What our clients and carers say:
"Our carers are a godsend – they help me as well as care for my husband. They are like family. They pick up on everything and try to make life fun."
Maureen - family member at All Saints View
Our carers go that extra mile for my father and, as he is deaf and poor of sight, that makes such a difference. Good care is vital for him at 93 years and we are grateful for the service the carers give him.
It's great for us to know mum is being taken care of when we can't be around. The carers are reliable and act with such kindness, I know my mum enjoys their company as much as their care support.
Family member of client
I can honestly say I love working for Care is Central. Care does have its challenges but they all seem so minor when you get to see people's happiness every day. As long as I can make my residents laugh, smile and meet their needs, what else could I ask for?
I love my job as I know that at the end of the day I have made a difference in someone's life. It's challenging but the rewards outweigh the hard work.
As a new company, Care is Central is a joy to work with. Everyone is so enthusiastic and what shines through is their commitment to the clients and residents they look after. Its great to be a part of a team like that, plus I have some great clients too!
Knowing each day I am helping clients to keep doing the things that make them happy whilst giving peace of mind to their families is an amazing feeling.
It's lovely to know that Katie will be here to help me every day. She is a godsend in so many ways and I don't know what I'd do without her helping me get out and about and around the house.
