My sister lives in Maryborough and suffers from dementia. My husband and I are 80 years old and find it increasingly difficult to travel from Melbourne to Maryborough to help her attend appointments with dentist, hairdresser, etc. Ruth has been a godsend. She has quickly established a rapport with my sister and taken a load off our minds. She is a positive proactive person who keeps in contact with us about any concerns she may have. Long may she continue with this service.
I had to stop driving as I had vision problems. Ruth gave me the confidence to venture out of my home and into the community. With my disabilities I have now found the courage to live a full life and make new friends thanks to Ruth driving me to places and encouraging me to get out there. I am looking forward to the challenges of the new year and more experiences.

To be noted:
Thank you for the very positive testimonials both written and verbal over the past few months from customers, their families or my peers out in the community. The feedback received is very much appreciated and proof I was right to start this business.
My belief is to support every customer the same way I would like myself or an aged, frail or disabled family member to be supported.
A number of years ago I had a manager by the name of
Sharon D who told me
"the best support provided to clients is when you work your way out of the support job your currently doing!"
I still work according to her quote and often relay it to my customers or say a silent thank you for the wise words she instilled in me.
In September 2018, I was able to go on a ten-day holiday to Broken Hill NSW. This was thanks to Ruth and if it hadn’t been for her, I never would have gone.
As an artist, Broken Hill was a place I wanted to go but never got a chance. I gained a lot of history and knowledge of the area from Ruth as we travelled around. I have many wonderful memories now that I have actually seen the landscapes that I had only previously seen in paintings.
I wish Ruth all the best and look forward to engaging her new business to accompany me on a holiday in the near future.
Thanks Ruth, I had a fantastic time!
To be noted:
Judy W and I are in the process of planning a trip later in 2020 to go back to Broken Hill including a few days this time to go opal fossicking at White Hills.
I live in Ballarat and am the mother of a disabled adult who lives in high care in another part of the state. Although I own my own car and am able to drive, I lack confidence outside my own area. I utilised the opportunity for Ruth to drive me to visit my daughter when Ruth was doing research for her new business venture.
I found it to be less stressful, more comfortable and very convenient.
This business venture Ruth has would benefit many people like myself and I wish her and the business all the best. I look forward to doing business with Ruth in the not to distant future.
Being able to offer peace of mind and a positive outcome is what this business is about.
