The following sentiments came from a family member following the death of her mother recently:
'I have been blessed to be part of the Emmaus family during the past two and a half years as mum lived with you all. It is the little things that make it special – the gentle hug, the personal chat that comes with the cuppa, the beautiful garden, the clean areas that she always noticed, the special piano, the amazing personal care … and my support!'
And another family who wrote:
'Mum’s final years with her Emmaus family were made happier because of the love and care she received from everybody. In particular I want to thank all the staff members who cared for her during her final days and did it with such love and tenderness. As well they extended their care to all the members of our family who greatly appreciated it, especially as we realised that you were losing a member of your community too.'
