It was lovely for my mum and sisters to meet Kim yesterday, she came across as very caring and competent however our needs didn't align with her skillset/preferred activities so unfortunately she felt she would not be a good fit for us.

Kim has done an introductory session with my mum, and is booked for a paid session next week. From my dealings with Kim so far, I believe her to be a very professional, capable and honest carer.
