Kind Words

"When I was much younger, my mother worked in home care and I always wondered what it was about that job that made her happy—and now I know!

There is a very real sense of satisfaction with each and every shift, knowing that you have made someone else’s day just that little bit easier to get through… Comforts of Home - Care cares, and that is the best way of describing what we all do every time we see our clients ( we care ) and that makes all the difference in the world for them and for me.”
