Jody is an independent woman who is capable in many ways but when we first met her, she was experiencing a number of issues in her life including relationship problems and feeling unhappy with her accomodation. Her lack of knowledge about how to successfully maintain her day to day living (including cleaning and healthy eating) was having a negative impact on her life.
Jody wanted someone to get out and about with socially but also to help her explore alternative accomodation where she could live independently and with the right support. She needed a trusted friend to confide in.
Introducing Jody to her advocate Sally has been a wonderful experience for her and she has really benefitted from the long-term emotional and practical support given by her advocate.
