I get out more and to different places now. Marylin comes to me once a week on a Friday from Crossroads. We can use the low rider bus service and it's very good but sometimes we need to use taxis. Money for transport comes out of my budget. We go to the Theatre, shopping, Edinburgh and Dundee. My goal for this week is to get to Dunfermline to see a bench with name plaque's on dedicated to my friend and her husband. She passed away 2 years ago and I would like to go there and see it in person.
2) How do the payments work? Do you use an accountant?
I don’t pay anything thing. Quill does it for me.
3) How does Marylin from Crossroads assist you?
She takes me out places. She helps with light domestic duties like tidying up, ironing a few items and sometimes she hangs stuff up for me if I can't reach.
4) Has SDS made a positive difference to you life?
Yes, I can now do food shopping once a week and get big items that Marylin helps bring home in the taxi.
