SIR - We read a lot about the standard of care homes in the Bradford District, but I would like to say how well my dad was treated whilst he was a resident of the council-run Beckfield Care home on Bolton Lane in Bradford.

Unfortunately my dad died on April 14, but whilst he was there for ten weeks he was treated with the utmost respect and compassion, as were myself and the rest of my family.

All the staff were a credit to the care home and Bradford Council.

Mick Winner, Northfield Grove Bradford
