66-year-old Sandra Johnson, a SARH Independent Living customer, first turned to the Wellbeing team when severe arthritis made carrying out simple tasks around her home more difficult.
“They were marvellous when it came to helping me apply for several mobility aids,” she said.
Around a year ago, Sandra called on the support of the Wellbeing Service once again – this time to help her younger brother, Les, who moved into the same Independent Living Scheme after suffering a severe stroke.
Les added: “The Wellbeing Service has been a huge help in getting me settled here, it’s been a very difficult year but it has helped to ease many of our worries.”
