Testimonials

I am so pleased with how you have been caring for my mum. You have really put my mind at ease and I cannot thank the staff enough. You really do care.

CB, Ipswich

I feel that I must write this letter to tell you how much I appreciate the care and compassion shown to me by the carer who looks after me.  Two years ago after an accident and stay in hospital where I experienced a nasty time, the thought of having carers for the first time in my life I found this quite frightening, also after the tales I had heard about them.

How wrong I was! Whether I have been lucky I don’t know but, June, Bev, Cathy Cavita & Nicky have changed my mind.  I only hope they are appreciated by their employers.
