Adeline undoubtedly saved my mother's life when she acted as whistleblower and brought to light not just the woefully inadequate care my mother was receiving personally at the
Care Home she lived in then.
Adeline's actions also exposed other appalling ways that the "home" was failing so many of its residents. Adeline was employed by
the home as a carer and from the moment she met and welcomed my mother, it was clear that she had outstanding attributes in her vocation.
She is warm, compassionate,
kind and very wise with an extraordinary gift for empathy. I've never known anyone give their time or their energy so unstintingly to ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of people in her care. It takes a lot of courage to act as whistleblower when
your friendships and even your livelihood may be at stake but Adeline's passion is good care for all and she acts accordingly.
I would trust her implicitly to offer
gentle, loving, sympathetic care to any in need and recommend her wholeheartedly. The elderly and vulnerable have found a wonderful, dedicated champion in Adeline and I believe she will go from strength to strength as a spokesperson for those who need a voice.
They certainly couldn't find a louder or clearer one.
