Find out how we helped Jean:
Jean White lives in Brighouse. After a spell in hospital our Home from Hospital team visited her to help with shopping, household admin, sorting home adaptations and general reassurance, as Jean had lost much of her confidence.
A while later, Jean was feeling trapped inside her house as her driveway is very steep and she didn’t feel able to tackle it un-aided.
Her family is very supportive but they do not live locally so they decided to contact the Home from Hospital team who had been so helpful in the first place, to see if they could help out again.
They referred her to our Mobility Dept, who installed a handrail up the side of Jean’s drive.
‘Thanks to Age UK, now I can get out and remind myself that there is still a world outside my front door!’ said Jean
