Very helpful and professional. Burley Home Care can be relied upon to do exactly as agreed in the care plan. My mother looks forward to the care visits from the girls. I am also kept informed of all aspects of the care being provided. They go above and beyond the call of duty!
We are very happy with the staff and service that is being provided and have no concerns with any of the carers who all provide excellent care and support. The management team is very professional, organised and there to support and give advice.
We have been very pleased with the care mum has received from Burley's Home Care Services. The care and support from her carers have been excellent. They are very friendly and treat mum with dignity and are also prepared to go that extra mile. e also find the staff at Burley's Home Care Services office to be very welcoming, helpful and always offer to change arrangements regarding visits to mum, when requested. Would not hesitate to recommend Burley's.
My mother and I are delighted with the very caring and professional service offered by Burley's. The small team looking after my mother is efficient and also kind, interested, friendly and caring. The service is run by a committed manager with high standards; she undertakes care herself as well as organising and monitoring the work of others. We have found the service flexible and the staff constantly concerned to meet mum's changing needs.
Burley's Care was recommended by our doctor - thank heavens he did! - don't know what we would do without their care and help. All the staff and carers we have met and come here to help my husband have been excellent, even he has commented how he likes all the carers who tend him and he, unfortunately, has Alzheimer's. So a big thank you to Burley's Care.
We are extremely happy with all the care that all the staff give. All of my father-in-law's needs are met with kindness and dedication. All staff are very competent when facing problems that need immediate attention.
