“Per-care has offered my family and invaluable service over the past 2 weeks. Charlotte and her staff are attentive, professional and go above and beyond. We felt very comfortable having them in our home and they offered us the reassurance and peace of mind that we sought in our time of need. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for in home nursing care.”

“Dear Charlotte, As you know, my mother Joan Murton is now in the Care Centre at The Lodge and we have had to say good-bye to her wonderful carers.
I wanted to let you know how grateful I am to you and your staff. Shaylet, Sandra, Chippo and Marjorie are all a credit to your company and their profession. I saw them look after my mother with such kindness and patience. It was a pleasure meeting them all. They are special ladies doing a very difficult job and I will remember them all with gratitude.”

“We were referred to Charlotte of Meanca (Pty) Ltd and her team of nurses when a family member broke her back in two places and both sacral wings, a very serious injury for an 85 year old lady. We urgently needed a knowledgeable and qualified team of people in order to assist us in taking care of her. We were referred to Charlotte and her nurses by a close friend of ours, who can only speak extremely highly of them. Charlotte assured me that they would start her care immediately from her being discharged from hospital and would accompany us to her home from the hospital.
They did not disappoint from the very moment that we met. Charlotte, her business partner, Richard and Charlotte’s wonderful team of nurses became an integral part of our mother’s life. Nothing was too much! We cannot speak highly enough of the totality of care that we received from all of the team. The quality of care was exceptional as well as the tender care that our mother received which made her feel completely loved and special. I remember so clearly arriving on a few occasions unannounced at my mother’s home and she was about to have her breakfast. It was so well presented and her coffee had a heart shape on top. I was so touched at how personal and thoughtful her nurses were; selfless, warm individuals who always did as much as possible for their patient who they truly treated with dignity. They would sit and talk to her and obliged her with whatever she requested. Charlotte told me from the onset that she and her staff ‘bring the hospital home’. They proved this and recorded everything possible, from administering medication, to blood pressure, eating ability, assistance with personal ablution and more. We always felt that we could contact Charlotte at any time as she told us that anytime is a good time. This personal help and attitude is very hard to find. When we did need to contact her she was always so caring, gentle and professional with clear, sensible advice.
At times like this family members are not always objective, as we can be emotionally attached. Charlotte always was in permanent contact with her nurses and advised them and ourselves accordingly. The quality, love, professionalism and genuine care of this company are wonderful. We were so fortunate that when we suddenly needed this very kind of service we found it through a referral. We could not have wished for more. Our mother was reticent to let the nurses move on from her care as she was so ‘spoilt’ and her life was made comfortable. The team came to assist her in her daily living and in helping her recover from her injuries and did so very well indeed. We cannot thank Charlotte and her team at MEANCA enough for what they have done for her.”
