Betty's Story

Betty (not pictured), a lady in a wheelchair, did not communicate with others in the Balanced Lives group for a number of weeks. Eventually through one-to-one interaction she began to participate more in the programme. As a ‘step down’ referral from Social Services our sessional worker found that she was still in a local resource centre some nine months after an operation and just wanted to go back to her own flat. The programme connected with her and assisted her to do just that.
