Letter: Top marks for Wimborne hospital and care home
I AM writing to praise the staff at Wimborne Hospital and Streets Meadow Care Home. There is always negative press about the care that the elderly receive nowadays, but Wimborne has two fantastic facilities that we should all very proud of.
Wimborne Hospital offers a wide variety of services. Outpatient clinics, blood clinics, X-ray, physiotherapy and occupational therapy departments, theatres and a rehabilitation care for the elderly ward. My mother, who sadly passed away in July, received excellent care from all of these departments over the years. As a local elderly person, it is so much easier to go to a local hospital rather than to the larger Poole or Bournemouth Hospitals. It is thanks to the excellent care given to my mum, that she managed to remain in her own home until the age of 85. Only then did she need more help and we were very lucky that she was able to spend her last nine months in Streets Meadow.
Everyone there is so kind, friendly and supportive. She felt safe there, and the care is excellent. Everyone is treated as an individual and it really feels like home. It is a local home for local people, and I hope that the Wimborne community continue to support both Streets Meadow and Wimborne Hospital, so that they can continue to provide the excellent work that they do in serving our local community.
