Referral Fees - not for Chosen with Care
The Sunday Times newspaper has today exposed the referral scandal where agents receive huge commissions for referring clients suffering from addictions to companies who want access to those clients. Making this practice public is long overdue. Unfortunately is also prevalent in the care industry.
Chosen with Care does not take referral fees from any of the companies that it recommends. ...
My wife Doreen is disabled and has Alzheimer's. If that were not enough, she recently fell and broke her arm! At that moment my life changed, as I was no longer able to continue caring for her.
A friend suggested that I talk to Debbie. We arranged a meeting at which she advised that I should have a plan for the future; we first agreed that the plan should be to get Doreen back home. Debbie recommend that I get Doreen out of hospital as soon as possible and into a care home for respite, advising me what to look for when selecting the home (vital). We further went into any requirements our own home might need to enable Doreen's safe return. Once home, Home Care will be needed, and Debbie again had all the contacts to provide this to meet my needs.
I will not go into other offerings on her menu - needless to say she has all the answers and was able to lift the burden from my shoulders at a very stressful time. A very big thank you Debbie as our plan is beginning to take shape.
