We are privileged to share in the lives of our clients.
Here’s what some of them have to say:
When our mother, Margot, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease three years ago, we realised that we needed extra care for her. Our search led us to Dewcare. Their team of carers lived up to their slogan ‘”We’re here when you can’t be” with grace and excellence. Domma, Lidia, Rae and Liza not only brightened up our mother’s days, but they always treated her with compassion and respect – keeping her dignity intact and making her feel like the intelligent woman she was. They sent us messages and even videos of how she was doing, letting us know if she needed anything or if they were in any way concerned. The best testimony for their care of her was to see her face light up when they entered the room and greeted her as an old and beloved friend.
We heartily recommend Dewcare and cannot thank them enough.
The ladies of Dewcare have served my wife and I as a beacon of support in times when we needed reliable, compassionate and timeous support. For me to isolate any particular individual at Dewcare would be unfair to the entire team who work together tirelessly, harmoniously and efficiently to fulfil their role as a unique, personalised Caring Service that they offer to the community of Hermanus.
Our first experience with Dewcare was when I needed to be transported to and from the life-giving medical treatment that required that I was at the facility by 5am three times a week, every week. Dewcare were there for me each and every morning three times a week, on time, every time and to return me home and still do so now that I have been accommodated on a later, more relaxed time schedule. They also saw to it that my wife was conveyed to and from the Spescare Hospital when she required eye surgery to replace her lenses dimmed by cataracts. There have been other occasions when I have needed to be taken to and from Somerset West for urgent medical treatment and Dewcare have been there to support me all the way.
I cannot over stress the fact that my wife and I are thoroughly at ease with the knowledge that Dewcare will be there promptly to offer us their exceptional service, whether it be to transport us to Medical Practitioners, hospitals or even a trip to the new Whale Coast Mall, or to provide us with a well-trained and reliable Carer day and night, we know we will be in good caring hands.
I’ve used Dewcare for the past 18 months for the assistance of the care of my 79 year old Mother who is in a wheelchair.
From moving her from room to room, lunch dates, shopping trips, airports trips etc etc,I can only commend Dewcare.
Always punctual, always reliable, always full of love, support and care for the whole family. Their experience and determination shines and it is an absolute pleasure to have Dewcare as an instant “lean on” in times of need.
You can use me as a reference anytime, happy to spread the word of your excellent work.
Much appreciated AS ALWAYS.
Mandie en Team.
I reside in Pretoria, while my father (86) and mother (84) lives in Hermanus. We communicate via telephone, hence it is hard to give physical and emotional support on a daily basis, as we only see each other 3 times a year. It was heartbreaking that holding my parents hand, giving them a hug, taking a bouquet of flowers or just having a coffee by the seaside, was impossible to do.
Until we met Dew Care and started making use of their services. All this is now just a phone call away, and the sadness replaced with joy! Thank you Mandie and Rene, you are my heroes!
My parents are happy because they are treated with love, care and patience. Any time of the day (or evening) you are always just a phone call away, no task is too big or too small. We are thankful for the service you provide, from helping my mother to get ready for the day to securing the house for their safety. We can see the passion that you have for working with the elderly, our parents LOVE you!

We have made use of Dew Care since August 2015, they have been like Angels that were sent to us. Since then they have cared for our parents, Pieter (88 years old) and Hepsie (80 years old) Crous daily. Originally we decided on using a Packet service, but a change in circumstances has led to us deciding to use Dew Care’s services every day. The personnel in Dew Care’s employ are professional, reliable and caring and we can wholeheartedly recommend them. Dew Care regularly gives us feedback and reports on how our parents are doing. It is comforting to that someone visits our parents in the morning and evening to make sure they are cared for. Through the level of care, love and attention that Dew Care gives the elderly, we can see that it’s not just a job, but a true calling for all the personnel.
We thank Dew Care and wish them all the best.
