Caring for someone is mentally and physically demanding. You may need additional help or some downtime from your caring duties. Our fully trained Care Support Workers can step in to support you as much or as little as you want, whether it’s occasional help or something more regular.
Find out more below on what some of our clients have experienced.
Ruth, our Care Support Worker, is featured here with Freda who has regained her independence and dignity from her illness and below is what her daughter had to say about the services we provided. Ruth has 13 years’ experience in caring for the elderly and speaks excellent English and Portuguese.
When my mother suffered stroke, I knew something had to be done after the struggle of juggling her care and my job. I contacted Harrow Carers, who were very helpful to discuss all the options that were available for mum, and I found them to be so reassuring and supportive”. “I had no doubt that live-in-care would be the right option for my mother. They chose a lovely carer for mum who was not only able to provide her with support she needed but who shared some of the same interests as her which meant they hit off pretty much straight away”.
“You went over and above the duty of care and to us you really are our heroes!”
Rosie, Marsha and Lorna, our care support workers looked after Glenora who sadly passed away.
We want to say a heartfelt thank you to yourself, Harrow Carers and express our gratitude to Rosie, Marsha and Lorna in particular. It is thanks to you all that Glenora was able to live out her final days at home with the level of care and respect that she deserved. Glenora was a wonderful woman and the way you cared for her meant so much to us as a family.
In these particularly challenging times carers are often the unsung heroes but we couldn’t be more grateful for all that you do; the songs you sang to her, the music you played and the psalms you read to her in her hour of need.
You went over and above the duty of care and to us you really are our heroes!
We will miss Glenora deeply but take great comfort in knowing that she was so well cared for and passed away peacefully in her home.
