Sithembiso started working with my mum on 23/09/2022 to date. She has been assisting with caring, companionship, housework, cooking and admin duties (e.g making appointments, helping with emails) . Themby is very reliable, flexible, trustworthy, and patient. She is very sociable and excellent at paying attention to details. She gets along very well with mum and the family when we visit - always bringing with her good humour. She cooks lovely dishes and mum enjoys them. Themby is very tidy and has been helping with prompting mum to take medication and checking mum’s oxygen levels when required. I can happily confirm that Themby is multiskilled and she always goes an extra mile to ensure that mum is safe and well. I am glad to recommend Themby without any reserves. +5 stars!

sithembiso worked with us for some few months through an agency. she was the best staff that agency sent to us to cover some of our shifts. She was very polite and never argued, she is always ready to go over and above just to see the service is functioning well. she was never late to resume her shift, she was very good with recording and administering meds, she knows what to do when she spot an error. she was able to adapt to the rapid changes that was made in the team, she was a big part of the team. By the time she is handing over to you after her shift, the entire house will be spotless, even my ops manager was prepared to buy her off her agency but unfortunately, she said the distance was too much for her to drive. whoever is employing Sithembiso will not regret it because she is very hard working, polite, clean and tidy.

We hired Sithembiso at short notice when our carer went off sick and she proved to be an absolute delight. Not only was she professional, polite and efficient but she bought a lovely smile and laughter to my parents home. She treated them with the upmost respect while being interested in who they were as people and I really can't thank her enough. Unfortunately for us she had another job to go to otherwise we would have loved to have kept her on permanently and we can only therefore wish her well for the future and thank her for her time, patience and for being so lovely.
