“Thank you to everyone at CAMEO for their endless support, positive outlook and cheery smiles. Mum really enjoys it and often comes out saying “they are all such fun!”. Would recommend to anyone, a truly wonderful place.
“My husband attends CAMEO and he tells me he thoroughly enjoys attending and loves the lunches. He has made friends and really likes the location and all the staff and thinks they are all very kind and so helpful.
“Dad attends CAMEO three times a week and enjoys his time there. This allows my mum some free time for herself while he is there. Dad finds everyone very kind, caring and helpful.
“Abbas has been attending the CAMEO day centre for over 1 year now. It has become part of his weekly routine. He looks forward to attending and has a good banter with all the support team. The social side keeps him engaged and provides a topic of conversation for him at home and with his family.
“CAMEO gives me a much needed break from the responsibility of caring for my husband and enables me to have time to do the things that I enjoy. The team make my husband feel he is a much needed helper which he loves as he is naturally very helpful. All the people at CAMEO are lovely and very kind to the clients.
“CAMEO supports Daphne by getting her out of her home and stimulates her brain three times a week, which we feel is what she needs and what she loves to do and it makes her happy. Cheryl and her team are lovely and look after Daphne very well.
“Most days it is just the two of us so it is good for my sister to get some stimulation and make some other friends, and it gives me the best part of the days to myself. I cannot praise the CAMEO team enough. They are always cheerful and welcoming and do all they can to make it a happy place for my sister and all the clients.
“My husband has Vascular Dementia. He thoroughly enjoys going to CAMEO which helps with social interaction. Also it gives me respite which definitely helps as at home he is very aggressive with me. The team are excellent and very approachable. Cheryl not only supports her team but I find she supports me too and is only too happy to listen to the problems I experience. If needed I can phone her any time.
“My husband, really enjoys all the activities he does with CAMEO. It has certainly helped him to communicate with other people. It has helped me too because during lockdown he had stopped communicating with me. Thank you so much CAMEO team, you have helped me a lot. I know I can phone if I have a problem.
“CAMEO has my mum twice a week where they allow her to feel like a volunteer rather than a client. They make her feel very welcome, always kind and caring and involve her in duties and activities that she would like to carry out/participate in. Mum loves all of the staff and team will carry out any additional needs she may require and assist me with any issues or concerns I may have.
“I have been taking my wife Cherry to the CAMEO day sessions for several years. Cherry not only enjoys her day with her friends and carers but also gets help with living with Alzheimers. She always comes home with more sparkle and looks forward to joining the day centre again. CAMEO also helps by giving me time to meet up with friends and recharge my strength to carry on. The carers are great and always look after Cherry for me. Well done CAMEO and thanks for your help.
“CAMEO provides my dad with company, a hot meal and activities during the week days. If he didn’t attend, he would be bored and likely to wander. It keeps him safe and happy. The team at CAMEO are all amazing. They treat dad with dignity and he is always happy as a result of his time there. As a carer, the team provide me with valuable support. We would be lost with them, as we were during lockdown.
