Excellent

Sylvia is kind, caring and conscientious and cared for my mum who recently passed away with love, compassion and empathy. She is a professional with excellent knowledge in dementia care which she applied when caring for mum. I thank Sylvia for taking such wonderful care of my mum and her wee dog and helping make mum feel happy and safe and secure in her last months. I highly recommend Sylvia to anyone looking for a reliable carer with a professional attitude.
