Client name: Maureen Drinnan
“I’ve received care and support from Carrington for 3 years. I chose Carrington as for many years I have known of the wonderful care given by Carrington to the community, so when the time came for me to need the care and support, I applied to the Carrington care team to be one of their clients.
I receive different assistance services from Carrington’s care staff including:
- I am showered daily, 5 days a week
- My bed is made for me
- Should I require dressing or ointment to be applied – it’s never questioned and the job is done willing and efficiently.”
How has this assistance enabled you to stay at home?
“To know that I will be showered 5 days per week is a load lifted from my family, and of course me.”
What are Maureen’s thoughts about the care and services that you receive from Carrington?

Thank you for your support and care Carrington!”
