 Carers from Tailor Maid Home Care

My parents were one of Tailor Maid's first clients and they have been cared for impeccably since the very start. I am living overseas and am content to know that they are being looked after by people who are genuinely interested in their welfare and will always do their best for them. Extremely trustworthy, I can't recommend them highly enough!
