With some trepidation, we moved my parents, at the age of 93, from their home of 45 years on the outskirts of London, to Derbyshire to be near to us. They have had 5 very happy years here, thanks to the excellent care of Amber Valley Total Care.
Their carers got to know them both very well and have always been sensitive to their particular needs. They have been caring and kind and have found time to talk and listen while making meals or providing personal care. The relationships formed have been just as important to Mum and Dad as the tasks they have carried out for them. We have been able to rely on the carers to alert us or the medical practice whenever a problem arose. The carers have also been a great support to myself and my sister and we would like to thank them all.
I wish to express my thanks and gratitude to all of your carers who have looked after my mother and father for the past few years. Nothing was too much trouble and your ladies care and understanding shown to my parents was amazing. Over the years they have become more than carers and become close friends.
Sadly, my mother passed away last week and your continued support for my father is very much appreciated.Service User
Now that my mum has had to move on into residential care, I would like to thank you for everything you’ve done for her over the last 15 months. You and your team were consistently professional and competent, and I was always impressed by your prompt responses to changes in her care needs. The way your carers worked together was impressive too, and one day when Mum was having particular difficulty getting out of bed a second carer was there within minutes. Your communication within the team was excellent too, and when Mum had a fall one night all her carers were aware by the next morning.
What made the real difference to Mum’s quality of life though was the way you all related to her. Despite her initial reticence regarding care, she soon thought of you as friends. There was a warmth and a respect shown to her that was obviously very genuine, and she responded well to this, trusting you and working with you.I have no doubt that your excellent care not only kept her safe and well while she was at home, but added massively to her quality of life.
Very many thanksService User
