Mary’s story

Pensioner Mary Jenkins was facing a tough time alone at home – until our volunteer called round to help.

After a stroke landed him in hospital for ten months, Randolph wasn’t ready to face the world again – until we lent a hand.

Nobody enjoys the dentist, but Ann’s dental phobia meant she hadn’t had a check-up for 40 years – and she was in painful misery.

When disabled pensioner Maureen Gallagher needed extra support at home, the Red Cross stepped in to help.

Independent living: help people at home

From giving people confidence to doing a weekly shop, our volunteers help people to live independently in their own home.
