Helen also wanted to thank all the staff at Bristol Glen for making her stay a memorable one, especially her ‘favorites’ (and you know who you are) the helpers on the 3rd floor who looked after her with love and dignity, and the fabulous Activity Crew / manicure including her adopted granddaughter!
