How well is our care and support planned?

I would say that my response to Claire’s residence in Ruthven Towers is very positive. I have seen nothing but kindness, courtesy and a real effort to make her as comfortable as possible. When she was in the hospital she could not move one inch except in a wheelchair and the fact that she is now able to walk unaided speaks for itself.
