Penny is a very hard working individual. I have known penny for the last 6 years, she has always been very supportive as a colleague.

Penny is a great listener, she is caring and puts others first, she is confident in what she does, and makes sure that the people she supports, receive a very high standard of care. Penny is very passionate and person centred when caring for others, she is quick thinker and copes well under pressure.

Penny will be perfect for the above role.

Suzanne and Penny have been caring for my 95 year old father following his long stay in hospital.  My father is very happy indeed with their support and frequently says how well he is being looked after.  The ladies are friendly, calm and very caring and help out in all sorts of ways I had not been expecting including doing bits of shopping for him when I have missed things.  I am very grateful to Suzanne and Penny not just for their support for him but for the load they have taken off my shoulders, it is a great comfort to the family to have them involved.
