Thank you for all your help and support over the last 2 years, I have loved my role in the company and it has given me confidence and belief in myself.
Thank you so much for all your support over the past 18 months. I don’t think I’d be where I am today if it hadn’t been for you, your amazing business and belief in me. Thank you for all the amazing and sometimes challenging experiences, I won’t forget them.
I would like to tell you how shocked I was that my son took to your enabler and yourself so well! He is normally very nervous when meeting people, I couldn’t believe how much he spoke! Normally he just nods his head and doesn’t give eye contact so I’m very very pleased with how well it went this evening, WOW
I would like to say a big thank you to you and your staff for providing care at such short notice. I really appreciate the lengths you went to, to organise the care and I know the family were also very appreciative of your service.
I just want to say thank you so much for the help and support you have given us enabling our son to secure employment. We sure couldn’t have done it without your help. A huge thank you to the enablers for going to the interview, the social do, all training and induction sessions. The late finishes and early starts. Opportunity Care has been fantastic and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. May your organisation go from strength to strength.
Just a thank you for all the support you have given our son, and all the hard work you have put into the sessions he has spent with you. We wish you all the luck with your great business and I’m sure we will see you around.
I would like to thank you so much for your time, effort and care that you have given for our son whilst he was in your care. It has meant alot to my husband and I that you have been his carers, thank you so much.
I have known Louise for 8+years as both an enabler to my son and an employer/manager of support staff for my son who has autism.
I have found Louise always considers the needs, wishes and feelings of the child as paramount. She uses a flexible approach and has the ability to adapt to any situation, for example, if my son was having a good day, she would devise activities to challenge and amuse him. If a bad day, she would reduce the level of activity to support him. She adopts are very individualistic approach and has the ability to find innovative ways to overcome any obstacle in order to facilitate the child’s enjoyment. Louise is a passionate and firm believer in the right of disabled children to be treated equally in society and I am aware of many occasions where she has advocated for my son’s rights. I know that Louise set’s herself very high standards when it comes to her professional practice. She possesses an immense amount of knowledge, skill and experience and definitely practices what she preaches. In her dealings with staff, she expects similar high standards but is also prepared to support and guide them to develop the required skills. I have every confidence that Opportunity Care will provide a unique service and I would highly recommend this service.
We have been receiving respite care from Louise for a few months now for our 8 year old daughter who has severe learning difficulties.
Louise is a friendly person and I immediately felt at ease with leaving my daughter in her care, Louise has looked after Aimee overnight and also babysat for her so myself and my husband can enjoy time together in the evenings.
Louise is also Aimees helper at Brownies which she loves. Louise runs a playscheme in the holidays and Aimee has had some lovely days out including Pennywell farm and an aquarium. She always has an enjoyable time when with Louise which puts my mind at ease and lets me get on with things or take the smaller children out where its difficult to go with a wheelchair.
We first met Louise during the initial home visit that the company undertake to discuss our child’s needs and a chance for everyone to meet. Louise was professional and put us at ease by wanting to talk and observe our son so she could see how he behaved in his comfort zone.
During the visit Louise made it as informal as possible and it never felt like the paperwork was being the lead in the conversation. We never once felt as if we were answering questions but more information was coming across through conversation.
Louise explained how the company worked and gave examples of activities she could do with our son. The moment we knew we would choose Opportunity Care to provide their service was during the paperwork my son approached Louise and she immediately engaged him in an activity and talked to him. It was this putting my son first instead of paperwork that wanted us to use Louise’s company as the value of children first is a priority that we agreed with.
I met Louise from when I was about 7, I have known her for a long time. When I was young she helped me with my work in school, then after that I went to another school but Louise still helped me with my behaviour.
I use to sleep at her house because I needed a break from my home. It was good staying at her house and I liked playing with her children and seeing Jhi, it was fun. I behaved there because they had strict rules but I liked it because it helped me learn how to behave. I have stopped going now because I am grown up but I still go and visit them all.
