Client Comments

"I needed to move from Montreal to Adelaide, South Australia. Lesley prepared me covering all aspects: packing, banking, business transactions, all the ‘red tape’ connected to the move - including renewal of Australian passport. A remarkable feat. Disciplined, honest, energetic; a wonderful ‘find’. This was a traumatic period in my life and Lesley gave me support and lifted the pressure, enabling me to complete arrangements stress free."
Christine Brown, Adelaide, S. Australia

"Thank you, Worn Doorstep.
For ten years, and counting, I have called on you to take to me to appointments (medical and social), to do my shopping (grocery and other) to help me out in many ways, as needed. Always great service, prompt, pleasant, reliable, secure. Every outing a happy adventure. As the years pile on, who’s counting? I look forward to many more such adventures, in home and out, with Worn Doorstep to steady my step and share the fun.
Thank you, Lesley Forrester."
Sheila Arthur, NDG

"My sisters and I love The Worn Doorstep, and so do my parents. We live out of town and so Lesley takes care of my parents where we can't. She is always punctual for appointments, on top of anything that needs to be worried about, and takes care of them well at a personal level. And then my sisters and I get a detailed report at the end of the day so that we feel well informed and confident that everything has been well taken care of. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
Diana, Ottawa
