I have a wonderful carer. She has been my carer for many years. A few times I have been asked to change my carer but I have always asked for my carer. I feel safe and happy with her, she is reliable, cares for all my needs and is always willing to help. I am always looking forward to her visits. I would like to thank her for all she does for me.
