Memories of Margaret
A condition like MS has a huge impact on individuals and on their carers and Margaret and I were delighted when we found Leuchie House in February 2000.
Immediately, we found that Leuchie provided the comfort that Margaret and I were looking for. For Margaret it offered her the opportunity to have all her needs catered for whilst she was there. For me, it gave me a break from my caring responsibilities, knowing how well cared for and happy she was. At first it was difficult for me to take a more hands-off approach but with the help of the wonderful staff, I did finally get used to the idea that Leuchie offers respite for carers as well as for the guests. It gave me the opportunity to fully charge my batteries.
Margaret made so many friends from all over the UK there and plans were often made to book the same holidays in the future. She managed to attend Leuchie at least twice a year from 2000 until her last visit in 2016, the year she suddenly passed away.
