Tony is often the first person that many callers will speak to and he is able give them assurance that a member of our team will take ownership of their problem and provide the advice, guidance and research they need to choose the best care setting for their relative.
“I am privileged and proud to be part of an organisation whose ethos is to help people who are often going through an immense personal trauma.
“Having gone through this process with a member of my own family, I know only too well how the prospect of moving into a care home can affect the individual and family members.
“Taking the immediate anxiety away from people often gives them a great sense of relief and allows them to focus on other more important tasks while we get on with the job of researching homes.”
