 Here are just a few of the recent comments we have received from clients about our Home Support Service

  • ‘Thank you Christine and Lisa, you were fantastic. If you need any recommendations please contact me. Take care and kind regards from both of us. If you’re ever around the area please feel pop in for a coffee and a chat’
  • ‘Many thanks to the carer for buying Grandad a new kettle, that was so kind and helpful and over and above what we expected’.
  • JM has rung to say how nice Paul was when he went this week.  She would have him back any time she said
  • I have had a chat with K today, daughter of JS. K would like to pass on to you all that the service you are providing to her mum is ‘exceptional’ and ‘brilliant.’ She said nothing was too much trouble and she feels so grateful for everything we are doing.
