Testimonials

What people have said about us

“To the ellenor nurses, thank you so much for the care and support provided to X and family over the past few years. It is very much appreciated.”
Relative of patient
“Unfortunately, my husband X passed away on X. I feel compelled to write this note to you in thanks for all the help and guidance given to me whilst caring for X at home. During these terrible times of the pandemic, without the ellenor team I would have been completely alone. Special thanks to Julie and the team of nurses for their professionalism, kindness and never-ending patience. Also, thanks to Claire the Occupational Therapist. Many thanks again.”
Relative of patient
“I just want to say thank you for being there for my husband X during his recent illness. Nothing was too much trouble, it was such a comfort to me to know you were just a phone call away.”

ellenor: Helping People to Help One Another

When a closed group in the local community needed additional support in looking after one of their own as a medical condition progressed, it was ellenor to whom they turned. They knew that ellenor was able to help them offer sensitive, effective care to their friend within their own four walls, supporting them as they supported one another.
