The house is fitted throughout with smoke detectors, telephone and television aerial points. There is also CCTV placed in all the communal and outside areas.
“We are very fortunate to have CTS caring for our Son. As a family we were unable to support him at home and were worried about how he would be cared for. We cannot speak highly enough of CTS; their management, their staff and the whole ethos of caring for someone with complex support needs is remarkable.
He is treated with respect, dignity and cared for as if he were a member of their own family. This is something we are truly grateful for. We are kept fully involved with all aspects of his care, and when times are difficult for us, they are there to support us too”.
