Carer of the Month: Sheryl

Sheryl joined Elder back in October of 2018 and has provided more than 375 days of care ever since. She has been with a new client since the beginning of April and has gone above and beyond to help them find peace of mind:

“Sheryl has been an absolute godsend for my mum and our family. She is extremely professional, kind and caring and has put my mum totally at ease as this was her first time having a live-in carer. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for us all especially my mum as she has to learn to live without my dad who passed away in November.

“Even in such a short space of time, Sheryl has become part of our family and has adapted to my mum’s life. She would be a great carer for anyone. Can’t praise her enough.”
