“Thank you so much for everything you have done to find the perfect person for my mother and to fit around the family situation. You have been so thorough and supportive.” Host: Dr Scarlett M, London
"Thank goodness I picked up the phone, to ring you that day. After looking through various care companies and introductory agents, I finally found Home Help Companions. The whole process from start to finish was speedy very supportive and professional. You have matched me with a lovely family. I am sure I will be very happy here.
From a Companion's point of view, I am not so exhausted as I now have a day off each week as opposed to working a 7 day week, which the care agencies offer have as standard as well as being on a much lower pay and the dreaded zero hour contract which is worrying. Now at last, I have a proper contract and all the awkward negotiating you have done on my behalf. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I am extremely grateful. I am sure we will stay in touch."

"As well as being profoundly grateful for all your guidance,help and support I am genuinely impressed by your solid and thorough recruitment process that perfectly reflects your duty of care to both hosts and companions achieving thus a perfect symbiotic relationship for all.
You strive to ensure that as companions we get the optimal work/life balance so vital to give our best to our hosts and that hosts are cared for by loving, competent and experienced companions. I’m so glad I made the decision to contact you and will encourage and highly recommend other hosts and companions to do the same.Thanks again Julia and God bless you for your dedication to provide undoubtedly the best care on the market."
