January 2022 – Carer of the month


Ravi* joined Elder last winter, and has cared for her client Stephen ever since.

“Ravi came to care for my 99 year old father, Stephen, at the beginning of November 2021, and she has completely won him over!  She has gained his trust and he is happy for her to do his personal care, something his previous carers were not often permitted to do. He is always well presented, his general mood has improved, and there is a genuine friendship.”

“She is completely devoted to Dad, and has been with him for over ten weeks with no break.  He now has a routine which suits him as he spent over 30 years in the Army. 

Ravi has a lovely sunny disposition and gets the best out of Dad – their laughter can often be heard. Dad now listens to his music too – something he was not so keen to do since Mum died in June 2021, Ravi has coaxed him and he seems relaxed and happy.

Ravi is also proactive of Dad, and vets prospective visitors to make sure it’s safe for them to visit.  She goes above and beyond, although she says she is just doing her job. We quite simply love Ravi!  and the peace of mind she brings is a wonderful thing.

Ravi cooks him nourishing meals and he especially loves her fruit cakes! She has endless patience and spends lots of time chatting with him and finding out what he likes. Dad’s skin colour is good, and his feet and ankles are not swollen anymore – which is a great improvement. Dad’s mobility is limited but her encouragement is always evident.
