Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

One of our fantastic Home Instead CAREGivers, Sue helped save a mans life in Weymouth, whilst she was on a family walk around town. Sue rushed to assist a neighbour of Peter Ewart who had collapsed outside his house. Sue worked with the neighbour to deliver CPR before the paramedics could arrive and take over. Happily there was a happy ending and Mr Ewart survived and is eternally grateful for Sue's timely and helpful intervention.
