“My father was unable to speak due to a previous stroke which made him additionally vulnerable, he was also fiercely independent for his entire life and did not like the idea of needing a carer.
Delwar’s approach was gentle, patient and above all kind. He never tried to impose his will on my father, rather waited until he was invited to help and observed where he was needed. After gently but persistently being available to help my father do what he needed help with, he gained my father’s trust to the point where my father would ask and invite Delwar to help him with things he was having trouble accepting he needed help with. When my father came back home from hospital for the last time, I could tell he was happy and emotional to see Delwar again and greeted him like the friend he had become.
I’ll always be grateful to Delwar for making the last months of my father’s life that little bit easier.”
