Henrys lovely send off

Henry was a lovely client at Springfield healthcare for over 6 years, and very sadly passed away recently. Henry didn’t have any family and came to Springfield following an institution, so just had his care team and his lovely fiancé Doris (who is also our client).

Since his passing, the staff at Newcastle have been just fantastic in helping to plan the funeral. His care team have all been absolutely amazing and rallied around to make sure he had his favourite clothes, sorted his belongings and supported Doris through her grief. They also went to see him at the chapel of rest to say their goodbyes personally.

Every last detail of the funeral was arranged by his main carer Sam and the office. The whole team wrote a few personal words which Sam read beautifully at the funeral, which was incredibly powerful and emotional. Every last detail down to the music and flowers for the ceremony were so personal and special.

Henry’s favourite thing was to do jigsaws from his team, so his team arranged for a puzzle piece flower arrangement, a love heart from Doris and a beautiful bouquet from them all.

We could not be prouder of the team, for the passion and the sensitivity they showed. Seeing the team pull together as they did is simply amazing to see and makes us all very proud! He deserved a wonderful send-off and the Springfield team just did that – A massive Thank you to the Newcastle team! Springfield is beyond lucky to have you!
