Community Support: Shirley
By the time Shirley came to Ty Cornel she was very frail from drinking so much without eating anything for so long. Whilst living at Ty Cornel the support staff arranged for Shirley to get a full health check-up and take her to all her appointments, they even organised for her to get her first pair of prescription glasses. After 20 years of doing drink and drugs, she finally feels like she can stop drinking and is now sober and very happy.
"She feels cared for and that staff look out for her, there’s no judgement. Shirely feels safe knowing staff are there."
The staff have helped Shirley build herself back up and she even has clothes that she feels proud of now. After months of not seeing her daughter, she’s reconnected with her and is excited to be attending her wedding soon. Her daughter has told her she’s glad she’s at Ty Cornel as she sees the staff taking such good care of her.
