I would just like to say thank you to you all for the kindness you showed me while I was with you. I am feeling much better now and intend it to stay that way.  Thank you all very much. Wishing you all the best.

I just want to say how much I appreciate all of you for the love and care you gave to my mother Kathleen during her stay in Lovat House.

When the time came that I was unable to look after myself and had to ask for help I could not have found safer hands to pass my mother to.  At last she is pain free and at peace.

You will always be in my heart with my mum

I shall never forget the love and care you gave my mother until the very end of her life.

God bless you.

Out of all the care homes I’ve visited during my 10 years this is the care home with the most loyal and consistent staff, which is a credit to both Ian the owner and Fiona the manager.

Lovat House, Fiona the Manager and I enjoy a good rapport and communicate comfortably with one another.  They have also consistently paid me on time over the 10 year which is a big plus working in any care home, and it makes me pleased to work alongside them and feel respected.

Mum and I would like to thank you and your wonderful team for making Mum’s 100thbirthday celebrations so memorable. Everyone was so kind and attentive to make Doris feel very special both on her “special” birthday and on her celebration day with her family and friends.  And a big thank you to you all for making Doris’s visitors so very welcome to her wonderful home.

To All the Staff

The family would like to say “Thank you so much” for looking after mum (Dot) for the last 3 years.  It was good to know she had care 24 hours a day and be part of an extended family set up.

Very much appreciated.

I would like to thank all the staff at Lovat House for the care given to my mother, Ivy, during her short stay with you.

I appreciate the help and care that she received.

Fiona, Ian and all staff and residents at Lovat House

Thank you for your generous gifts of wine and jewellery at my last session at Lovat House just before Christmas, and also for your warm works of appreciation which were very touching indeed.

“Au Revoir” rather than “Goodbye” – I will be in touch in January.

Sue (Motivation)

I still think of you all and thank all of you for the care and consideration and affection you showed mum especially in her last few days. I hope to come to see you personally in the meantime. Thank you.


Thank you all so much for your kindness and care of Alice during the past few weeks. Also your support and guidance to the family over the final days were much appreciated.  Bless you all.


To All Staff: May I take this opportunity to say a big “THANK YOU” to you all for the care shown to my mum whilst she was staying with you. You made my special holiday worry free knowing mum would be well cared for.  She thoroughly enjoyed herself and the company it did her a power of good.  It is nice to know there are such caring people who make such a difference to our senior citizens.  Thank you again.

To Fiona, Alison and all the team at Lovat House

Thank you all for the compassion, care and dignity you gave to Colin.

Despite all the problems you had with his ex-wife you always looked after Colin ensuring his comfort and wellbeing.

You always kept us informed of any changes in his health and ensured that he was not alone when he was on his last journey.

Thank you all for caring for Colin.

Denis and Lorraine Binge (Brother)

You all cared from the heart and not because it was your job. You were so kind to grandad and to me and my family too. I know grandad grew close to some of you and thought a lot of you. Thank you so very much for everything. With love.


Dear Friends, It has now been three weeks since Dad died and we miss him so very much. Since he moved to Lovat House we were able to spend more time together which was lovely.  He was very happy with being so close to us and for the care and kindness he received from you all.  I cannot thank you enough for the attention he received.  He loved having his tomatoes and beans this summer and being out in the garden.  A simple pleasure provided by you that means so much to him.  Our sincere thanks to you all.
