"You're not afraid because you've got somebody with you... I was frightened I was going to fall - now I've come here I've got companionship and I can get about and that's far improved my life."
"I was on tablets and depressed, but I'm not like that anymore because there's someone here to look after you isn't there? The care that we get is excellent."
"My mum's really happy since she came here and I know she's being well looked after, which makes life easier for me too."
"They're there for you everyday and I'd recommend it to anyone."
