Retirement living residents regain independence thanks to The Unlimited Company
Mobility and lifestyle store The Unlimited Company from Simplyhealth has loaned residents at a retirement living development two scooters after theirs were destroyed in a fire.
The mobility scooters were a lifeline for those residents who owned them and without them they have lost their independence. We hope the loaned scooters will benefit those residents and give them the ability to get out and about when they want.
Eleven residents at Westfield Court, in Old Winton Road, Andover, lost their mobility scooters after they were completely destroyed when a mobility scooter shed at the property caught fire on Saturday 9 July.
The scooters are on loan for as long as the residents need them.
We are very happy that Simplyhealth has provided us with two loan scooters which will enable the eleven residents to regain their mobility within two weeks of the fire.
We set up a volunteer car pool for the first week following the fire but having the scooters mean the residents can maintain their mobility and independence and is peace of mind for them.
