Little help goes a long way – thank you!

Hi, my name is Tina. Six years ago I was diagnosed with PLS MND. It came to the point five years ago that I required a little help with my everyday needs.

I was very reluctant to accept care at first as I wanted to remain independent. My carers promoted my independence and didn’t stop me doing anything I was capable of doing for myself.

I chose Elite Care Solutions as I had previously met a gentleman at Lindsey Lodge Hospice day care who also had MND, he was always well presented, happy and spoke fondly of his “Elite ladies”. I have a great team of carers, they always leave me with a smile on my face and are a credit to the company. My main carer is Dawn, she comes to me every day that she works. We go out on social calls together and have made some wonderful memories.

Recently while at Cleethorpes I mentioned that I would never stand on the sand again, Dawn said “Oh yes you will” and she wheeled me down the ramp and helped me to stand on the beach. This made my day. Just goes to show what you can do with a little help. Long may it continue.
