Age UK estimate that by 2030 this will have increased to 21.8% of the population. This inevitably means that there will be an increase in people living in private and state social care.

"Dad greatly appreciated the professionalism, compassion and genuine kindness demonstrated by all The Dower House staff who cared for him"

"On behalf of my family, I am writing to thank you and all your colleagues for the wonderful care you gave our Father. Dad greatly appreciated the professionalism, compassion and genuine kindness demonstrated by all The Dower House staff who cared for him. It wasn’t an easy decision for him to move to The Dower House but the way he was looked after quickly reassured him, and us, that it was the right one. It brings us great comfort that Dad was with people he knew and who cared about him on the last leg of his journey. As a family we are also very grateful for the kindness and care you extended to us. The smiles, kind words and hugs meant so much. We knew that you would take good care of Dad but the care we all received went far beyond that."
