Home Care Testimonials From Health Professionals
What does well-known speaker and author, Dr Helena Popovic think of Daughterly Care?
Daughterly Care has been helping me look after my now, 84 year old Father for over four years since my Mother died. He has mild vascular dementia which effects his short term memory. He needs prompting to eat and to engage in activities of daily living.
When Dad sees one of the wonderful ‘daughters’ from Daughterly Care walk into the house, his face lights up and he immediately comes out with a compliments. They are able to draw out his sense of humour and he loves going for walks, playing darts and doing jigsaw puzzles with them.
Most of all, I am so grateful for their kindness, patience and genuine delight in engaging with him. They have also learnt and continue to learn, what is important and meaningful to him. I can see he feels respected and valued.
There is no greater need for a human being than to feel appreciated and that is exactly what Daughterly Care do for Dad and me.
Thank you so much – not only for the practical assistance, but the heartfelt care you give to both of us.

This afternoon, Dr M wanted us to know that he had a lovely visit from RN Helen yesterday and he is so grateful that she was able to visit him. He said Helen was “absolutely delightful” and cannot thank her enough.
Dr M said Helen was able to make a lot of suggestions about end of life care that he didn’t know about or had not contemplated. Helen is going to chase a few things up for him and will be in touch with him again.
