Dorothy began received home care support from Caremark Kirklees in January.2019. Lack of mobility, coupled with macular degeneration which makes it difficult for her to see clearly, meant she was finding it difficult remaining in the flat she has been in for the last 20 years.
However, with our help, Dorothy, aged 93, has been able to continue living in her home.
We visit her four times a day, on a morning to help her get up and have her breakfast (with a regular shower call too), lunchtime to make her a meal, teatime to prepare and serve her with dinner and night-time to help her into bed.
Dorothy says: “I have had other care companies before, but Caremark Kirklees are easily the best.
“I have some great carers; my favourite is Lia who is top of the pack in my view.
“We have a really good laugh together and she is just wonderful.
“She, along with the other carers, help me to remain as independent as I can, which is important to me. So, they will encourage me to help in the bathing and dressing process and they ensure my medicine is in the correct place so I can take it myself.
“They show so much compassion.”< Back to all Case Studies
