“They define the best that domiciliary nursing can be.”

“The fact that I have used Cavendish Homecare for over five years is testimony to my reliance on their competence and expertise.

The quality of their staff reflects the standards and leadership of Mairead Liston. If I could suggest the ‘brand’, it would be ‘compassionate high-quality nursing’… the compassion comes first.

Mairead supplies staff who are calm and comforting, and never judgmental. She is completely clear in the financial aspects of her services, but will not be pushed to undermine safety or standards to protect cost.

I have required help in emergencies, and can usually get someone on-site within an hour. The needs of the patient dictate the type of staff supplied, whether it is a Carer or a highly trained Registered Nurse.

On occasion, I have insisted that a dying patient in hospital is attended by one of Cavendish Homecare’s Registered Nurses, to provide compassionate support to counterbalance the technological insensitive mechanicals of the situation.

I think Mairead Liston leads a team who define the best that domiciliary nursing can be. A dying patient returning home with fear in their eyes is transformed to a state of serenity – pain-free, respected in their individual wishes, and finally feeling safe.”
