My dear Dad, John, spent the last 3 months of his life at Docking House in Docking, diagnosed with early stage Vascular Dementia he was towards the end, confined entirely to his bed and unable to do anything for himself as his muscles refused to work for him.
I cannot thank the staff at Docking House enough for all they did for him and for my Mum who visited daily. The 25 men and women who worked there all played some role at some time in caring for my dad. They always had a smile on their faces, a kind word and treated my dad with such respect, care and love during his stay.
Many a time when myself or family called by to see Dad, there was someone with him, feeding him, holding his hand, patting his arm, shaving him. Always so gentle and loving towards him.
Toward the end, Dad needed to be turned in bed every 2 hours, this was done with respect and care and I know my Dad felt the same love for them as they felt for him.
When he passed away peacefully, the staff on duty raced into his room to pay their respects, some of them over come with emotion even a day later when I came by to clear his room.
Their love and devotion was incredible and never once did I have any concerns for my Dad during his stay there.
On that last day, mum stayed through the night and was given food and drinks and checked in on regularly.
I would not hesitate to recommend Docking House to anyone looking for a home for their loved one in their time of need.
I would like to extend my most grateful thanks to all the staff there for being so very good at their jobs that you forgot they were working, so effortless and pleasurable did it seem, their care of my darling Daddy. Thank you all. Gail Gordon ( nee, Evans) xx
