An urgent request
During the frantic Christmas period we received an urgent request from Janice, one of our Balanced Lives participants in Swansea. She was concerned about a 99 year old lady called Betty who was going to be alone over Christmas. Betty has family in London and the US, but they were all due to be abroad for the holiday period, so Betty was faced with spending Christmas alone, cooking for herself. It was a very worrying prospect for both Betty and Janice.
Friends and neighbours were away too, but Betty, who values her independence, was unable to cook properly for herself through disability. We worked around the clock to find somebody who could help us provide urgent assistance.
