Lasting legacy

7 November 2017

Mark in a standing wheelchairWhen 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.’ — Mark, St Teresa's resident

One of the greatest benefits of the standing wheelchair is that it allows residents to make eye contact with people they’re speaking to.
