Carers receive praise from top author Jilly Cooper

Corinium Care are thrilled to have received an acknowledgement of thanks in Jilly Cooper’s latest novel Mount!

Corinium Care, live-in carers

She writes:

“ I am in turn colossally indebted to the many marvellous carers who lived in and looked after my husband Leo in his last years, treated us both with such kindness and cheerfully endured the long hours. A large majority were supplied by wonderful local agency Corinium Care, managed by Clare Janik. Many came from Zimbabwe or South Africa and provided me with crucial detail, inspiration, touching copy for my story and became huge friends.”

Jilly makes a point of thanking the carers by name that had supported her and her husband Leo, who suffered from Parkinson’s disease. Many became close friends to the couple and provided inspiration for the novel’s Zimbabwean character Gala, a widow who moves to Penscombe to care for Rupert’s father.

Clare Janik, MD, comments “We are so honoured to have received Jilly’s commendation. The dedication, care and support of our staff is second to none and we are enormously proud of them all”
