We understand some of the daily routines many people take for granted can become difficult or restrictive with age or as the result of injury or ill health.
“The care seems to be working well for mum – she really enjoys her chats and going out for a walk with people- although she apparently refuses to allow anyone to pick up a duster or hoover so it looks like I can’t’ get out of that one! It is making a massive difference to me to know that there is someone else around to help out too. mum’s neighbour was also very interested in what you do – she has Rheumatoid Arthritis and while she is independent at the moment she says it’s nice the know who’s around if she needs help in the future.”

I am writing to say how gratefuI I was yesterday with Sams help. She absolutely transformed my kitchen by giving it a long needed tidying and sprucing . As usual she tackled it with her usual cheerful manner.
I must admit I really look forward to her visits they are always so well planned with various activities such as trips out or girlie afternoons of pampering sessions which for someone like me is so therapeutic. She always arrives with a cheery grin with a nothings too much attitude.
She’s a real asset to your company.
Thanks Shirley x
But around a year and a half ago it became apparent that my mother’s memory was not as good as it had been, this situation became a steep learning curve for me with a lot more visits arranging doctors’ appointments and several hospital visits with the outcome that Mother was diagnosed with Dementia, this was devastating for both me and my Mother and it became apparent that she would need a lot more assistance with weekly visits to do everything for her.
Due to the pressures of living hundreds of miles away it was difficult but you just find yourself going into auto pilot this went on for just over a year until it became apparent that I wasn’t managing and needed some assistance as the care requirements were becoming more and more and I felt that I was swimming against the tide and not getting anywhere.
Mothers Dementia was now a lot worse and I needed some help so I spoke to my Mothers GP and he gave me a list of local care companies. I rang Ann Mason Care and this is when suddenly I felt that I could take a breath
After ringing Ann Mason they sent round one of their staff Sarah who was a breath of fresh air and made me realise very quickly that I wasn’t managing. Sarah was professional and just knew what to do and put my mind at rest in a very short time, she arranged an intervention by the care team in a very short time which was fantastic. The care was first class but sometimes challenging due to my Mother Dementia.
Thank you Ann Mason !!!”
