My own view so far, is that the empathy and competence which Cobi brings to her role has already made her a valuable member of this household. Her sense of humour and the ease with which she is accepting the particular peculiarities of various personalities within the household bodes well for the future, and I'm very happy to be going back to Australia knowing that both parents are being catered to so well.
Thanks for your part in this (sometimes traumatic) venture into the previously unknown world of care. The clarity with which you steered us through and the absence of any sort of pressure, were invaluable and greatly appreciated.
I'll wait to hear from you as regards dates.

I am very happy with the quality of care. Chloe is lovely and seems to get on very well with Rose. Martha who covered for Chloe and has helped out once or twice has been great, too.

Thank you and your team for your wonderful response to my request for care for my patient.
The care provided by Nicole was super, Kath was very relaxed and happy in her care and she wanted for nothing, she work extremely well with my team of nurses.
Please pass on my thanks,
Will remember your service for future,

Carole and I would like to thank you for all your help in the last few months. When we were wondered what to do next, you gave advice and help us plan for Dad’s care and ensuring his safety at all times.
Both us feel that without your company we would not have managed to allow dad his final wish to remain in his own home until the end.
Your staff, Olga and Lucas were both excellent, kind and very caring individuals. They quietly did the job and with little fuss, a quality that out father would have appreciated. Please thank both Olga and Lucas from us, for all their help at a stressful and difficult time for us.
Once again thank you for all your help

I’d like to say how VERY impressed I’ve been by both Dorcas and Natasha. They cared so well for my Dad at the end of his life.
They were always on hand and ready when he needed help and they were also brilliant at fading into background, leaving space.
I can’t praise them enough.
I appreciate, it wasn’t an easy job!
Mandy C. Daughter of Service User
We felt incredibly fortunate that it was dear Dorcas, a superb palliative carer, who she have been the one to be with my mother at the very last.
I will certainly speak to in person before the summer is up, but meanwhile here is a rapid note of thanks. You and the company looked after us very well.
With best wishes
I find Virginia to be an exceptionally accomplished carer, very bright and with the ability to tackle any task within her remit.
She has a penchant for tidiness, but I have to admit that I am quite untidy myself, so this tends to even things out.
Her ability to shower and dry me is remarkable and the occasional leg massage does help my circulation.
Finally, in my opinion Virginia is worth her weight in GOLD!! God Bless Her.
