From time to time our customers leave us reviews from the work we have done. Below are a few of our most recent ones.

" Andrea Williams has been helping me since my stroke nine months ago.She has made an enormous difference to both my confidence and recovery.With her skill and encouragement she has helped me learn to strengthen my body, to stand and take a few tentative steps. I have learnt exercises for my hand and arm, and she has endless patience, combined with firmness to help me teach my body to regain lost function.

In addition she has liaised on my behalf with the various medical authorities, such as wheelchair services to make sure that I have been able to obtain the equipment needed, and has also advised my carers on specific handling methods to enable me to be more comfortable when in bed.

I am hoping that with her continued help and encouragement I will continue to make the progress that will enable me to live a more independent life. "

"I started seeing Andrea four months after a stroke left me immobile on my left hand side. I chose her services because of her neurological background and experience which has proved invaluable. My progress since seeing Andrea is measurable and I see improvement each week. She has given me back my confidence and the belief that I can continue moving forward. I look forward to each session we have. Andrea is professional as well as being fun to work with."

John Wood, Telford, Shropshire

"Following our fathers stroke, we were very grateful during a stressful time to have had Andrea's expertise and practical guidance. It is evident to us as a family that much of the physical improvement and confidence gained by our father in the early weeks following hospital discharge, can be attributed to Andrea's excellent input. We found her to be professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and personable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andrea's services to anyone in a similar position."

Sarah Davies, Wellington, Shropshire

"Having spent some time in hospital following a fall, I came to live in a nursing home as I was rather frail and unable to walk. I met Andrea, my physio which was one of the best days of my life. She was very patient with me and slowly I was able to use a stand aid. She gave me lots of exercises and eventually I was able to walk with a frame, and now two sticks!"

Joyce Waters, Newport, Shropshire

"Andrea Williams has worked with the residents in our Care Home for over 5 years. She is always professional in her approach. Andrea has worked with some residents to the point where they have regained independent mobility, which has obviously enriched their lives considerably. Our residents look forward to their physio sessions and if Andrea is away, she will leave exercise instructions to help maintain progress.

Andrea is a joy to work with and has amazing results with the physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents."

Julie Stevenson, Care Home Manager, Coverage Care

"Alex had a severe stroke approximately 7 years ago. This left her with considerable physical disability. We count ourselves as extremely fortunate in finding Andrea. From the outset, she was extremely realistic about what could be achieved . Within weeks we realised what a treasure Andrea was, after Alex was not only able to sit upright, but to stand and transfer. She is now able to walk several metres with help and has gained considerable confidence, self esteem and huge improvement in her quality of life. We make no exaggeration when we say we consider this to be a small miracle.We believe Andrea is a physiotherapist in a million."

Carmen McCunnin, Wellington , Shropshire

"Over the last three years I have on occasions worked with Andrea Williams (Physiotherapist) in a professional capacity. Andrea always shows kindness and caring to her clients as well as consideration to their needs; she always shows her professionalism in everything she does.

It is a pleasure to be able to work alongside Andrea, carrying out assessments to try and provide her clients with the equipment they require to manage their daily living.

I would always recommend her to clients that needed her services."

Mark Astley, Specialist Manager and Seating Consultant – Ableworld UK Limited.

"Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service has worked closely with Andrea to develop and deliver moving and handling training and support for family carers and to provide bespoke packages to individual carers vulnerable to injury or carer breakdown. Andrea has extensive experience and knowledge of issues and challenges facing family carers and her expertise as a moving and handling trainer and physiotherapist is second to none. We have had consistently good feedback from carers about the training and support they have received and the positive difference it has made. Andrea is a delight to work with; flexible, helpful and utterly reliable. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to others and hope we will continue to benefit from her professionalism and expert knowledge as our services continue to develop."

Celia MacIntyre - Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service

"I have more confidence in handling my mother by myself and with other carers, knowing that there is less likelihood of hurting her or myself

My husband can now get in and out of the chair without help and getting in and out of bed is much easier. All helps me as his carer and helps him to be more independent

I know how to move my wife effectively and safely. It has reduced the physical and mental stress on me

Less risk, less worry, less stress"

Family Carers

"From day one, Andrea was fully committed and has taken the "big picture" approach in her therapy which has meant looking at all associated areas and needs that at first glance might not have been visible. A thorough diagnosis was followed by action steps. She has proactively introduced new techniques and equipment as required and very importantly Andrea is very aware of the mental impact of physical disability and is a great motivator and gives great encouragement and support on top of the physio activities. This gives support not just to the patient but also to the whole family.

Hence, we can and do highly recommend Andrea!"
