Testimonials

We pride ourselves on always exceeding expectations

We recently turned to Cavendish nursing to help in the immediate post-operative period, for a family member. From booking onwards, the team were most helpful, keen to ensure we would have exactly what was needed. As it turned out, this was less than anticipated. The nurse who attended was flexible and willing, adapting her stay to ensure we didn’t have excess cover. She was professional, attentive and sensitive too, with other family members. We have turned to Cavendish nursing in the past and would certainly recommend them to others in need of skilled and sensitive professional care.

Daughter of patient, London

The team were highly professional and constantly attentive I cannot praise them enough - their attention to details very welcome. They were above all highly committed and liaised with me and my sister who lived abroad on a constant basis. My late mother was suffering from Dementia and they assisted her to maintain her dignity in what must have been very trying circumstances. Her doctors commented that her life span was extended because of the staff.

I have used the services of Mairead Liston and her handpicked nurses and carers for many years, for my patients. She has always been available for advice, even when on holiday!. Her ability to assess a situation and get a team up and running is efficient and always reliable. She has huge technical expertise to resource supplementary equipment. She is brilliant at making sure that the personalities of her staff meet the patient's needs, as well as their technical efficiency, which is so important in long term care and in situations of high emotional gravity. Even in the most complex situations, I have never heard her complain about the amount of work needed. It is a pleasure to work with Mairead, and in over ten years I have never had reason to fault her.

Dear Mrs Liston, I am very happy to confirm my satisfaction with the service provided by your professional homecare service. At very short notice you were able to put together a team of qualified nurses who provided 24 hour care for my husband. I particularly appreciated the calm and efficient manner in which you did this, thus removing a great strain from my shoulders and enabling me to recover my own strength.
The nurses were both delightful and highly competent. They were invariably punctual, courteous and very well trained. They treated my husband with firmness but at the same time preserving his dignity and individuality. I cannot speak highly enough of your organisation and will always be grateful to you for guiding me and my husband through a very difficult period.

Mrs BA, London

Dear Cavendish, Thank you for your kind thoughts. Looking after an elderly relative is never easy for a family, particularly when they are at a distance, but the excellent care and attention given by Cavendish dispelled the worry knowing that our relative was in good hands. Kind regards, Joyce

Niece, Mary Scott, Wimbledon

I would like to thank Cavendish for the brilliant job they did for us, I explained the complex needs that my daughter has and they paired us up with the wonderful Anne Marie Harris, she was an absolute joy. I found all the staff very helpful and understanding. Our daughter has very difficult needs but Anne Marie was ready and willing to do whatever was needed, she is a very caring person and absolutely right for us. Mairead who paired us with Anne Marie was very professional and a really great person to talk to. We found that whoever we spoke to were very friendly and great at their jobs. We were worried about finding someone that could fill in with us that would understand all the problems. We will never worry again, we have said that if we need cover for one of our carers again we know where will go, and we have told other people as well. So thank you Cavendish.

Mr & Mrs Gilchrist, London

Dear Mrs Liston, It was nice and emotional to introduce you to our newborn that we both desired so much and whose life he definitely owes to you as well! You have certainly known him from the early days. It was so sweet of you not only to take the time to come and visit us but also to bring those beautiful presents for both my sons. It is such a blessing to have met you and I look forward to staying in close contact.

Mrs OR, IVF patient, London

Dear Mairead, I don’t think that I will ever be able to find the words to express my deep gratitude to you for all that you have done for me and continue to do. You are, quite literally, my lifesaver. When I was in London, I know that it was only your skill and determination that ensured I survived intact. You are a true friend and an incredible, amazing, strong, dedicated woman. A real role model for anyone to follow, you inspire me and others.

Mrs M, London/Warrington

I am most grateful to the support of Mrs Liston and Cavendish in caring for my mother during her final months of life. Cavendish was flexible, responsive to my Mother's rapid changes in need, and very sensitive in the way in which they worked with members of my family during a distressing time. They helped us to be able to meet my Mother's wish, to stay within her own home to the very end.

Sir Paul Ennals, CBE, London

Dear Mairead, I would like to place on record my appreciation for all the work you have put in, and your staff, for this elderly patient who returns to America this morning. Your attention to her welfare has been quite outstanding and the long attention from the girls equally so. I propose carrying on working for some while yet and look forward to when we can be in touch over another case. With best wishes.

Dr T, London

Dear Mrs Liston, Thank you so much for all your help and support over the last year. It has been a long journey, and your advice and support has helped me so much. We will definitely keep in touch throughout the pregnancy and hopefully once the babies are born! Thanks again.

Mr and Mrs M, IVF patient, London

My family do not live locally and although I am a fairly independent person, I know that I could not have managed without the level of care and professionalism that I experienced from yourselves and I know that, should I require further support, it will be there.

Mrs JF, London

Mrs Liston, thank you very much for all your help and support. Much appreciated – keep in touch.

Mrs H, IVF patient, Hampstead

I am writing regarding the great care you took of my mother in her last months. Your nurses were so kind and did their best to make her comfortable and were always respectful towards her.

Daughter, Mrs M, W1

Josie is lovely and I think she’s helping him recover nice and slowly and giving me some much-needed time off.

Wife, Mr L, London

I was very happy with the care received from your staff when they took care of me.

Lady …, W1

May I say how absolutely brilliant your staff have been. Thank you so much.
