Greta from Salisbury has been caring for her husband Rene, who has been practically house-bound, for three years due to his ill health. Living in a rural area, quality of life for the couple has steadily dwindled in recent years. But now, thanks to a Personal Grant, Greta has been able to buy Rene a much needed mobility scooter to give him back his independence.

Greta said: “It would have been difficult to keep caring for my husband the way I do without this grant. I can’t stress how much it means to me and my husband and how it has improved our quality of life. Something as simple as being able to leave the house with my husband and enjoy the outdoors is a true blessing.”

"It may seem like a small amount of money to some but to me, and my husband. It has made a huge difference!"

Greta continued: “The frustrations of ill health and limited mobility have at times made my husband very sad but thanks to this new mobility scooter, the twinkle in his eye has returned. It may seem like a small amount of money to some but to me, and my husband. It has made a huge difference!”
