My wife and I first made the acquaintance of Selvi A. about 9 years ago when she became a full time carer/housekeeper for an elderly, ailing and disabled family relative until his death a few months ago. She had held a number of domestic service posts prior to commencing a career as a live in carer. During the past year or so Selvi was constantly in attendance at her patient's bedside both at home and during several spells of hospitalisation. She organised and administered his medication as well as managing his domestic and personal needs. As his condition steadily deteriorated she applied herself in a most commendably selfless manner. My wife and I have always been greatly impressed by Selvi's dedicated and cheerful care for her terminally ill patient. Indeed, we believe that professionally trained NHS Staff could not have outperformed her. Added to which her calm, confident and discreet disposition must also be noted. With no hesitation whatever I recommend Selvi A. as a person who would be a capable and trustworthy asset in any care/nursing environment.

Selvi looked after my mum after her operation. She cared for my mum with care and compassion and she was professional at all times. She not only cared for her personally but she also talked with my mum a lot, which I believe prevented her from getting depressed. I would recommend Selvi as a carer to everyone as she was remarkable with my mum.

Selvi A. is one of the most professional and caring care-workers I have ever worked with. Selvi has chosen her profession because she really enjoys spending time with people and caring for people. This is her greatest gift, of working closely with those who receive her care, but also with relatives in supporting the individual in a holistic manner. Selvi has had varied experiences, and has cared for clients with a variety of conditions. Feedback from clients and relatives has always been positive and complementary. Selvi has demonstrated a keen interest in keeping her knowledge up to date, and is an enthusiastic learner. Whether through formal courses or by attending discussions, Selvi's interest is guided by what is best for her client and all decisions are made in their best interest. I can carry on, but in essence, I couldn't recommend Selvi more highly.

When I needed a carer to support my mother with eating and drinking during a long inpatient stay, I was fortunate enough to find Selvi available at short notice. I believe Selvi contributed significantly to the improvement of my mother's condition over the next few weeks. She has a very positive attitude and encouraged my mother to eat and drink and chatted to her. She was very willing to respond to other requests, such as taking my mother off the ward in a wheelchair, and buying fruit and lattes for her. I found Selvi always particularly polite, very prompt at replying to messages, and extremely good at communicating what was happening with mum on the ward. She texted me at the beginning and end of every visit with an update, which was very helpful. Selvi was always professional, reliable and flexible with arrangements, and she is a warm-hearted and caring person.
