Thank you from relative I didn’t get the name of the young lady who I saw yesterday with my mum but I wanted to say a huge thank you for her kindness and patience. It was great to see mum and even though her cognition has been dialled down a little after the seizure, she looked great and has even put on a little bit of weight since I last saw her. Thank you for taking such great care of mum throughout all of this. She couldn’t be in better hands x
