. It was a year I never wish to endure again..... Then one day my daughter-in-law passed the Fife Elderly Care offices, and thought I might like to join... It was the best thing I'd done since coming to Fife... The staff are wonderful, both kind, caring. It took only a short while for me to feel that I was accepted into their group. I cannot say how great all of the staff are....and there is nothing that needs improving... They all go about their duties with cheerfulness...the meals are excellent [all made by the staff] and the volunteers help to make my time with them very enjoyable.
