Carer with Client

"My uncle has had a live-in Carer for a few years now. The service is excellent. My uncle, who is in his 90s, was frequently in hospitals and short-stay care homes. He is so much happier now with the excellent support he receives, which has enabled him to be where he is happiest: in his own home. It has given me complete peace of mind, as he is now being cared for as I would wish. All the staff I have met have been kind, caring and very efficient. I would have no reservations in thoroughly recommending Right at Home."
