What our carers say

I got in touch with my amazing recruiter Donna, with whom I’ve worked with in the past and is a person I totally trust. Donna spoke to me about Abicare and I said I’m in! After completing all the paperwork and training I accepted a placement. I’m happy in my placement. I feel very well supported, firstly by my manager who has been there for me for anything and everything, and then from the company that listens to its carers and solves issues ASAP. It couldn’t have been better!

– Stamatoula Sourlatzi, Live-in carer from Greece

Donna helped me join Abicare about three months ago and I’m so pleased that I am a Live-in carer with Abicare! They have a number of amazing managers who are supportive and dedicate a lot of their time to listen to my needs and give me the answers that I need! So far, I’m very happy to have joined Abicare and I’m grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been given to work with them. I would recommend Abicare to whomever is interested in starting or continuing a career in the caring industry, as there are many opportunities available.
