Testimonials – Macroom, Cork.

At CareChoice Macroom, we build a special relationship with each resident and their family. Here are some testimonials from the families of former residents.

In order to protect the privacy of residents and their families, we have not printed the names of those who provided these testimonials. The Director of Nursing at CareChoice Nursing Home, Macroom,Cork holds these details on file.

“For six years my brother was a patient at CareChoice Nursing Home Macroom, Cork. He was contented and peaceful and never had a negative word to say about it. We visited him frequently and always found him clean and well cared for in every aspect at all times. His privacy was respected. A time-table was displayed showing the activities and entertainments available. His every need was met, both in the order of nature and grace. When his condition deteriorated he was transferred to a room beside the nursing station for extra vigilance. His condition went from high dependency to total dependency. All this time his dignity was respected and the level of care was gentle and superb. I marvel at the nurses and carers and have no words to thank them.”

“Thank you all so much for all your loving care of Sr. Mary. I will never forget and forever appreciate the help, care and love, not just to Mary but to me, which made it so much easier during Mary’s final days.”

“Thanks to everyone of the staff for all the loving care you gave my mother and the joy she had at CareChoice Macroom in her last 15 months.”

“Thank you all so much for all your loving care of Sr. Mary. I will never forget and forever appreciate the help, care and love, not just to Mary but to me, which made it so much easier during Mary’s final days.”

“Only God himself could reward you for your gentle and gracious care of Denis for the past six years in CareChoice Nursing Home, Macroom. Each time we visited him we found him so well groomed, so neat and clean – he was happy and contented. He never liked the ‘exercises’ but he was never forced to participate. There was never a negative word, nor hint of complaint. We were happy in the knowledge that he was cared for and cherished. On behalf of our family, say a very sincere and heartlfelt thank you to each of you. May god continue to bless your caring hands and hearts.”
