‘There was no façade, they’re real. They’re the kind of carers that are normal people.

‘I opened up more than I probably would have, and opening up helped me better with my emotions.’

‘They made me realise that other people worried about me.’

‘All of them tried their utmost to get everything done.’

‘I saw things better, in a different way, from how I used to.’

‘She was like a big sister - it wasn’t like a carer. It was like I knew I had her if I needed her.’

‘When I first moved there I was quite shy. I think one thing Anderida helped me with was my anxiety.’

‘Follow the rules and guidelines, you’ll get further.’
