I am learning to walk again, with the aid of a stick, working on balance. I can get myself up in the morning, have a wash and prepare my own breakfast, when and as I choose. A year ago, I came out of hospital and couldn’t do very much at all any more, even making a cup of coffee seemed like climbing a mountain, I certainly could not get myself in and out of bed. Through sheer determination, the absolute drive to be independent and the desire never to be a burden, I can now walk to the stairlift and use this to get up to the 1st floor. My major objective is to reach the bathroom and bedroom, once I receive a second stick that I can leave upstairs, oh what joy it will be using my bathroom and bedroom again, allowing my dining room to return to what it was! People ask me how I have come so far, I simply made up my mind to change and to be once more self-reliant, in my own home, surrounded by my own things and making my own choices on a daily basis. Alexa is always available to play my favourite classical music, I read, complete crosswords and love a good jigsaw puzzle! Hospital is so difficult, there is no time to dedicate to reablement and it makes it so much harder to get back on your feet after a stay, but I simply could not face the loss of independence. After a stay at Snowdon and a nursing home, I was finally back home… My independence now is such that Mindful Care and Support, my Home Care Provider, are amazed on a daily basis by the dwindling support I need towards total independence. I can’t wait! Whatever life throws at you, I believe that we have the power within to make changes at any time of life, and to be independent, where support becomes an enhancement rather than a necessity.
