I WOULD like to thank the support workers on Beaulieu Ward at the Western Community Hospital in Southampton, particularly Ida, Cheryl, Alison, Jan and all the other support workers and nurses that have shown my mum so much kindness and caring in the five months she has been on the ward. This kindness extends to the family as well.

Without these people, my mum’s stay would have been so much more stressful and upsetting. These people do a wonderful, and probably thankless, job. Without them I don’t know what I would have done. Mum and I are so grateful. Thank you for all you do.
