I Get By With a Little Help from My Friends

One of the many advantages Co.As.It. Community Services can offer clients is access to a variety of services, including allied health and nursing. For one home care package client, Phyllis, this advantage has been truly life-changing.

Getting into bed had become so difficult for Phyllis that she was reliant on her husband physically supporting her to lift her legs. The situation clearly reduced Phyllis’ independence and created an added responsibility for her husband. Once her Care Service Coordinator became aware of the predicament, she arranged for an occupational therapist to visit Phyllis.

The solution was simple, lower the bed. The legs of the bed have now been adjusted and Phyllis is delighted with her newfound freedom. A simple referral to one of Co.As.It.’s many professionals can have a profound improvement in a client’s quality of life.
