The staff of Real Life dealt with my Mother's retrospective claim for Continuing Healthcare in a most efficient and empathetic manner. They handled both my Mother's medical and personal issues, as well as my input, most sensitively with the understanding that retrospective analysis and information can be most painful to families. I highly recommend the Real Life team to anyone.
I am extremely grateful for the time, effort and tenacity put in by Real Life in helping me recover a good portion of the Care Home fees. I would never have managed all this work on my own- without your help I wouldn't have known where to begin. It would have been a full time job which I wouldn't have had time to fit in myself.
I have found the Real Life team to be efficient, caring and understanding and always willing to put in the extra effort to achieve the best possible outcome. I do not begrudge one penny of their fee. Without the fantastic support of Real Life throughout the entire process, it would never have been possible to pursue our claim to a successful conclusion.
Without help from Valerie and her team, I doubt very much that my claim for restitution of Care Home fees would have succeeded. She was particularly valuable at panel meeting which eventually achieved 100% success.
Once we had decided to use you and had presented all the documents you required it was effortless on our part. We had no 'face to face' contact which is what I like about your revised procedure. We were naturally delighted with the outcome and I also found all the telephone conversations useful and informative. Very pleased I used you.
When looking for a care home on the internet I saw your company, I filled in a short questionnaire, received a phone call the following day and an appointment was made. When I finished the meeting with Valerie I felt that I would finally get the care for dad he deserved. Unfortunately I had lost dad by the time we won but the care I received from the Real Life staff was fantastic.
Real Life provided a professional service - with good advice and attention to detail on every aspect of my Mother's medical needs which proved a case for funding that should have been provided. A first class company to have dealing with my Mother's case , I am delighted with the results.
