Couldn’t ask for a better mentor and team


The carers make daily notes and observations to which I have secure online access. These provide complete peace of mind, noting any health or behavioural concerns, even their mood on visits so I can gauge how both parents are both physically and mentally, which is invaluable.”

Karen, Client’s Daughter

Since Bridgewater took over my parents’ care, I was delighted to find both parents happy and relaxed, smiling and enjoying life for the first time in years.”

Client’s Daughter

I absolutely love my job and work with some lovely carers and our clients are amazing. A huge thank you for everyone for making me feel so welcome and helping me along the way.

Lynee, Carer

There are no words enough to describe the love and kindness that was given to my husband during his illness. We will be ever grateful to you and your team. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Margaret, Client’s Wife

I have found Bridgewater Home Care extremely good in caring for my Mother-in-law.  She thoroughly enjoyed all the visits she had and looked forward to them and was very instrumental in helping with the well-being of my Mother-in-law.  The girls that attended to her were very caring and friendly.  I would certainly recommend Bridgewater Home Care to anyone, excellent service.

Patricia, Client’s Daughter-in-Law

I would just like to thank you. Your carers are absolutely brilliant. They have been looking after my wife for two years now, nothing is too much trouble.  I go to work knowing my wife is in the best hands, they are more like friends than carers.  I just can’t thank you enough.

Phil, Client’s Husband
