75-year-old gentleman, married to Dorothy for 50 years.
Ex-navy marine Ernie had a stroke 14 years ago and now requires assistance with walking and general day-to-day activities. He lives at home with his wife, Dorothy and their cat, Daisy. Ernie gets a visit from his carer every day to help him out of bed and get him settled in front of the TV. He used to spend lots of time with his brother Ron but since his stroke he has been unable to do some of the activities that they used to enjoy together.
73-year-old lady, married to Ernie for 50 years.
Following Ernie’s stroke, Dorothy struggled to look after him as her own health naturally deteriorated with age. She now uses a walking stick to help her stay on her feet but still enjoys growing prize-winning tomatoes in her greenhouse. Dorothy lives at home with Ernie and their cat, Daisy. Ernie’s carer also helps Dorothy prepare the meals for the day as she still loves to cook.
68-year-old gentleman, brother of Ernie.
Ron’s wife Liz passed away in 2002 so he started spending more time with his brother Ernie. Ron started to feel lonely when they were unable to do some of the activities they used to enjoy together following Ernie’s stroke. Two years ago, when his health deteriorated, Ron moved into an Allied Extra Care Scheme so that he still had his own space, but never felt alone – especially since he started spending time with the other residents at cinema club on Tuesdays and enjoying a boogie at line dancing class on Thursdays.
Joe is a keen footballer and avid supporter of his local team, Stafford Rangers. He was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old and his family wanted to ensure that he grew up alongside children his own age, in the same environment as them. Joe’s carer has established a routine that he has now familiarised himself with and sees Joe enjoying time at the park, arts and crafts and a weekly scout meeting.
Earlier this year, Alicia was involved in a serious multi-vehicle collision on the motorway and spent several weeks in hospital recovering. Alicia is now on a reablement programme and adapting to life in a wheelchair, something which she is tackling head on by joining the local wheelchair basketball and tennis teams. Alicia lives alone, so her carer has helped to ensure her home is accessible so that she can still be independent in day to day life.
Adam has always had a keen interest in computers, but he struggled to develop his skills as there were very few courses available for individuals with a learning disability. Adam’s carer has provided the support and guidance that he needed to use his laptop proficiently, which has enabled Adam to email his friend in Australia and upload pictures to Facebook of his beloved dog Jasper.
