Relief to Carer (Short Term Care)

Lorraine, Wantage

"Thank you for caring for my brother MT. You and your team have been brilliant.  So far the care for M has been going well. Always enough food and drink left within reach for him between visits. Food has been made as requested and personal care attended to. Any worries have been discussed via phone. Thank you for your kindness."
