“Ally and Dom came into our lives at a particularly trying time in November 2010. My mother – now 86 years old, very poorly sighted and becoming less able physically – had just suffered the appalling shock of discovering that her beloved and trusted help of many years had been systematically removing considerable sums of money from her bank account for nearly a year. It was a bitter blow and, on a practical level, created a real crisis in finding reliable, honest, compassionate and effective care for her at very short notice.
Miraculously, we found all of this and more in this husband and wife team. They are thoughtful, companionable, utterly dependable and can – and do - turn their hands to anything that needs doing from cooking to painting, from creating a productive vegetable patch to keeping an eye on her appointments as well as ensuring that all the every day household tasks are up to scratch. Ally’s nursing experience is invaluable, Dom’s kindly presence always reassuring.
Ally, Dom and their infinite care have made it possible for my Mum to stay in the home she and my father loved so much with friends and family able to visit and life to continue, as far as possible, as it always has. Her life is immeasurably better for their being in it; knowing that we have them to count on is a boon beyond price for my brother and I as we both live a considerable distance from her.” Name withheld
