What Our Clients Say

I appreciate all the kindness, efficiency and goodwill that is the hallmark of your organisation. Thank you Mrs S
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for their total dedication in assisting my husband in every way – which in turn gave me piece of mind. Mrs. M
I wish to convey our appreciation of your team of carers who care for us in our home in Caloundra. They gave us empathy, quality care and assistance constantly to both my husband and self. Paul – you are to be commended on your team; they are marvellous. Mr. & Mrs. W
To M and all the girls who helped look after Mum, I would like to say a very big thank you for the last 8 years, but most especially the last few weeks. It was very much appreciated. Ms. T
I appreciate all you do for me and the way you do it. It feels like friends visiting, not just workers. Ms. I
Many thanks for your service. We found the break to be very beneficial (although too short!). The attention of your staff, which went beyond the call of duty, is much appreciated and we will not hesitate to call on Bromilow again. Mr. W
Bromilow Home Support Services has provided my mother with a team of excellent, dedicated carers who understood the frailty of a fiercely independent old lady losing her grip on reality. Thank you. Mrs. S
To management and staff at Bromilow: more especially the ones that came personally and gave their care and attention. Words will never express my heartfelt thanks for all this. Each of you will forever have a special place in my heart. Mr. T
My most sincere gratitude for your generous heartedness towards me. Assistance during this vulnerable time when I felt very alone in my incapacitation has been invaluable to me. Mrs. R
As you know our mother passed away last month. A special thanks to the two Michelles who helped her out. They were both a credit to your company. Thanking you. Mr. B
Your carer AM is wonderful with my husband, in the way she interacts with him and the meaningful activities she engages him in. Mrs. N
I want to compliment CG – she went the extra mile on the weekend for me. She helped me get ready for church and she fussed over me and made me feel special. Mr. T
I want to thank you for sending L to assist us - she is absolutely amazing. She is a lovely woman who is very efficient. She just comes into our home and gets on with her work. She is so delightful and we are very happy with her. Mr. & Mrs. R
I must commend Kerry to you. She was here today and did a wonderful job of looking after dad, making some delicious chicken curry, a tasty coffee cake, and some rissoles! She is very competent, especially when it comes to cooking! Mum’s very glad we have her. Mrs. S
All your ‘girls’ are lovely. But I do want to commend H’s congeniality and helpfulness. She has exhibited initiative and resourcefulness within her natural caring manner, consistently and with grace. Mrs. R
To all the wonderful Bromilow staff – we would like to thank you for all your input into Dad’s and our lives over the last few months. Thank you for your support and encouragement. Although those months were often difficult, your girls coming in was a highlight for Dad and brought him joy at often depressing moments for him. And we are so grateful for the breaks we were able to take and the listening ears that you offered. Ms. D & Ms. B
We wish to thank you for the wonderful service we are getting at this time. We really appreciate it and find Jackie to be lovely and kind and a hard worker who is doing a great job. Mr. & Mrs. W
We want to thank you, your staff and all the friendly, helpful and efficient ladies who look after us. We look forward each day to their arrival when they brighten up our day. Mr. & Mrs. H

Thank you all for the wonderful service you provide. I would certainly recommend you to anyone needing support. Mrs. S
