Our residents – Tracy

After caring for their daughter Tracy for over 25 years, Robert and Renee were faced with the difficult decision of looking for a suitable nursing home for her.

Tracy was left severely disabled, aged just 16, when her brain was starved of oxygen, after collapsing with tonsillitis.

With the help of their other daughter, Alison, and a team of carers, they provided round the clock care at their home but when Renee was taken ill it became too much.

“My wife became very ill, and we had carers coming into the house day and night to help with Tracy, but it was just too much for us,” said Robert.

Set in over two acres of landscaped garden, offering a tranquil and pleasant environment, and rated “Good” in its latest inspection report, Lilibet Manor has a dedicated wing to provide nursing and residential care to younger residents with complex medical and/or physical disabilities.

All the rooms are en-suite and there are also several lounges and a dining area where fresh home cooked food is served.

Robert, 79, says Tracy, 42, has settled in really well during her first months at Crawshaw.

“We can pick up from Tracy when something isn’t right, we would know if she was distressed from the change in her expression and up to now there has been no problem, we have been very pleased with the care,” he said.

Tracy is a big music fan, especially fond of Blur and Madonna, and in her own room she can enjoy her favourite tunes or watch TV.

“The staff are looking after her well, Tracy has a lovely room on the ground floor and we can visit every day,” said Robert.
