"What my Home Instead CAREgiver does for me is outstanding"- Suzanne, Leopardstown, Co. Dublin

Oct 13, 2011

"What my Home Instead CAREGiver does for me in the few hours I have allocated is outstanding. If other people are treated as well as me, then they are fortunate indeed. My CAREGiver will encourage me when I am able to mobilise but she will never push or judge me. When I am unable to walk unaided she tirelessly helps me shower, washes my hair, and changes my bed which needs to be done every few days. Then there are a whole other list of things shopping, washing, cooking tasks she takes on for me.

My relationship with my CAREgiver is very warm and caring. I find that even on days or times she is not due to be with me, she offers and often goes to the chemist or doctor to pick up urgent prescriptions which due to my illness happen frequently. That is so selfless and so kind".
