Great service. It don't matter who was here, they've all been very good.

It's been good for me because I've come to know them - I'm not very good with strangers.

I couldn't say much at all at the start, I've learned a lot. I didn't think I'd be able to speak really and I didn't think I'd walk on my own.

Instead of four carers I've got two and really they only see to my tablets.

Still got to carry on and get better.
