Give credit for great job

Have your say

With reference to the article in the Sunderland Echo on Thursday September 10 and the comment “Must Do Better”.

I feel that your headline is very harsh and could have been entitled much better.

My mother has been in Dovecote Meadow since June 8 this year and the care that she has received has been exemplary.

The carers do a very difficult and demanding job, working long hours, sometimes with dementia patients and by and large do a fantastic job.

Obviously, in a facility the size of Dovecote and its number of occupants standards are not always going to be 100%.

Okay, they can improve in some areas but which facility does not have areas of improvement?

Give them credit for the great job that they do under sometimes very difficult circumstances.
