Real Stories

Hear the difference live-in care can make, from people who’ve experienced it

Live-in care can make a huge, life-changing difference to people’s lives. Read genuine stories from people who’ve experienced live-in care first-hand.

Penny gets her life and friends back

Penny, 72, had already suffered a stroke, resulting in the onset of vascular dementia, memory loss and confusion. After she had a fall, her family wasn’t able to care for her full-time, so arranged for Penny to move into a care home. While satisfied with the level of care, Penny felt lonely and afraid, while missing her friends and neighbours. After her family heard about live-in care, they brought in two specialist dementia carers from The Good Care Group; one, more mature with lots in common with Penny. She now alternates two week assignments with a younger, bubbly Australian carer who loves to cook. The service is both subtle and highly supportive, giving Penny a real sense of independence. From doing the washing up, to putting away the shopping and seeing friends, Penny lives as active a life as possible, doing wonders for her general wellbeing.

Penny’s daughter Lesley says: “The solution of one-to-one care in her own home from The Good Care Group is perfect. It lets my mother be sociable in her own environment. She’s now got her life and her friends back.”

The Good Care Group

"The Good Care Group has been, literally lifesavers. My mother has had a year with lots of contentment, fun and even laughter with her two carers who supports her every need. Her amazing carers just cope with everything."

Miracle Workers

"I wanted to drop you a short note to say how grateful we are as a family to Miracle Workers for providing us with two such fantastic carers who saw our mother through the last two years of her life. They were far more than carers to her, had become good friends and her quality of life was so much better with them."

Every Care

"I regard Everycare Eastbourne as an outstanding care organisation. They provided home care support for both my mother and father over a period of nine years. The administration was excellent – well organised, professional, flexible, friendly and highly supportive. The care provided was of the highest quality – it was consistently good, proactive, professional, and treated my parents with kindness and respect. I cannot speak highly enough of the personnel involved with this organisation; they provided a real lifeline of supported independent home living initially for my mother and then for my father. As a family we had complete trust in them; a trust that was well founded."

Ashridge Homecare

"I contacted Ashridge Home Care literally just before lockdown for COVID 19 as my very elderly parents had previously only had daily care for 3 hours a day. They were extremely professional and efficient and within 4 days we had a full-time carer move in.  She has been absolutely miraculous giving the excellent and vital care they so desperately needed. I can’t recommend Ashridge more highly."

Consultus Care

"I would just like to say what a wonderful carer we had from Consultus. My mother has just passed away and I just thank God that she was there with me. She couldn’t have been kinder or more loving, while at the same time being highly efficient. I know my mother hasn’t always been the easiest of people, but she seemed to know how to deal with it and still really appreciated her. I have coincided with many carers over these two years, and all were excellent. Thank you for all your help these last two years, we couldn’t have managed without you."

Access Care

"I contacted Access Care in an emergency situation when I needed 24/7 care for my father-in-law. They were extremely friendly and professional and very quickly resolved my problem by putting care in place at extremely short notice. Every member of staff I have dealt with has made this situation so much easier to deal with and, should I require this service in the future, I would not hesitate in contacting them."

Guardian Angel Carers

"Guardian Angel Carers have done a wonderful job in providing carers for my Mother for the past 4 years. As my Mother’s needs have changed, so has the level of care, and Guardian Angels always understand the complexities of getting things just “right”. Christina’s team always go the extra mile. I have been truly impressed by the carers and the office team. Small and personal, Guardian Angels care!"
