Case Study One
Kathleen was a client with Melody Care for 4 years. She had lived in her village of Thursley, Hindhead for many years and had a good network and support from her friends and family. She enjoyed playing Bridge with her friends which she got her out on a regular basis. She wanted to remain independent in her own home but needed more assistance with her Personal Care, Housekeeping and Social Activities.
With a Live-In Carer, Kathleen could continue to live her life but with the support and companionship that comes with a live-in carer.
After she passed away in April 2017 at the age of 99 years, her family expressed their gratitude to Melody Care for all the work they had done.
Kathleen’s daughter expressed her gratitude in these kind words:
It is so sad that my wonderful mother has died but she was so well looked after by Dana and I shall ever be grateful to Melody Care for putting her in our direction.
The 4 years she has been with my mother have been fantastic and her caring and professionalism combined with her sense of fun and humour have enabled my mother to enjoy her old age in her own home with very little illness right up to the last few days of her life at the age of 99.
Dana is an absolute jewel to be treasured.
Case Study Two
Mary is an 82 year old lady who was diagnosed with Dementia in December 2012. After her husband passed away a few years, she wanted to remain in her own home in Winchester, Hampshire but her family were concerned that she needed more support as they did not live nearby. They approached Melody Care who went to visit Mary and her family at her home to discuss her needs and discuss a potential care plan.
Mary has had the same carer, Kate, for the last 2 year and has developed a close relationship with her. Although Mary’s Dementia has deteriorated, she still remains in her own home with the support from Melody Care.
The service we have received has been first rate, in terms of the carer and her ability and approach to meet my mother’s needs and do little extra things.I like the fact that the Carer uses an electronic system to record what
they do and I can log into this so I can see how Mum is doing even though I am far away. I would definitely recommend Melody Care.
