"My bones are not good. I have to be very careful of walking. From my hips right down to the bottom of my toes I cannot do anything too hard with them. Before I had this bone problem I never suffered, I used to get out and about, go and do my shopping and get back and do every little thing. During the lockdown because I couldn’t move around, I just stayed put. I don’t go anywhere. I felt lonely but I have a radio and to be frank...I don’t really let myself go over it or worry.
I will tell my friends in church.
But Nevina is so blessed. She helped with the dial-a-ride and the taxi card. Now if I want to go to Asda I call the dial-a-ride and the dial-a-ride takes me to Asda and brings me back. This way I can move about and I thank Nevina for helping me to get there. Elders Voice are good. They want to get to know the person they are going to help. I will tell my friends in church about Elders Voice.
I'm looking forward to...if I could move around better. Get about, help myself in what way I can." - Ruby, aged 77, Floating Support client
Getting out and about may not change the world, but it might mean the world to someone.
