TESTIMONIALS

 

"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 home."

" 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."

 

M.Anderson, Auckland

 

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 living.

"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.
