“I have known Dara for quite some time now and must say she provides excellent care to those in need. She is kind caring and conscientious. She keeps her clients welfare as her top priority and has a strong ethical approach to her work. I would trust Dara without hesitation when needing care for a loved one. I highly recommend her service.”

“At the absolute lowest point in my life while caring full time for my wife Dara came into my life. I cannot thank Dara enough for the care she gave my wife. Compassionate, Caring and Competent are just three words of many I could use for her. No half measures here! She is so caring that she even took the time to ask myself and my children how we were doing on a regular basis, often offering valuable advice to us from her wealth of knowledge as a care assistant. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dara, a lovely lady inside and out with a wealth of experience.”

“Dara starting caring for my Dad when he was at advanced stage in a rare neurological disease. The kindness, patience and professionalism with Dad was second to none. Dara has a calm and nurturing way about her.  She always ensured dad was given his dignity at all times. She took us all as a family under her wing. Not only would Dara help Dad with his exercises, have given him a shower, she would have a pot on the stove and a bread in the oven! My Dad was privileged to have had Dara care for him.”
