I MUST say that I agree with Jennifer Andrews (HAS, Jan 13) in defence of Darlington Manor Care Home.

My wife has been in the home now for two-and-a-half years.

I, or one of the family, go to see her most days. Never have we found her upset by the staff. They all care for her like their own.

Her room is always clean smelling and fresh. Drinks and biscuits always on the go.

It’s always warm and nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

I am so pleased we picked the Manor Care Home in the first place to care for my wife and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

James Ray Scaife, Darlington.
