"The Good Companions have been
with Mum for over a year now and her care over this
time has been wonderful. The service provided is very
reliable and to an excellent standard. Pam has put together
and maintains a really good team of staff and really
seems to understand the needs of her clients. All the
Good Companions are doing a marvellous job in every
aspect - in so many big and little ways. Mum often tells
me she is happy, contented and I can really see that
the care and attention, she receives has made a big
difference to her health and happiness. Mum and I both
feel that the Good Companions have her best interests
at heart. Mum’s pet dog is also very well looked
after and the house is spotless, and feels like a home.
Thank you to everyone for such a professional and caring
service that has enabled Mum to stay in her own home
comfortably and safely. Both Mum and I have no hesitation
in recommending the Good Companions Service."
"The Good Companion has provided
care for my Mum since July 2015. The Companions who
look after her on a 24 hour basis fully understand her
needs. They are also a source of company for my Mum
and take her out for shopping and social activities.
This has enabled her to continue to remain in her own
" We would be delighted to endorse
your services. It has made such a difference for all
of us. We were struggling after Dad's passing to manage
Mum's re-engagement in living on her own. The companions
have provided a much needed support and reassurance
for us all. Mum really looks forward to your visits;
you are warm and engaging and she has come to know and
trust you well."
"Towards the end our mother was
completely bed ridden, suffering from bouts of dementia,
and they coped marvelously; she always looked immaculate
and happy. In fact they gave her the love and care that
usually only family members are capable of."
The girls have been so excellent and
have added so much enjoyment to mother’s daily
life... they have changed her life from existing to
Polly Warren, Lincoln.
"We wish to acknowledge the wonderful
job you and your team of companions did in lovingly
and respectfully caring for Mum. Her comfort and her
wishes were always paramount..it enabled Mum to remain
in her own home - this was her utmost wish"
Read family, Nelson
I am the youngest daughter of Kate.
Andy was my mother’s caregiver for the last year
of her life. I wanted to write to you as your company
assigned her to my mother’s care. It is important
to my father and I that we submit something that attests
to Andy’s competency and compassion.
When a person is chronically ill people
often define them by their disabilities. Their names
become attached with conditions and care management.
Andy treated my mother with respect. She recognised
that we wanted to protect my mum’s dignity. She
had the ability of bringing a smile to my mother’s
face which was often shrouded in pain. She worked tirelessly
to attend to her and aspects of our home.
I have worked in youth and adult development
for 23 years as a health social worker, programme developer,
programme and personal development manager. I am also
a university educator and clinical supervisor. I have
observed many practitioners attend to clients. Andy’s
sensitivity and sincerity was so appreciated.
I lived with my mother for 33 years.
She was the most influential person in my life and as
such I was highly protective of her. My father and I
were able to fulfil our employment responsibilities
knowing that mum would be holistically cared for.
Please pass on our best wishes to her
and our thanks for honouring the most magnificent women
we have ever encountered.
