Review submitted from a Website Submission by Neil T (Son of Client) on Friday 23 September 2016. Relates to September 2016.
My mother is not the easiest of clients. She has dementia and refuses to go into a care home. Oxford House Community Care attends to her three times daily. The carer gets her out of bed, washes and dresses her. Makes sure she has her hearing aids in then settles her in front of the TV. Gets her breakfast and then makes sure she is comfortable until the carer returns. Mum's eating habits are not the best in as much she would live on jam sandwiches. Her carer knows she likes fried fish from the local fish and chip shop, so she takes the time to call into the shop to collect some fresh cooked fish. She really enjoys this. The carer makes her a jam sandwich for an afternoon snack. A member of the family calls in at teatime and makes her a sandwich (jam) and cake. Finally, early evening, the carer calls to get her into bed and settle her down for the night. Mum has nothing but praise for her carer and it is a comfort for me and my siblings to know that she is being well looked after.
