MS: A cruel disease…

We looked after a lovely gentleman called Geoff for 8 of the 20 years he suffered from Multiple Sclerosis.

Sadly he passed away in February. His daughter and I became quite close and she has written this lovely testimonial which says it all:

“With circumstances thrust upon me, I was suddenly responsible for organising care and companionship for my father who had already suffered with Primary Progressive MS for 20 years. MS is a cruel disease; it took my father piece by piece. Without the support from Bunbury and their carers, I don’t think I could have coped. They have helped me, not only with the care planning and the funding I needed from the local authority but also given me emotional support.

Our last carer, Bonnie, was due to start her 5th year with us, when my father sadly passed away. She was fabulous! She was loyal, immaculately clean, made delicious home cooked food, and gave top notch care. With me trying to raise my family and look after my father, I knew I could rely and trust my carers, which took a huge weight from my shoulders.

Before Bunbury, we used agencies who seemed to take largest share of the money and the actual carer was paid pitifully. You know what they say; ‘you pay peanuts, you get monkey’s’, and we ran into difficulties when the quality of carers did not match my father’s and my family’s needs. They were affordable, which left enough money in the pot to pay the carers a decent wage. We immediately noticed the difference in the quality of care and the abilities of their carers .

I’m so grateful I had Bunbury Care behind me these last years of my dad’s life. I wish to thank them all for being there for me and my father. They are a ‘5 star’, agency with a great management team who keep things running as they should”.
