"Thank you for the support and companionship I have received over the past few months. The CAREGivers have been wonderful taking me to see my wife in hospital. It is lovely I can still visit her on a regular basis.  Without your care and understanding it would be very lonely here on my own." – Mr. C, Allerton, Liverpool
