‘Very rewarding and fulfilling work. I have seen positive improvements with the ladies I support.’
“My bipolar is stable because I know who will be supporting me. Without ategi my disabilities got worse”.
‘I love my Shared Lives Carers, they cook me good food and help me fight my battles.’
“If I was telling others about ategi I’d say you get top notch care and you get your package running as you want it”.
“I’ve been a Shared Lives Carer for nearly 18 years. ategi have supported me through some difficult times. They really understand what being a Shared Lives Carer is all about”.
