“We first started to get worried about mum when she forgot she had water boiling on the stove, and after the passing of our dad she was really struggling on her own. We called HSS and organised to have a nurse come out and speak with us about her needs. We initially had a carer come and visit her every day for a couple of hours and when her condition started to worsen, we gradually increased the level of her care. Mum now has someone living with her 24 hours a day and we couldn’t be more grateful for the peace of mind it gives us knowing mum is in safe and caring hands whilst staying in the home we grew up in.” – Client testimonial
