After his parents passed away, a move to specialist accommodation could have been a difficult experience for Martin without the help of the SARH You First Wellbeing Service.
Now the 57 year old, who lives with learning difficulties, is happily settled in and the wellbeing service still plays a huge role in his life. Christine Sherwood, SARH Wellbeing Co-ordinator, explained how they started by assisting Martin with packing and now continue to provide 15-hours-a week support.
In addition to liaising with other support services, Christine calls in every day to take Martin to medical appointments and to ensure he takes his medication, ensuring he can safely retain his independence. They also take walks together and Martin has joined the gym, losing 5 stone and feeling fitter as a result.
Martin added "Christine’s visits are one of the best parts of the day and I don’t know what I would do without her."
