Our service users

We often receive feedback from our service users, here is a selection:

“I would like to say a big thank you for all your assistance. I finally got my stair lift installed yesterday. This has made my life so easy and mobile I cannot explain in words. You are amazing people doing extraordinary work to make people like me live independently.”

“(OT) has been wonderful with her help for my Mum … helped to make Mum's life better. It's not easy to look after a family member and we needed help, (OT) and others too have stepped up and been there to support, care, advise, plan and guide with practical solutions on a positive and proactive manner. It's been quite sensational in all honesty.”

“(OT) was phenomenal.  She was so very kind and she listened to me.  She was wonderful to me and I cried because she knew what to do to help me.  I cannot praise her highly enough.  She is just wonderful.”  

“I am so very pleased with the overall outcome of my beautiful shower and bathroom. This has made a great difference to my life and well being”

“The adaptations have been completed and are ‘wonderful’ … pass on their thanks and appreciation to (Trusted Assessor) for all that she has done for them. (Service User) also praised everyone else who was involved as the process was very easy and the level of work very high.  

“(OT) came to assess me at home for a bath lift. I am an amputee, find it difficult to shower and have been longing for a bathlift. (OT) was professional and helpful and came up with a bath lift which will make it possible for me to take a bath.”
