We are very happy, with your support and care.  Our mother’s main support carer is a delight to deal with patient, understanding, flexible and knowledgeable in a quiet way.  It is lovely that Mum (aged 97) is able to live at home, without your support this would no longer be possible.

We have been really happy with the care that Dove provides, and with the standard of the carers, who are thoughtful, caring, kind and professional.  After trying many other care companies we know how important that is, and how rare it is to find it.  So thank you for your hard work in finding the right carers for Mum and for continuing to help us, it is very very much appreciated.

To all concerned at Dove Home Care On behalf of all of my family, I would just like to say a huge thank you to you all at Dove for the wonderful care that you have provided and indeed continue to provide for my Dad, since he has returned home from a stay in hospital.

It is such an apprehensive time when you have to make such an important decision as to whom is to care for a member of your family.However, from the moment that we made contact with you, we were totally reassured and very impressed with your professionalism, kindness and understanding.

Every single carer who has arrived to look after Dad has been incredibly kind, understanding of his needs, prompt and genuine. Not only is that of great comfort to Dad but it also importantly provides the rest of our family with the reassurance that Dad is in the very best of hands and the worry is taken away.

I would recommend Dove in a heartbeat to any family who require care for a family member. A genuine thanks to you all!

12 February 2014

On behalf of the family I just wanted to write to say how much we have appreciated the care that Dove has provided Mom, and also for Dad until he sadly passed away in 2011.   Our association goes back many years and we have been more than happy with the way you have looked after the family during a difficult time.

We have met some really lovely people over the years. I would like to thank the carer who was with Mom during her last two weeks at home and who did a wonderful job in organising Mom’s personal effects in preparation for the move and also reassuring her with regard to the future.  She certainly made things easier for the family.

Once again, many thanks and please be assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending Dove to others.

 Many thanks to everyone who has taken care of our mother since December.  She enjoyed meeting you and chatting to you, and we were impressed with the friendliness, consistency and hard work of the carers.

6 January 2014

I would like to thank you very much for the care given to my aunt, by all the carers over the past eight months. I know that my aunt appreciated the genuine kindness, care and concern that everyone showed her.  It was re-assuring for the family to know that she was receiving such reliable help and support and that any new needs would be attended to promptly.  Please pass on my thanks to all concerned.”

“I and my brother have both been very impressed with all the Dove Care staff. When my mother needed a live in carer (over 18 months ago) we were somewhat apprehensive
particularly as there had been various reports in the press about poor care services. However, right from the first day of Dove Care’s involvement, we were impressed with professionalism of everybody involved and the commitment of the individual carers to caring for my mother. This has provided us with a great deal of re-assurance and we are able to relax (with no worries) knowing that she is being looked after as well as could be expected by a competent, caring, organisation.”
