Caring for the local elderly community
Cuckoo Carers started in 2014 with just 2 clients and 2 carers in the village of Marsden in Huddersfield. Through hard work and word of mouth there is now a team of experienced, fully trained and insured carers working with the Marsden elderly community.
Cuckoo’s ethos is kindness and empathy. We want to enable elderly people to continue to live in their own home and local community by tailoring the care package to address specific needs and concerns. Our approach is completely flexible and client led with advice from health professionals.
Cuckoo actively encourages and facilitates when possible, social inclusion by attending activities such as bingo, exercise class and local lunch groups to address the huge impact that loneliness has on mental well being.
Client Comments and Quotes
“Cuckoo Carers have been looking after my mum for 4 years, since she suffered a severe stroke. Without them it wouldn’t have been possible for her to stay in her own home. They are genuinely kind and caring and have formed a lovely rapport with my mum. They are all local girls and I highly recommend them”. Elizabeth Cunnington
