What Our Clients Have To Say About Us…
We are proud that clients and their family frequently offer us positive feedback. Here are just a few things they have had to say about Companions and its services.
Mum has employed Companions for the past 6 months. She felt desperate for assistance…..Companions were local to mum and had a flexible approach to homecare….and she felt she could ask for more help at short notice if she needed it, and did so on several occasions.
Companions have great experience of treating the elderly and know their ways far better than I could possibly understand. Mum’s health has deteriorated and for safety purposes needs full time care now. Companions have helped me find a suitable placement and for that I will always be grateful.
Mr B son of Mrs B
Just a few lines to tell you about Companions [of] Saddleworth. I have them for a short visit on weekday mornings. They make my bed and change the sheets, (which I find difficult) and assistance with other things that I struggle with. Always on time and able to chat. They provide friendship for me, also.
Mrs A P.
We have used Companions at various times for over seven years to support my mother and her husband and more recently my husband’s mother and father in their own home.
The staff at Companions are flexible, reliable and totally trustworthy and have enabled our parents to maintain the independence they needed to remain in their own homes.
The service is very professional and we would highly recommend them.
Family of Mrs S.
I have been my wife’s carer for five years; she now needs care both day and night. Arriving at a need for a regular, undisturbed nights sleep I contacted Companions of Saddleworth earlier this year about my problem. They solved it!
[One of the Companions team] now comes every two weeks and cares for my wife throughout the night, which gives me an uninterrupted and refreshing nights sleep. My wife is fully relaxed with [Companions]. Thank you Companions for your professional and friendly care for us both.

Mrs L. E. and Family
“My husband has had Alzheimers for 10 years and I have been his sole carer for all that time. Eighteen months ago, I began to feel the strain so contacted Companions Saddleworth Ltd for help.
Since then, someone has come every week, without fail, to keep him company for a few hours so I could have some time to myself.
Who cares for the carers – COMPANIONS do.”
Mrs S. W.
“Companions have been looking after my mother for over 6 years and have made it possible for her to live independently for nearly 2 years, now. From my point of view, their reliability, common sense approach and high standards of care mean that I have peace of mind and don’t have to worry, as I know she is safe and well. From my mother’s point of view, Companions are her carers and friends who enrich her life with their compassion, friendliness and fun.”
Mr G. & Mrs A. C.
“Companions are a wonderful group of compassionate, caring, reliable, dynamic, flexible people, highly organised and multi talented. We could be away at work, happy and safe in the knowledge that this dedicated team had Mum’s best interests at heart. In our absence we knew she was safe and being taken care of.”
Mrs J.S. and Mrs S.T.
“My sister was in need of care and attention – something I could not give her living at the other end of the country. K had arthritis and the help and care offered made it a less painful affair. As K’s dementia increased other help was offered [by Companions]. A carer came early morning… checked she’d had breakfast and necessary pills… other meals were prepared for her… Susan took her out… nothing was too much trouble. K was well cared for in every respect – thanks to Companions.”
“Due to their caring approach, she [my mother] considers them as friends and I would not hesitate to recommend Companions to anyone needing a similar service.”
“Thank you very much for your service and consideration you gave my mother in helping her to keep in her home for as long as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for your staff in taking her out on Saturdays and trying to keep her life normal.”
