Customers reviews

What do customers say about our service?

“I arranged a live in carer for my 95 year old friend. Easter 2020 my friend was taken ill and had to go into hospital. It became apparent that she could no longer look after herself. Social services arranged for her to go into a care home. She was not happy in the care home and wanted to come home. After a lot of searching I found the company Safehands. Our friend owns her own house and has always lived on her own. Since July 2020 she has had a live in carer who has become a friend and companion. The care costs no more than the care home she was in. She has 1 - 1 care 24/7 365 days a year. She is happy and content in her own home. Would definitely recommend Safehands.”

“I have recently used Safehands live in care for 11 nights, for my son. The processes from beginning to end were very professional, and helpful, and the carer who was allocated to stay in my home, was a perfect match for my sons needs. The care plan devised, and the attention to detail in planning this was exceptional. I was understandably apprehensive, however I need not have worried. I would have no reservations in using Safehands again, and recommending their service to others. My home was left beautifully clean and tidy, and the carer showed the utmost respect for my home, and to my son throughout his employment here. Many many thanks to your impeccable service.
