When our supporter Joseph died, he left a lasting legacy at our St Teresa’s care home.
Thanks to his gift, the service was able to buy a standing wheelchair which has given residents greater mobility and independence.
‘Being able to use a standing wheelchair has changed my life.
‘If I get to stand up for an hour a day it really lifts my spirits and it has definitely improved my overall health.’
One of the greatest benefits of the standing wheelchair is that it allows residents to make eye contact with people they’re speaking to.
