Review of JDK Ltd (Glenhomecare) on Thursday 11 April 2013 by Catherine Bullock (Service user)

I would like to compliment the manager and her staff team on the excellent care I received last year I fell and broke my hip and had to come to terms with the fact I needed help. At the time I reluctantly accepted carers so I could come out of hospital and now I don't no what I would do without them. I have very little family I am 86 with two sisters aged 90 and 92 you could say I am the baby of the family and therefore we can't help each other. The manager and her regular care staff always go that extra mile, nothing is too much trouble, they do my laundry and cleaning and personal care and always ring me if they running a bit late to reassure me they haven't forgotten me. I have a condition which affects my breathing and there has been many times during winter months when the manager has prevented me from going back into hospital by staying over and calling in extra I am extremely grateful to have been given a group of carers who are dedicated to the work they do and would recommend them to anyone who was like me reluctant to admit or accept they need that little bit of help

Review of JDK Ltd (Glenhomecare) on Thursday 17 January 2013 by Debra Donaldson (service user)

I would like to recommend this home care service has I have now had home carers for the past 3 years and I have always received and been happy with the care I have requested. The carers are very dedicated and always give that little bit extra eg if I run short of milk or they fetch me fish and chips when they call back to my dinner call, nothing is too much trouble... Without my carers supporting me I would not have been able to live in my flat and I would now probably ended up in a care home. They support me to shop and pay my bills as well has taking me out socialising. My carers are more like friends but at the same are very professional. I am now 46 years old and live a normal life and have the opportunity to try new ventures with has much or as little support I request. They are very reliable and turn up at my requested times and I always know who my carers are as I was able to choose and select my own carers. I am now a lot more content and look forward to seeing my carers on a daily basis and enjoy shopping and other outings. Glenholme care on my request assist me with my personal care, medication and cooking and preparing my meals. I have set days were I get laundry and cleaning calls and are very flexible to change at short notice, They only charge on a set hourly rate and no change for weekends or bank holidays, which has allowed me to have additional hours which I can use for my needs. When I am not very well I will ask for extra support and they have always been able to offer it, also when my family can't take me to hospital appointments etc. They will step in and take me sometimes at very short notice. If I have a concern or not very happy about something I no who I have to contact for help or reassurance. They will try to sort out any problems and always take the time to listen . I have been taken out on day trips and have been considering going on holiday with my carers has this is now something new this year a holiday care service I asked my niece if she would type this report on my behalf, as I'm not very good with computers.
