Lorna is PA to my husband, who is struggling with life after being diagnosed with mixed Dementia. Lorna has shown nothing but kindness and understanding of his very complex issues. Lorna gives constant support to him to enable him to live his life as normally as possible and still be able to function within the community. The job is very demanding and requires great patients, which Lorna consistently displays. My husband’s life would be very different without her, as a family, we cannot praise Lorna Shaw enough.
Facilitating my father’s needs solely on my own volition was a daunting task. Shaw Care’s work has made an invaluable positive impact on both my father’s and my own wellbeing. Shaw’s professionalism, compassion and overall dedication have enabled my father to continue his day to day life. A key quality worth highlighting of Shaw’s practise is their trustworthiness.
Lorna is the carer for my mother who suffered a stroke last year. For a few months we used a large care company who sent different carers every day with no consistence on times or personnel. Luckily we found Lorna who runs ‘her own small care business locally, she herself does most of mothers caring twice, every day, morning to get her out of bed and into the living room and all that entails, and night time back into bed and made comfortable for the night. She has developed a close relationship with my mother and goes the extra mile to ensure all her needs are met. Lorna fully supports mother and keeps her twice daily visits punctual so mother knows when she is arriving, mother likes to ‘help’ Lorna by doing what little she is able to. After mother’s major stroke in May 2019 at age 88, a personal touch, as Lorna provides is essential for my mother. The little touches gives mother the will to enjoy her life as much as is now feasible.
After being in hospital for weeks after suffering a stroke, which took my right side, my arm and my leg seemed useless, when I got back home and only had my eldest son to help me, who has health issues of his own, he found Lorna as a carer and she is a very kind person and has helped me such a lot, she seems to be always cheerful and so very helpful to me at all times, she has brought me on no end, if she had not been my carer, I would not have learned to stand or been able to take a few steps, she keeps me happy and I feel more positive, it’s fantastic.
I have used Shaw Care for over a year now, and have been very pleased with the care and service I have received. The care is for my husband and I have found that he has always been treated with respect and kindness. He always looks forward to seeing them.
My husband is totally disabled; bed bound, doubly incontinent, cannot move unaided, cannot feed or drink himself, and has been this way for over 4 years. During these years we have had numerous problems with carers/care companies and I was at my wits end towards the later part of 2019, then a leaflet came through my letterbox, I rang the number, Lorna came to see me the next day and our lives have been changed. I am so sincerely grateful that Lorna came into our lives, it seems our paths were meant to cross and be joined, and I simply do not know what we would do without her and her care team. S; Supportive H; Honest A; Approachable W; Wonderful C; Considerate A; Attentive R; Reliable E; Efficient.
I have nothing but gratitude that Shaw Care have given my mum over the past 18 months. Mum has had help with her morning and sometimes her evening care too. I trust the completely and they are more like friends than carers. Helping mum to be as independent as possible as her mobility isn’t too good. Keeping mum happy and giving me peace of mind that my mum who is 95, is in safe hands.
