"He (my father) felt like he was treated like a king... He was 93 when he died and was not mobile for much of the last 2 years ... he felt that he was looked after as well as any member of the royal family. My father's last years were made happy by the support he received here and my own life (as an only child) was able to continue with the support of Stanbridge House" Show less
