Excellent

Angus is a diamond carer. He has worked with two clients of mine with brain injuries. He has a wealth of experience in this field and is patient, kind and proactive. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Angus has been excellent in helping my 89 year old father with dementia. He has persevered to challenge Dad's memory in a kind gentle way and encouraged and supported me constantly in this awful journey of dementia. Highly recommend Angus, who is constructive, positive and knowledgeable in this area.
