Our Care Advisor, Isabelle, visited one of our clients, and relatives were present in the house at the time. They said they had been quite emotional when they saw their mother as the agency Carer had helped their mum into lovely clothes with matching jewellery, and had applied a wee bit of makeup. Her daughter said "We were all so overcome to see her looking so well cared for, as she used to always be made up with jewellery on, that it took them back to happy times before she became frail and unable to care for herself." They really enjoyed visit their mother now as they can sit and chat without having to also be her carer. It has really made a difference to the mother/daughter relationship. (February 2014)
"J is now going in to continuing care. K [daughter] wants to send her thanks to everyone for looking after her mother especially Maggie. She also said that her and her mum will be lost without Maggie and myself [did not want to put that but K wanted manager and Ruth to know how they feel]. She would also like to thank the girl in office [Elaine] for fixing out the times and the same carers for her mum as it meant she was able to relax knowing that same carers would be going in at the same times every day. Well done Maggie and Elaine." (Email sent 12 June 2013 via Care Advisor)
I was visiting a Client's home today to carry out a Direct Observation relating to a carer's SVQ Level 2. I was impressed at the level of care and attention the carer gave to the client. I asked the Client what she thought of the carer, and she replied without hesitation that she thought she was great and the care delivered was "100%". I was really proud to be this carer's employer. WE DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. (Ruth Smyth, Director, May 2013)
I received a call from [social worker] today. This was to thank us for arranging emergency care for her client in February 2013. The care was from the Friday to Monday. She wanted to thank Elaine (Care Coordinator) especially for doing this in a pleasant and professional manner even though it was after 16.30hrs on Friday when she requested this care. (Care Advisor, February 2013)
