Miss R needed someone to help with the cleaning and laundry at home as she is disabled herself and both her parents have memory problems. She had tried private adverts which did not go well. “I thought I was not going to find anyone until I heard about Leeds Directory”. Miss R told us that dementia is difficult to deal with and she needed someone who understood her parents’ behavioural changes.
Miss R found Whiter Than White Housekeeping Services via the Leeds Directory and she couldn’t be happier with the work they do for her. “The Directory made it a lot easier, being able to browse the list at my own leisure. I like having the choice and viewing the reviews from other people. It is great that the Leeds Directory does the first layer of sifting.”
In addition, we were able to refer Miss R to the Memories Reminiscence Activity Library, another service by Care & Repair Leeds. She is now able to borrow fun books and activities to use with her parents, and they are delivered and collected to her house.
