The carers that visit my grandmother have given her a new lease of life. She looks forward to them coming each week, they really do make her day. Our family cannot thank them enough for the care and support the carers show. They're always friendly and happy to help when we leave them notes of tasks we would like them to complete.

I would recommend Right At Home to anybody who needs care for their loved ones.

What an excellent company, would highly recommend! Right at Home cared for my mother before she sadly passed away, she was treated with dignity and respect throughout the whole process. Each member of care staff showed love and care to not only her but the whole family! The management team also supported us through such a difficult time, ensuring we were kept informed at every step of the way and were on hand day and night if we required any further assistance or visits. We could not have got through this without them.

Having Right at Home provide care for my mother has literally been life changing for me as a carer and has provided my mother with the type of care that gives me the reassurance that she is receiving the very best service possible. Her carer built up a quick and fantastic rapport with my mother, to the extent that I can now have time to myself without having to worry at all and have stress free time that help me recharge my batteries. From the moment I engaged with Right at Home they were professional, respectful and understanding. Having cared for my mother on my own for the past three years with her dementia my only regret is that I didn't engage with Right at Home sooner. It was nerve racking at first leaving a loved one with someone you or they didn't know but Right at Home have shown outstanding care, and they have my highest recommendation like I said life changing for me and my mother.

We have been extremely happy with the service we have received form initial planning to the day to day operation of care for mum. I was quite anxious at first, having to leave mum at home, as I went back to work but my anxieties were minimised as I was assured that the right person would be found to build a caring relationship with mum. This was indeed the case and she has thrived. Thank you.

Julie Foote

Job Title: Managing Director

Description:

I’ve lived in the area all my life, have my friends here and am involved in lots of local charities and events.

At Right at Home East Lancashire and Ribble Valley we support anyone over 18, and as well as being a member of several local forums campaigning for improved quality of life for older people, I’m also a member of Blackburn with Darwen Learning Disabilities Partnership Board.

I’m an active fundraiser for charities including the Alzheimer’s Society and through my role as the Secretary of Whalley Chamber of Trade, I’ve built good relationships with other organisations in the local community. I am a keen supporter of Ribble Valley Seniors and Hyndburn Over 50s, who actively campaign on issues relating to older people.

It can be overwhelming to decide on the best thing to do when someone close to us needs care. I know this from personal experience, having seen a good friend struggle to find good care for her husband when he became ill – this was my initial motivation to get involved in care work myself. We all want the best for our families and it is important to me that our clients have the reassurance of knowing that my team and I provide a top quality service.
