Caring for others, particularly those with complex disabilities, alongside creative arts are the driving forces in my life. I am dedicated to delivering outstanding care and support, whilst utilising my creativity as inspiration to aid my services and the personal growth of my clients.
"I am the single mother of a young man with multiple extra needs. I have a very positive attitude and strive to ensure he has every support and opportunity available. Finding staff who understand isn't always easy. The home environment can be difficult to work in; maintaining professionalism within the family situation is a fine line. Consequently, we pick our staff with care. Finding Holly is a definite success! Her past experience is a bonus but an open and fresh approach brings many new ideas into our lives. We are all interested in creative pursuits and Holly certainly helps with that. Max loves art and enjoys many hours of painting and decoupage, among a variety of other media. Then onto one of Holly's other skills - getting Max out there on Instagram. We really value Holly as an employee but also as a family friend. Highly recommend!" - Claire, Max's Mum.

"Holly has now been helping me for two years and during a very difficult time, she has continued to be a reliable help and comfort. She is remarkably versatile and she will use her skills flexibly. For example, this year tending to the garden and the wildlife."
Previous reference: "Holly has been helping me now for a year now. She has proved to be invaluable and a joy to be with. She is both caring, competent and flexible. She willingly copes with anything which may arise from unexpected callers to squirrels in the chimney!"
"I'm a proud mum to my son who has severe developmental delay. He is 8 years old, uses a wheelchair, is non-verbal and we are waiting to hear back from clinical genetics to underline the cause of his disability. We are also waiting to hear if he has Autism. Two years ago I struggled to find respite for Kile- someone I could trust to take care of the most important person in my life, who could keep him safe and happy. A friend of ours received a business card of Holly's through the door which resulted in us meeting. After hearing about her past experience, qualifications and knowledge about supporting people with additional needs, I asked Holly to be our respite worker and on 16th Septemeber 2017, Holly started working with Kile. Since then, she has taken Kile out in public doing all sorts of activities and I'm so glad Kile has a respite worker like Holly. She really is incredible; all I want is what's best for my son and having Holly as his respite worker, I know he has the best... a truly lovely person who has my utmost respect and gratitude" - CJ, Kile's Mum.

"Holly provided much needed care and support for my Mum living with Alzheimer's Disease. Mum needed more support than family could provide to be able to stay at home, but was unlikely to settle well with the brief visits of a regular care package, so to have Holly visit for a longer spell with the flexibility to go out and about was perfect. Holly adapted to how Mum was feeling on each visit and took into account her dog Ollie at all times, respecting her wish to be as independent as possible. Holly made her feel that she was in charge at all times, being mindful of her preferences and wishes. I found Holly professional and efficient at all times, letting me know what they had been doing during visits and any concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend her services" - Kerry, Rose Mary's daughter.
