Deborah's Story

  • Posted On: 9 May 2016

Deborah is a 70 year old vulnerable widow who lives alone in a rented bungalow in a remote village.  She is severely disabled as a result of a number of serious strokes and can do very little unaided although she has managed to regain her speech through therapy and self-tuition, and can use a computer with two fingers.  She is mobile only in her wheelchair, has a very restricted life, and a typical outing is being accompanied in her wheelchair to the local farm. She has no car. She has two grown-up children but they do not live nearby so can visit only rarely.  Her mental faculties are intact and she keeps alert by reading and listening to classical music.
