Reviewer Connection to Dolphin Care (IOW) Ltd

  • Wife of Client/Service User

I would highly recommend Dolphin Care they are reliable, caring and very efficient. Also, they are honest. My husband has Parkinson's and sometimes his feet do not move properly. They always know how to deal with this. As soon as a new carer comes they are told how to handle this. We have been with them 4 years and have no complaints. If we have any problems I just ring and they are dealt with straight away. I could not manage without their help
