Mike’s Story

My father was a man of great principles and a most generous man who loved us as much as he could with his 1940’s and 1950’s upbringing!

Mike Gregory and familyMy family, Mum, my sister and Dad all lived together, so when Dad became ill and needed more personal care we were all there to care for him, attend to his needs and look after Mum too.

But there came a time when my father required care throughout the night – someone to be awake for him – someone to give him pain relief and to be a companion for him during those dark hours. We were truly amazed that Treetops could give us so much love and care at no cost to ourselves.

My Mum and sister would usually be up in the night so it was wonderfully helpful when the nurse arrived and we could have a few hours of valuable rest. The nurses became very special to us and happily, us to them. They very quickly became family which was lovely in our time of utter need, knowing the inevitable outcome in the near future. We opened our arms to their support.

The most memorable moment was the night Dad died. The nurse who was with us at that time was full of compassion, warmth and understanding. We couldn’t have wished for a lovelier person to be with us as he passed away.

Our loving and grateful thanks to you all.

Michael Gregory and family.
