In her 70’s, Nancy lives alone and is registered blind. Following a stroke she has physical weakness down one side and is also in pain due to severe arthritis. She is on benefits and used all her savings to move to a new flat that would better met her needs as a full time powered wheelchair user. Sadly, she has had to sleep in her wheelchair for more than five months because she can’t afford to buy a bed.
Nancy’s Rehab and Mobility Officer contacted us to explain the situation at home and to ask for our help.
We made a grant of £474 which was used towards the purchase of a new adjustable bed. Nancy can finally get a comfortable night’s sleep in her new home.
