Read about out outstanding care.

Our key priority is to make sure Anne stays safe and well in her own home and, therefore, making sure has her medication in a timely manner is extremely important. Having an open two way channel of communication between ourselves and the care company has really helped to give assurance that Anne is doing okay and that there are no areas of concern.

I would just like to pass on my thanks to all your ladies who carry out a daily visit to my mum

When this care package was first arranged due to my mum's onset of dementia I thought that there would be a bit of resistance from her as she is a very independent lady. But after the first couple of visits it all settled down The ladies who come to her are all lovely and mum really looks forward to them arriving every morning

It’s all part of her daily routine now.

Thank you for making this an easy transition not just for mum, but for us all,

Kind regards,

Donna Wilson and family
