Sandra Wanless with client John

“She can’t do enough for me”….

These are the words of John, a gentleman with Motor Neurone Disease and mobility problems, who finds the support from his care worker life changing.

John started receiving care and support from Sandra Wanless two years ago.  Despite his family’s best efforts, he reached the point where he needed more than they could provide and so they looked into getting professional help.

John says: “I wouldn’t allow just anyone into my home but I quickly built up a great relationship with Sandra and I feel very comfortable in her company.”

Sandra, who works with Guisborough based home care company Caremark (Redcar & Cleveland) initially visited John for a few hours each day, helping him with personal care and his other needs.

She recognized however, that he would also benefit from a community call.  Contact was made with his social worker and this was added to his care package.

Now life has really opened up for him with twice weekly visits into his local town.

Sandra takes John in his wheelchair to do some shopping and whilst there they visit the local café.

Having someone to support him with social activities means that each week,  John is now able to spend time with his granddaughter which he really looks forward to.

“She can’t do enough for me,” he said, “and I can’t speak highly enough of her.”

Providing tailor made care and support for people of all ages and abilities is what Caremark (Redcar & Cleveland) offer.  Whether it is helping with something substantial or simply a fulfilling a simple need, nothing is out of reach.

Vulnerable people are enabled and empowered to lead fulfilling and independent lives and to remain living in their own homes, where they want to be.
