J is bi-polar and has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and manic depression. She is a hoarder and is working with her social worker and occupational therapist to bring this under control. She needs a fridge freezer but her spare money is going on a removal company to help with the clearance.
S is in her 70's, she lives alone and tries to remain independent. She has issues with mobility and is partially sighted. In May her cooker broke, but due to the lockdown she didn't tell anyone as she was isolating and she has just been managing by eating cold food, that her neighbour shopped for. She doesn't have the funds to replace the cooker, but really needs to start eating cooked meals again. Please could you help her to buy a replacement cooker? Thank you for your help.
This lady is a pensioner and has some severe bladder, arthritis and sleep apnea problems that have not been followed up due to Covid-19. Her washing machine has broken down and she has no spare money to pay for it as she lives on her own and only receives a state pension. She needs to wash up to 5 pairs of trousers a day and is terrified that she smells as she can only afford the cheap continence problems. She has said it would be truly wonderful if people can help her as she doesn’t have much family.
M is really trying to get her immediate environment nice so that it can help her mental health difficulties. She really struggles with her mental health including hearing voices and feeling suicidal as well as her physical health and has been in hospital such a lot. We are wanting to help her by getting her flat decorated so that it feels like home and encourages her to stay safe. If you can help we would be so grateful. Thank you!
N is a lady struggling with both mental health issues and high blood pressure which is resulting in loss of eye sight. Her current eating habits are putting her health and blood pressure at risk and the simple addition of an oven would enable her to cook in a way that begins to turn things in her life around. She can't afford one and would be so grateful if you were able to help her. Thank you!
I just rang one of service users- she’s 80, shielding and is very lonely and suffers from low mental health. Her physical health has deteriorated since lockdown, she is in a lot of pain and struggling to get around. To cap it all off she has to now pay for her TV license and is only on a basic pension and is very worried. She lives on her own and the TV is only her company because she is shielding. Please give if you can to help an ex nurse to not live in total isolation. Acts 435 has given her hope. Thank you.
