Cherish have been very supportive in allowing me to change my care package as and when I require. Having a flexible care package that is not restricted by time and durations, has enabled me to be much more independent.As a result I am able to receive my care when I want and on my terms. This has also been very cost effective for me and enabled me to spend my budget on other activities as well, like visiting the theatre.
While I was trying to organise care for my Husband, it was becoming difficult to find an agency that understood our culture. We approached Cherish after the recommendation from a friend whom had positive experiences with Cherish and straight away I knew they are the right fit for us. They fully understood our customs and were able to tailor a care package to meet our specific cultural needs. Our carer comes from the same region of India as us and that has helped to meet the dietary requirements.
Cherish Home Care were able to organise a Cantonese speaking carers whom could accompany my Mum and Dad to the Chinese New Year celebrations in Birmingham. I never thought I would find a care company that could fully understand our customs and traditions so well.
My grandmothers carer has become like a family member to us. While we are all at work, Cherish has been able to arrange a dedicated care service in which my grandmother is accompanied to the hospital or doctors surgery. My grandmother does not speak English and having a carer who speaks the same language as her has brought a lot of happiness to me and my family. Her independence has been improved as my Grandmother can rely on her carer to help her communicate her exact needs to others.
