“Jenny has been with us now for about 5 years and quickly became a friend of the family. She came to help my dad with personal care and looked after him very well. Now he is much more dependant so has to have a live-in carer, but because we were both so fond of her we didn’t want to lose her so kept her on to take dad out once or twice a week. These trips became the highlight of the week for him. She takes him to lunch and is not at all phased by the difficulties this presents. She will even bring her lovely family with her for extra company for him and take him for a drive. Of course these have had to be postponed as he is high risk for Covid 19 but she rings to chat and he says he can’t wait to go out with her again.
She is reliable, efficient, good on hygiene, cheerful, kind, helpful, and caring. She will engage dad in conversation, always listen and be interested in him, and cheer him up if he’s down – and me as well! Always a ray of sunshine when she comes.”
