Mother of resident (who isn’t able to visit the home)
Ray was a resident at High Oaks some years ago and he sent an email to update us on how well he was managing in his life.
He said that he wanted to thank the staff at High Oaks for helping him get back on track. He wrote that without them he probably wouldn’t have been able to get married to Gemma, his wife of three years.
He asked that we put his photo on our website to “create a High Oaks success story”. He also said “High Oaks is a breath of fresh air, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise”
Ray and his wife Gemma are now proud parents of Leslie James who was born on 17 May 2012 at 5.07am weighing a healthy 9lb.
