After a short spell in hospital, and then 3 weeks in bed upstairs recovering from shingles, I was very weak. The carers from Alina motivated and enabled me to return to normal living and my daily routine. They have assisted me with daily personal care for over 7 weeks. On their first visit, I felt able to tackle the stairs after weeks in bed. They have allowed me to regain much of my independence. The carers are much more than just carers, they have become good friends. I look forward to their visit each day. Thank you for all the care and help you have given me.
