Great friendly staff and very efficient when handling my husband who becomes difficult when it comes to personal care.
They talk him through the motions which manages to calm him down. They are experienced in handling dementia patients, the illness which my husband suffers.
I would not be able to take care of my husband at home if this service did not exist.JT - wife of Service User19/07/2019
“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.”Dorothy Charlesworth24/06/2019

My regular carer is Judith and I can’t say enough nice things about her. She sees things that need doing that I don’t spot and I never need to ask her to do something as she is always on top of everything. I trust her and she is very special.Ethel, a client09/10/2018

Just some feedback to pass on to Caremark re Mr & Mrs A. Both son and daughter are very happy with the care they are providing. Daughter states the care is outstanding and nothing compared to where she lives. She has nothing but praise for them. They (Caremark) also have been useful to me through the assessment process.
Just wanted to pass on some good feedback

We have received the following handwritten letter from a friend of one of our clients:
I am writing to express my appreciation for the care given to JS by Clarissa R
Early on Christmas Day morning J attempted to get out of bed to reach her commode. Unfortunately she did not make it and as a result J, the bed and the commode were comprehensively soiled.
When Clarissa arrived she immediately took control of the situation - first of all seeing to J's needs and by the time she left everything was back to normal.
Her care was outstanding and I felt I had to let you know how we value her professional and efficient service.
Would you please pass on our thanks to her,
SSMrs SS - friend of JS05/01/2018

Phone call received from SH's daughter regarding her carer, Khadija. She said:
“I personally want to give Khadija a compliment for the support she gives to my Mum. Since Khadija has started, Mum is much less anxious and is less stressed. I no longer receive any distressing phone calls/messages from my Mum. Khadija often sends helpful photos of her activities with Sheila. I have overheard her manner with Mum, which is very positive. I know that with my Mum’s deteriorating condition, her dementia can make her behaviour very challenging. Khadija deals with this very well with her down to earth manner and sense of humour. My Mum does not have the ability to make her own choices, and Khadija, through using common sense makes very positive choices. I often hear her banter and sense of humour. I am very relieved to have someone like Khadija looking after my Mum – thank you.”Daughter of Service User06/04/2016
Email received from JS:

She came to church. She was brilliant. She was very knowledgeable in her caring role. She ensured we could take part in the church service. She helped us to make paper prayer flowers.
She demonstrated knowledge in moving and handling and falls prevention.
She beat Samuel at the dish washing challenge.
Sam and Samuel spoke endless about classic cars.
Thank you for sending Sam.
