One of Caremarkís clients has shared how much its services mean to her and make her fight with dementia easier.

The home care franchise has demonstrated just how valuable its services can be, as itís shared the story of how carer Debbie has transformed the life of vulnerable client Doreen.

Doreen Daley, from Bromley, London, was diagnosed with Alzheimerís following the death of her husband. Unfortunately, she had no siblings or children who could help her with daily tasks and found that suddenly being alone made her feel very anxious.

However, since live-in carer Debbie arrived on the scene, Doreenís life has taken a turn for the better. Debbie, from the care franchise Caremark, now lives with Doreen for up to three weeks at a time and helps her with everything from medication to washing. The pair spend their days visiting shops, feeding ducks and indulging in Doreenís love of knitting and Doreen says that she ďcouldnít existĒ without Debbieís help.

Doreenís Alzheimerís makes her vulnerable and forgetful, but Debbie explained that she loves working with her.

"Doreen is a lovely lady who I adore with all my heart. Her Alzheimerís means that sometimes she forgets things, but I keep her mind active by continuously interacting with her on topics she is passionate about, such as knitting and animals."

Debbie explained that although her work is tough, itís worth the effort.

"Being a live-in care and support worker means I can assist Doreen in any way she needs me, 24 hours a day. It can be challenging sometimes, but the sense of satisfaction I get from knowing I have made a difference in her life is enormous."

Sharon Dhillon, Managing Director of the Caremark Bromley franchise, added:

ďCare and support workers like Debbie are the lifeblood of their local communities. They are treasured by their clients."
