I am a full-time carer for my husband and am able to have 4 hours of companion care for my husband so that I can have time to go out to fulfil commitments, go shopping or for a walk. This time will get even better when lockdown ends and I will be able to socialise with my friends. We have a lovely companion and we both look forward to her visits. She has taken time to listen to him and they talk together. I often hear animated conversation and laughter when I come back from my walk. I know that if my husband needs a drink or a snack that he will be well provided for. He loves to go out in his wheelchair for a walk. I am grateful to Alina for providing continuity by having the same companion each time and all the time and the care taken to match the package to our needs. This has made a big difference to both our lives.
