My Care Worker, Karin, is so efficient, capable and caring. She has proved to be intelligent, reliable, conscientious and her integrity is undoubted. She has been a huge factor in my living in my own home with all my health problems.
Her assistance in so many ways has contributed greatly to me achieving this and hopefully will continue for some time to come. I am very lucky to have the assistance of such a capable and understanding Care Worker from Oxley Home Care.
