The wonderful anthropologist Margaret Mead said “…never ever doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is all that ever has.”

How we care for and help our ageing parents, friends and loved ones is under pressure and needs to change. While there are many dedicated, committed and selfless people working to provide in home care, the system in which they work has lost focus on the individual needing help and the importance of their family. Home Care has become all about tasks, hours and packages. We think there are many people that share these feelings and would like to help create the change that is needed. This is why we started Five Good Friends. This is why we would like you to consider being a Five Good Friends Helper. Register your interest
