Darren Housden, UK Business Development Manager, Comfort Keepers UK, said:
“If your plans take you away from your loved one this Christmas then Comfort Keepers can help. We offer personalised care and our flexible services mean we are on hand to offer support, be it for a few hours or weeks at a time. During the Christmas period we often step in to support families concerned that due to other family commitments, there is a loved one unable to travel so remains at home. Our staff have delivered a range of services to ensure such individuals have been looked after, are cared for and have not missed out on any of the festive spirit. Via our online Family-Connect-Programme we are able to ensure that people can indeed go away, enjoy themselves and at the same time be 100% satisfied that all is ok with their elderly relative. Our message therefore is if you are looking to go away over Christmas, even if it’s for a day, please contact us as soon as possible so we can make a plan with you.”
