What our clients say

Perhaps a less known service offered is that of an English speaking heath professional that will help and guide you through Hospital appointments. Although I have a basic level of Portuguese, the reassurance of having someone with me for a recent appointment at Faro hospital was immense. Not only could they translate when needed but they were also there to meet me, show me where to go and basically hold my hand through the whole registration process of my appointment. This affordable service was not only a great help but gave me complete peace of mind during a very stressful time. Can’t rate this highly enough. Thank you


Algarve Health and Social Care has been a God Send!

Our 14-year old daughter has Down’s and is also autistic, with severe learning difficulties. In other words, she can be a real handful!

She loves the beach and the sea, so we come to Portugal to give her what she enjoys, but it’s not always a holiday for us.

When we met with Jo and Peter to discuss possible respite for a few hours a day, we knew immediately that we would be placing Beth in safe hands. They asked the right questions, and also demanded (in the nicest possible way!) a more in-depth analysis to ensure that they would be providing the best service possible.

Since utilising the services of Algarve Health and Social Care we have found that each member of their team has more than enough experience to deal with someone like our daughter. In addition, they are all lovely –  and something else that really helps? They are great with time-keeping!

Mia, Janet, Helen and Anita all have our trust and appreciation, and make our holidays in Portugal that much easier.

Thank you Algarve Health and Social Care.
