I just wanted to post to anyone who needs help or company for their elderly parents.
My mother's fabulous carer/companion is leaving us after 3 years. She has been integral to keeping my mother physically and mental stimulated, despite her advancing Alzheimer's.
Louise is a smart, educated, trendy lady in her 50s who lives locally. Before my mother declined they would take regular trips out shopping, to parks, art galleries, and spend many hours just knitting, chatting and discussing Brexit! Fantastic company for her, and at £15 per hour far more reasonable than extortionate agency fees (definitely more preferable).
Please pass on my recommendation to any friends with local elderly parents. Her number is 07906 925294, and I am more than happy to be a reference if you would like to DM.
