“I am writing on behalf of G and family to thank the wonderful and dedicated staff at Essential Nursing for the exceptional care provided for our precious G since September 2011. She was able to enjoy good quality, professional and compassionate care and her three carers were exceptional. They treated G with dignity and respect and became very fond of her.”
