Better Care Starts from the Heart
"Excellent and more. The day I met Lois was one of the best days of our families' life. It goes without saying the professional standard of care she gives to her 'Alleviate Family' is outstanding. Her personality wins over reluctant clients (my dad) and her care is delivered in a way that suits the individuals. The support she gave me living 100 miles away from my parents was priceless; getting an update every time she visited. I knew they were well looked after, happy and all their needs met. There was nothing beyond Lois's remit from personal care to hanging curtain poles! She has the patience of a saint and nothing is too much.  If you are lucky enough to become a Part of the 'Alleviate Family' you will never look back and will wonder why all care cant be like Lois."  - Trudie Tagert, 2017


"In 2018 Lois took over the care of my brother after a fall and traumatic time on a dream holiday in China left him anxious, fearful and essentially immobile.  She carefully put together a tailor made package and covered all aspects of his convalescence.  The change in my brother has been remarkable.  Lois has become not only his carer, but his friend.  She has given him back his strength, his mobility, his self-confidence, his dignity and vitally his independence.

Lois is one in a million! " Linda Wilkin, 2020

"Lois came recommended by a friend when we were in need of care for my elderly Mother, following a spell in hospital. From the moment we both met Lois, we knew we didn't need to look further. She was reassuring, confident, approachable and, most importantly, my Mother liked her immediately (a rare occurrence!) Lois proved to be considerate of my Mother's needs, reliable, efficient and more than willing to do pretty much anything asked of her. Her presence also enabled me to go on holiday. She was willing to be 'at the end of the phone' in case of problems whilst I was away and sent me reassuring text messages about my Mum's health. I'd highly recommend Lois as a carer"  - Tricia Armitage, 2016

"What Lois offered me was above and beyond care. I reached out for advice and assistance in making the right choices for Mum. It was a very stressful time. To make the right choices I needed professional help and guidance from an independent person who had my family's interest at heart. Lois offered a mediation service to help our family agree on the best care for loved ones. She made difficult situations bearable and helped me accept (without guilt) the decisions I needed to make. Compassion, integrity, professionalism, care, dignity and faultless reliability are all attributes that describe Lois." - Ria Jowle, 2018
