10 November 2017 – Appreciation card from a client’s sister of Woollahra, Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs

Dear Wendy,

Thank you more than we can say, for looking after G with such cheerfulness and practicality. You enable my sister to lead as normal a life as she possibly can, keeping up with her friends and having adventures too!

Much love
From the client’s sister

Appreciation from Daughter of Client who lives in St. Ives, on Sydney’s Upper North Shore:

Dear Wendy,

Words are not enough – the love, the laughter, the adventures you gave mum – they were unique. But beyond that, you were always trying to make things better for her – more comfortable, more safe, more yummy!

Thank you also for those final days – you took a lot of the fear and pain out of those times for Mum, and for us.

I hope you look at these 2 ducks (that used to sit in her bathroom) and remember all the times you led and she followed you – across many wonderful trips, drives, memories and meals – thank you for including Mum in your unique “pond”.

All our love for your future adventures.

Maxine & family.

Thank you email from the H family who lives in Bayview, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches:

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for organising Wendy to help my mother-in-law, Mrs H. She was absolutely fantastic and enabled both Marion and us to sleep at night knowing someone was looking after my father-in-law. You were wonderful in finding her so quickly and at such short notice. I can’t recommend Daughterly Care highly enough.

Return call from M:

She raved on about how fabulous Wendy and Louisa were and what a great help it has been having Daughterly Care looking after her parents after her dad is recovering from bypass surgery – he’s the carer of mum with Alzheimer’s.  She said, we really have the right people working for us and they were a support to her too.  An example M gave was, Wendy rang her to ask could she clean out the pantry with the help of her mother. Dad was very happy this job had been taken care of.  M said, this was fabulous and Wendy really knew how to handle her mum’s repetitive behaviour. Her mum was really excited when Wendy arrived a second time and M said, her father winked at her when this happened – the father had been reluctant to get care.  M is going to speak to her dad, thinks they will be using Daughterly Care again, in the future.

Wendy’s comments

After working with 3 other non-government organisations in community care positions, working with Daughterly Care for 7 years speaks for itself. Passion, drive, involvement and constant training is much more prevalent in the organisation than in any where else I have previously worked.
