Andrew’s story

“Between February 2007 and September 2009 I must have visited Compton over 100 times visiting my Dad, and then more long term with my Mom. I will never forget a Healthcare Assistant called Adrian who looked after my Dad every day – he washed and shaved him like he was his own father. He was a very kind person.
“We wanted to help Compton Care (and get fitter in the process) so did some research and followed the Couch to 5k app. After five weeks of running round the garden, we then went outside to run at 5:30am to avoid anyone seeing us! After nine weeks, we were running 5k, which eventually became longer and faster runs of 10k plus. We’re now fitter than ever and have lost nearly 3 stone between us!
“I can’t put my finger on the secret recipe that Compton has. When you get out of the car, past the beautiful gardens, and excellent staff on Reception, you just think ‘this feels right’.
“I was fortunate that my parents received priceless care and attention during their time under Compton’s care, and I can’t thank the people there enough.
“Compton’s reputation is first class and on my daily visits I felt almost at peace that I was doing the very best for both my parents. I would strongly recommend anyone to visit, and witness the expert facilities that Compton has to offer, and even sign up to become a volunteer.”
