When Companion Stairlifts were contacted by Cwmbran Environmental Awareness about their efforts to help make a local resident's home more accessible, they were eager to get involved.
Pontypool resident Jackie Harvey had her leg amputated earlier this year and returned to her home in March. But she was no longer able to go up and down stairs independently, in fact her partner was carrying her up and downstairs.
Requests for help to the relevant local authorities were denied and she was left with the prospect of moving into a new home and being further away from her family.
Luckily for Jackie, Cwmbran Environmental Awareness came to the rescue and offered their assistance. They approached a number of local companies for help as well as Companion Stairlifts, who generously donated a curved stairlift which was installed less than one week after the initial enquiry.
Commenting on her new Companion stairlift, Jackie said: "It's absolutely brilliant. Fantastic. I can't thank them enough. They are a brilliant company to deal with."
Companion managing director Clare Brophy said: "Jackie's story immediately made an impact on the team here at Companion and we were delighted to be able to help adapt her home so she can once again feel safe and happy there."
