“Better Caring has empowered me to select my own workers and decide on what type of support I receive and when. And because I have lower admin fees I have more hours of support for the same funding. It’s a common sense solution and one that allows me to live my life as I choose. And because my workers and I have chosen each other it means we have a close working relationship from the very beginning.”
“Although I am only 102, I do need a little Better Caring and I must say that it’s absolutely wonderful.”
“The best benefit of using Better Caring was having a really personalised, flexible service that delivered above and beyond our expectations. It’s become a new life for my father. His life is improving, and it’s marvellous.”
