“.. I would like to say thank you for the past four years. I have adored working and being part of the Care team. I can't tell you how proud it makes me to wear the uniform; being stopped in petrol stations, supermarkets, parks and being asked, " excuse me, are you a carer?" Turning around with a huge smile and replying " yes I am" Which then leads to lovely conversations about their past or current relatives or friends who have had the pleasure of our services or have been looking us up for the future.”
