They genuinely want to look after him and this was demonstrated when he got lost recently whilst out. The staff raised the alarm quickly and stayed with the family until he was found safe and well. They regularly put themselves out to go the extra mile, for example when they took an incorrectly dispensed medication box back to the chemist to be corrected. I would not hesitate to recommend the company.”Chief Operating Officer forMears, Bernadette Walsh, said, “We are delighted that service users and their family and friends have recognised the hard work of our care workers – their recommendations speak volumes about the effort and determination of everyone involved.”
