Live-In Care Client Tributes

Sir Edward Heath KG MBE

I beg to move, That this House do now adjourn.

Sir Edward Heath died yesterday after a long illness. I am sure that the whole House would like to join me in thanking the team of carers from OxleyCare who looked after him in the last few years. I know how grateful Ted was to them.

I join the Prime Minister in paying tribute on behalf of Conservative Members to the memory of Sir Edward Heath, and also in paying tribute to those at OxleyCare who looked after him so devotedly in the last few years.

From Our Clients

"I owe you and all the carers from OxleyCare a huge debt of gratitude for your kindness and support over many years.  My Mother so appreciated being allowed to stay in her own home."
Mrs C.

"How clever is your 'matching'.  Had we designed a carer it probably would not have been as excellent as the wonderful Anita.  Thank you so much she was a joy to have around - and even liked my dogs ... thank you to you for your excellent and professional help."
Mrs J.

“In the three years of my wife's illness the care she received from OxleyCare was head and shoulders better than any other agency.  I cannot recommend them more highly." 
The Earl of N.

"I simply can't thank you enough for all your help this last year - I could not have managed without OxleyCare, and your wonderful carers - they have all been wonderful."
Mrs H.

"I cannot tell you how much I dreaded the thought of someone coming to live in this small cottage and even more, to look after me.  However, I can't speak too highly of Andrea - sensitive, intelligent, a lovely sense of humour - in fact a pleasure to have around."
Mrs D.

"Linda has made such a difference in our lives; she is kind, compassionate, tactful and sensitive and has a good sense of humour."
Lady D.

"Thank you so much for providing a carer to allow me to take a break from caring for my darling husband. I need not have worried about leaving him to go to France as June took such good gentle care of him in my absence."
Mrs O.

"I now realise what a burden has been lifted from my shoulders.  By cheerfully taking over many routine tasks, she has freed me to do the things I enjoy."
Lady B.

"Colleen cared so professionally and so gently for my mother in her last few days. We were so grateful that she could stay at home. It would have been impossible without Colleen’s help."
Mrs R.

"I am so relieved to have Heather; she has taken away all my stress and anxiety by taking over the running of the house and all the daily chores".
Lady F.

"Living at home was quite an essential for my wife.  May I thank you for all the help which you gave to make that possible."
 Mr N.
