Testimonials

Read some genuine words from our clients and carers about how our service makes them feel, and how we’re helping them have a brighter, better day.

Mum is surrounded day and night by the Martlets Care carers, in whose company she is looked after with much love, kindness, warmth and good humour. These tireless carers have become like a family to both mum and ourselves and we would like to express our deepest thanks and gratitude for all they do for her wellbeing.

I am also indebted to you for arranging Martlets Care – the carers were amazing, coming every day with smiles on their faces and eager to please. They were very, very good.

Client to a Macmillan nurse

I’ve been visiting Crispin for 3 years now, looking after his care needs associated with MND. He keeps me busy – but I really enjoy making a difference to his life. We talk about all sorts of things – including his hobbies and interests. We always share a good laugh and brighten each others’ day. Care calls are not a chore – I love working with people.

Carol (carer)

Knowing that my mum is being thoroughly washed and the care plan being followed means I experience much less stress & worry about mum’s wellbeing.

Relative about the difference Martlets Care has made to quality of life

My carer notices the little things; she is fully engaged with me and the tasks she is carrying out the whole time she is here; she is very thoughtful and caring and, above all, she is very thorough. It helps that we do have a laugh – she is an excellent carer.

Thank you – everyone has been amazing – honestly could not have done without you. The carers give so much more than care, they make this time extremely precious to me. We feel a genuine warmth and compassion from all of them.

You are providing a very professional service and I and my family remain very grateful.

Client about the difference Martlets Care has made to quality of life

The pleasant way I’m treated – a great start to the day.

Client

They are a fantastic bunch on the whole, and try to stick to the routine and ask if they are not sure rather than being bossy. I appreciate this. What lovely people you all are!

Client about our carer

Many thanks to the good people at Martlets Care who helped my husband before he went into the hospice. Please pass on a special thank you to his carer for her kindness, it was a pleasure to know her.

Client’s wife about one of our carers

I have had a number of young carers who have been to the University on a nursing course, and I thought you would like to know they are all excellent; all quite different; all a pleasure to have around.
