Victor’s Story – Home Care Packages

Happy senior couple dancing together in living roomVictor is in his late 60s and unfortunately is no longer able to drive.  This meant that Victor had no way of attending his weekly dance classes, which were the one thing he loved doing. 

Victor has always been a very active, social and independent person however recently he has been finding simple tasks like shopping, hanging out the washing and of course travelling to and from his dance classes more and more difficult. 

These struggles left Victor feeling frustrated and at times depressed because he wanted to remain in the comfort of his own home and stay involved in community activities. 

Victor started on a HSS Home Care Package and after only a couple of sessions it was evident his quality of life and sense of well being improved dramatically.  He became more positive; cheery and smiling, because HSS were able to provide that extra level of support that ensured Victor could remain at home, and of course, attend his dance classes.
