Being a CAREGiver
Monty our office dog loves to visit clients in the community. Mrs V loves Monty and gets excited whenever she knows he is going to visit which at the moment is about twice a week. Mrs V has a picture of Monty on her mantel piece and looks at it all the time. Our CAREGiver comes in and picks him up and he is just as excited as the client!
Mrs V is unable to get out much anymore and can't have a dog at home so she loves it when Monty comes to visit and it really makes her day. She is happy, relaxed and content when he is around so the visit is really welcomed.
Monty goes into the garden for a play and to chase pigeons and then he curls up at Mrs V's feet and goes to sleep while she sits and strokes him.
it is always the small things that make our clients happy and to see that smile on their face is the most rewarding feeling. You don't have to go mad and try hard its just a matter of finding out what our clients love and seeing if we can accommodate that.
My family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided at such a difficult time. Home Instead have been professional and caring in all their dealings with us and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone requiring care and companionship.Mrs H, Fetcham
