A Message for You

“I have worked in the health & social care sector for many years, and for different companies but nothing like this. When I was invited to meet the team, I could feel the positive, welcoming atmosphere that buzzed through everyone. I was excited to join such a caring, family-orientated team. I wasn’t sure I could go back to the career in care that I love, nobody was able to be flexible with me, but then I started here. They help me work around my family commitments which has been a huge relief to me, I’ll finally be able to watch my children take part in sports day.” - Holly, Dementia Friend & Companion.
