I phoned four care homes, including Twilight Towers where the Deceased Lady, Mr AJ and Mrs CJ’s mother have all been residents. The matron of Twilight Towers confirmed that they currently had a vacancy, and that the fees were still “at funding level”. She remembered the Old Man, and (unprompted by me) that he had sometimes visited Twilight Towers after the death of the Deceased Lady and had brought daffodils for the staff. (Those daffodils grow at the side of the Old Man’s driveway.) She told me that she has been the matron for fourteen-and-a-half years.
