Home care recipient Sheila smiles with be care worker

I’ve been a Comlink Australia client for 13 years since my husband had his first stroke. All I can say is that without them we wouldn’t have been able to do anything. They have been a godsend to me.

Ever since I have been with Comlink Australia I haven’t been able to fault one person. They are always cheerful.

Comlink Australia take me to the doctors, hospital, shopping, and they help with travel, gardening and cleaning.

When I was in hospital I was discharged late in the day and I was so worried about how I would get home. I thought it was too late to call Comlink Australia but when I did, they came for me straight away. What better service could I have had!

My husband I were very close, and we worked together for many years. He was a family man, loved fishing and we very much enjoyed travelling together. He passed away a couple of years ago and I miss him dearly.

I have always been into needle work and for a long time I have enjoyed cross-stitch. I went to Tafe and learnt from a master framer to frame my own work. These days my hands won’t do what I want them to do and it’s much harder for me to do needle work.

When I go shopping with Comlink Australia they always help me on and off the bus and when we arrive home they carry my shopping right to my kitchen bench and leave with a warm goodbye.
