Diana and Ignatius' story

Happily married for 66 years, Diana and Ignatius are able to live at home independently with the help they now receive from a home care package. They had an assessment after which they met with their home care package provider and were receiving help within a month.

They are delighted with their decision and the support they receive from their carer, Blanche, who helps them with a range of services including cleaning and transport to doctor’s appointments, trips to the library and other outings. Blanche is also a great moral support to them both.

Diana and Ignatius believe their lives would be very different and restricted if they didn’t receive this support.

“This support has changed our lives.”
