To the residents and staff I worked with.

Thank you for the friendship and memories.

I will treasure them always.


Want to live there permanently

Dear Belinda, Lesley, all the Carers’ especially Margaret G and the Kitchen Staff

Thank you for your care and understanding. I was most impressed with the standard at Cairnfield House.

So sad that I can’t get funding as would love to come and live there permanently.

All my love



To Belinda, RNs & Staff at Cairnfield House Hospital

Our grateful and heartfelt thanks to you all for the care of our loved brother while he was at Cairnfield. Although his stay was short we felt he was kindly and well managed despite the challenges her presented. Kindest regards from all his family.



“Thanks to Cairnfield House, and the staff of the Kowhai Wing for their loving care.

Staff Appreciation


I want to acknowledge the privilege I felt working with your staff recently. I was so impressed with their insights and caring for the patients. Their attention to detail and the little kindnesses they offered in their work was touching.  Often people are quick to criticise care these days but often much goes unseen. Please pass these comments to the staff.
