Vic is in his 60’s and now lives alone. He had a stroke which affected his left side and has little function in his left arm – effectively, he cannot grip.
His partner, who died a couple of years ago, did all the cooking in the household. Since then, Vic has been reliant upon his daughter and home care services for his drinks and meals.
The county council’s reablement service helped him to use a microwave so he can reheat ready meals for himself and a kettle was ﬁtted on t a tipper so that he can make drinks
Vic is happy to be more independent, his daughter has more time for herself and Vic is no longer in need of home care.
