“Before coming to the Hospice I was pretty well in bed all the time. I would get dizzy. I had fallen a couple of times and I was afraid to fall again. I had some help at home but I hadn’t had a decent shower in a few weeks. My first day at the Hospice one of the personal support workers told me she would get me up using a bath chair in the shower. I have to tell you, it felt wonderful having that shower and the chair helped me. It felt solid and I was able to sit well - it didn’t wobble and I wasn’t afraid of falling. After that experience I started getting up every day."
