TESTIMONIALS

You don't talk about gay things, you learn to size people up. But for the home help I would be very lonely. It would have been nice if someone else was out among the residents.
Rainbow Lives Project participant
Alternative Care Services matched me with my UNIQUECarer, and I'm so happy. She is a quick learner, patient and I'm so pleased!
Kath, Alternative Care Services client
It was very worrying trying to find a place for my partner to be in. I went to a couple of places. I just didn't feel comfortable. I didn't feel able to say, 'I'm looking for a place for my partner.'
Marie Curie Hiding Who I Am report participant
It was heartbreaking seeing people I know, who lived happy, comfortable and proud lives, having to go back into the closet to get dignified care and support in later life. That's when I came up with the idea of Alternative Care Services.
