Twice a week Jean uses a Community Car driver to take her to a GP appointment and a trip to her Hairdresser. Jean has difficulty in walking and would need to travel on two buses to reach her Hairdresser. She also calls for the BAT Bus for all her shopping needs and often goes out on some of the afternoon outings. Jean chooses to go to Castlepoint Shopping Park every Monday where she can be dropped off at the Shopmobility unit and takes an electric scooter to do all her shopping.
“I use all of the services offered by sedcat and I am so grateful, now I can stay in my own home and manage quite nicely by calling for a community car driver or the BAT Bus. My regular driver, Diana, arrives at my house with a smile and she always helps me into her car, I am never rushed. I really feel that I can now call Diana my friend and we always seem to have time for a chat which is lovely. I now feel that I can stay in my own home and keep my independence”
