lady living with dementia safe & warm
A vulnerable elderly lady suffering from dementia and anxiety, locked herself out of her home during very cold weather and was referred to us by the police.
When the officers had managed to open the door, they found there had been no heating in the property for several weeks.
Our Bobby visited within 24 hours and arranged temporary heating, contacted her housing association, fitted security lights and alarms and offered reassurance.
At the lady’s request, the Bobby revisited a few days later with her health worker, when work was carried out to the heating system, and the lady was left feeling much safer and warmer in her home.
