Elizabeth is an ongoing client with Cosy Home & Community Care. She is blind and lives on her own.
When Cosy Home & Community Care commenced with Elizabeth’s support service a key focus for the client management team was to address her goals for independent living and match a carer who was best suited for her requirements.
Elizabeth was very clear about her goals for independent living.
Elizabeth looks forward to seeing her support worker on a regular basis. They have developed a genuine, friendly relationship and engage in some great banter and laughs. It means a lot to Elizabeth that her support worker listens to her and that she can talk and confide in him.
