An extremely valuable service.
I have the sitting service for my husband who has Parkinsons Disease with dementia and postural hypotension. This makes him prone to falling. I use my 4 hours a week all at once so I can pursue my hobby. It's my lifeline to some normality of life. My husband also benefits from my absence for a little while! He gets on well with sitter.
