Penwith Care

By ColinHudson | Thursday, October 24 2013

A truly caring and professional care provider

“I have nothing but praise and admiration for the care and professionalism display by Dana and her team during the end of life care for my brother in law Lawrence following a long and protracted illness. The care they gave was above and beyond what was previously offered. The difference in care and professionalism really mad a substantial difference to Lawrence and made him feel secure, safe and dignified. He had only had a single care provider before Penwith so was unable to make areal comparison until Penwith arrived. They took the time and care to make sure that Lawrence was correctly fed and hydrated, something which, in my opinion, was very much not in evidence. Although the team only tended for him for a couple of weeks the difference they made was unbelievable. Mandy and Dana made him feel important again and took the time to wash him, his hair and gave him back his dignity. I would recommend this CARE provider to anybody based upon my experience with them and their previous care provider. I have experience working in the NHS so understand what should and should not have been provided and Penwith more than met their obligations in terms of safety, care and patient safeguarding. They did not consistently smoke in the same bedroom as a dying man suffering from emphysema and on oxygen 24 hours a day. They also ensured that straws were available so that Lawrence could actually be given a drink. Not every care agency does this, despite what you may think.”

    Recommend highly for Caring Needs

    Penwith care offer an invaluable service. Dana Ambra and her team are providing a helpful caring and practical service in looking after my 94 year old mother .. she is able to remain in her own home with the daily visits from familiar people and it is such a relief for us knowing that someone is visiting her if we for one reason or another cannot get there that day. The carers are always cheerful and pleasant and a pleasure to talk to if there is ever a problem . Dana is always ready to go that extra mile in arranging help. Thank you Penwith Care for all your help..you are very much appreciated and I recommend them for care of your loved ones.

    A Great Relief

    We were worried about changing to a new team of carers when our original care provider folded, but we need not have worried. Dana arranged for her team to shadow the original team of carers to learn the unusual things about caring for someone with HD and within a few days my wife felt entirely comfortable and relaxed with the new team. We both now look forward to a cheerful and caring visit morning and evening and we get more laughter than worry nowadays. I would recommend Penwith Care to anybody without any reservations.

    nice to feel secure

    I am very fortunate that at a hour of great stress,owing to my previous carers who left suddenly without any warning I went into hands of Penwith Care. Stress was at once at an end. I had no more worries about who was coming,when they were coming or if they coming at all. It has been very nice to feel secure, added to that Dana Ambra and her team always take trouble to do more than necessary and make sure I am absolutely comfortable. They are very nice people and it is a pleasure to see they arrive. Highly recommended. Ask Dana for my contact details and I will be pleased to confirm in person. Mrs.H.R.Aspinall

    excellent care

    Penwith care provide excellent personal care. The communication and consistency of care has made all the difference to my 89 year old mother who was diagnosed with dementia almost a year ago. Before finding Penwith Care the services we could find were patchy and inadequate. Far from deteriorating over the year her mental and physical state has actually improved as she feels secure and cared for and is now able to make regular use of the excellent local Day Centre. This is how care for the elderly should be. Highly recommended. Ask Dana for my contact details and I will be pleased to confirm in person. Clive Pearce

    They really DO know the meaning of 'Care'

    Dana Ambra and her team at Penwith Care have been providing twice-daily personal care for my 67-year- old husband John since being diagnosed with brain tumours in June of this year. We have found them all to be not only highly professional and reliable but also personally very kind and considerate. They have helped John enormously not only with his personal care, but also with certain aspects of physical rehabilitation, ie, helping him to walk and encouraging him to do some of the more simple things for himself. Without doubt, their encouragement is helping him progress towards being more independent, and due to the respect and consideration they have shown he has suffered no loss of dignity in their care. Another very positive aspect for us has been the continuity of having familiar faces coming daily enabling us to build up not only trust, but also a friendly working relationship, which is so very important in our situation. I cannot recommended Penwith Care highly enough, in fact I have already done so to others needing care.
