4th May 2018
We should just like to write our appreciation of Dove Home Care and Sheila and her assistants in particular. We were delighted to have one person to care for us throughout the six weeks.
The care was splendid and the happy atmosphere during the entire stay certainly helped my recovery. However that we were able to stay in our own home for the whole time was the biggest bonus.
Thank you to all who organised and made this possible.

Dear John and staff at Dove Home Care
I would like to thank everyone from Dove who was involved with Sylvia, in any way over the last few years, for their helpfulness and their care. We really have appreciated the high quality of care provided and it was very reassuring to have such reliable and consistent carers. This also enabled us to keep mum in her own home, where she was comfortable.
I would especially like to thank Sheila for the loving personalised care she gave to mum for over three years and her consideration and thoughtfulness in her role as carer. Also more recently Ellen and Brenda who were equally caring. They have all been truly wonderful, especially when mum’s health deteriorated and things became more difficult. We will be forever grateful for their kindness and support.
Once again, many thanks and please be assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending Dove to others.

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.
Many thanks, as always for your efficient service.

To all the Team at Dove
A Massive Thank you for looking after Dad with so much care + thought. I honestly can’t do it without you – and you make him smile which is fabulous.
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!
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.
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.”
A big thank you to yourself, the carers and the management for providing such an exemplary care service.”
“Both my sister and I have have found all your carers wonderful and it is like seeing a friend again when they come into care for Dad every day”
“I am just so grateful that I have a carer who is so understanding” of my needs”
“We are very pleased we chose Dove Care. We have had peace of mind during the three weeks following my operation and have enjoyed meeting all the carers. We look forward
to your continued support”.
“I would recommend this service to anyone who needed this kind of home care”.
“Long may you help me”
“My sister and I have been really pleased with the care, help and kindness shown to our Father by all the team at Dove”
“I have always found the staff very helpful and caring”.
