To Issy Geshen management. About 2 weeks ago we sadly buried our brother Louis Gabaye who was one of the residents there. I just want to reach out and thank you for the amazing care you provided my brother over the last 4 years. I know I speak on behalf of the whole family when I say that your devotion and kindness made those final weeks far more bearable for him. It's a great comfort to know that he was so well looked after up until the end, and we're truly grateful for that. May the Lord continue to bless you and your team for your unfailing service to the community.

We are pleased with the care our mother has received at Issy Geshen. Since she joined, there has been a great improvement in her condition. It is evident that the nurses are well trained in caring for people living with dementia.

The Home has been my saving grace. I am treated well and enjoy being amongst my peers. I enjoy being useful and like to help wherever I can. I love growing old at Issy Geshen.
