“Maria is an extremely competent carer, kind and understanding She fits in perfectly with our family life, and my life is considerably easier now. She sings with my husband, and is always making him laugh, he is so much happier now. We trust her implicitly and we don't know what we would do without them. All the family gets along with them, and they're very much part of the family now.”
