“We have found that all the staff involved with Karen have been totally reliable and professional and they have gently encouraged her to try new things and make more decisions for herself. We have the utmost confidence in the whole team and consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to plan Karen’s support with such a caring and supportive organisation.”
