I have one word to describe Elmare and that is ‘fantastic’. She managed to win over my reluctant father on her very first visit and she obviously really cares about her clients. My sister and I are very happy.

Elmare Harper does an excellent job. I hope she is having a happy holiday with her daughter on the Isle of Man, but I will be delighted when the day comes along that she returns to me . She is a forthright talking South African lady who does an extremely efficient carer job and I look forward to having her return to look after me.
