Lesley came to see Dad on Saturday. She arrived on time and was cheerful and upbeat throughout the meeting. She took time to understand the circumstances and went through a number of questions and tests with Dad to ensure that she knew what needed to be addressed. She checked the bathroom and bedroom too to make sure that he had the right equipment and made contact with the GP surgery on Monday to ask for an Oocupational Health Visit. On hearing that Dad had been taken into hospital, she got in touch to pass on her best wishes and to let us know she was there to help if needed when he is discharged. All in all she was very pleasant, easy to get on with, confident and competent. She really made you feel that Dad would be looked after and it was a really refreshing change to have a health professional who was easy to deal with.
