My father has a ½ hour visit to provide company and heat up a food meal. The carers always leave the kitchen area clean and tidy. Dad enjoys the company of the carers and looks forward to their visits. They are always on time and have never let him down. If they feel Dad needs me they always contact me and stayed with Dad until I arrive. We would recommend this company to anybody.

what a pleasure to deal with carers who 'care'. Starting down the care route is a difficult balancing act but you curtainly get the balance right. From the office staff to the carers on the front line the care in delivered in a very professional caring way. Well done Wessex.

My Mother-in-Law has mixed dementia and it recently became apparent she was no longer capable of caring for herself properly. Once Castle Care started, they have come in every lunch-time to give her a hot meal, and make her a sandwich for the evening. They also stay and chat with her over a cup of tea, and my Mother-in-Law regards them all as friends. They treat her with respect and courtesy, even when she has had the odd episodes to do with her illness, and they have met each crisis with commendable efficiency and compassion, contacting the doctor when required and keeping us fully informed of all problems or just progress updates.

Castle Care have now been caring for Mother-in-Law for around four months, and it has made a huge difference to her. Now she is properly fed, she seems brighter and more like her old self, although we know she can only get worse. They have also been supportive to us, offering a path through the maze and making several helpful suggestions to make both her and our lives easier.

They are an excellent and committed agency, and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
