I've been unbelievably happy with the care that Triangle House have given Henry in his time with them. I know that he is not only well cared for but also well loved. I am confident when I'm not there he will be getting just as many cuddles as he would at home. I'm really pleased that everyone has taken the time to get to know him as an individual and this is apparent in the daily handovers and updates where the information is always detailed and relevant to him.
