A small step into social care - a big step for Kelvin!


Profile: Oaklea, 12th Jan, 2022

As you are aware we are supporting several campaigns at the moment to encourage people to consider a career in social care.

Make that move….

And as if to illustrate the difference you could make to someone’s life - just see what an impact our teams in South Lakes have made to Kelvin!

Vanessa Washington, Team Supervisor: “Kelvin was recently supported to physiotherapy where we worked out how best to support him upstairs in his home.”

Why a physio session makes a difference…

Physiotherapy will improve your mobility and independence with everyday tasks by improving muscle strength, joint flexibility, balance and coordination. A physio session can also provide equipment that will facilitate mobility and ensure that you are safe. It’s all about making life easier -and everyday experiences better - for people like Kelvin.

Think you’ll agree - it’s already made a huge difference…

On the move - in more ways than one…

As well as supporting lovely people like Kelvin in their home - you also get to ensure they take an active part in their community - Kelvin (along with friends Shirley & Carolyn) recently went to see the ‘Knife Angel’ sculpture on its visit to Barrow.

Could you join us - supporting people like Kelvin?
