Thank you for the care and pro­fes­sion­al­ism

Grocott's Mail - - MAKANA VOICES -

Our mom, Thelma Schoonbee (82) passed away on 26 De­cem­ber 2016. We want to make use of this op­por­tu­nity to thank the fol­low­ing peo­ple:

Doc­tors Gains­ford and Swanepoel for the years you were al­ways avail­able to as­sist us – es­pe­cially the past five months. Dr Swanepoel was avail­able at any given mo­ment – at home, in hos­pi­tal and at Brook­shaw.

He not only took care of our mother but was also a big in­spi­ra­tion to the fam­ily.

Guardmed Am­bu­lance Ser­vice – you guys (and a lady) were amaz­ing, friendly, pro­fes­sional and your re­sponse was quick. Our mom was sta­bilised and in hos­pi­tal within 20 min­utes. You were also there to as­sist us in mov­ing her from hos­pi­tal to Brook­shaw Frail Care. Keep up the good work.

Brook­shaw staff - the sis­ters and carers - we are grate­ful that you, at short no­tice, were able to as­sist us in tak­ing care of our mother. You all treated her with dig­nity and even tried your ut­most to let her eat af­ter we had al­ready given up. Our mom en­joyed your friend­li­ness and your com­pas­sion­ate care.

Thank you for your ex­cel­lent ser­vice. You will al­ways be in our prayers, as it is a tough job to take care of old, frag­ile, help­less peo­ple.
