Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were to hear about Debbies Award. We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a good team of CAREGivers helping look after my wife's father and in some ways pinpointing one person can seem a bit unfair to the others who also do a very good job. However ....... Debbie is a very special person. Every call, whatever the circumstances is approached in a very calm, gentle, thorough and totally professional way. She is a very warm hearted, happy and caring person and I know my In-Laws look forward to her visits. Thank you.CA Son-in-Law of Client in Weston Favell
