Lewis - Male companionship builds confidence
With a number of medical conditions, Lewis is confined to bed for much of the day. Losing his beloved wife last year, he now finds himself supported by a female nurse team; many of whom he has never met.
Being permanently bedridden is an unimaginable situation for any of us, but being a man with unknown female nurses to tend to him only added to his feelings of isolation.
Lewis has always been full of life with a particular passion for sport. By the time he got in touch with us, Lewis was feeling overwhelmingly frustrated, helpless and lonely. He contacted ENRYCH, keen to see whether we might be the difference in his life.
Through ENRYCH, Lewis was partnered with a male volunteer, who visits him on a regular basis and provides companionship rather than care. The partnership has made an enormous difference to Lewis’s life, but it doesn’t stop there. Lewis has plans to leave his bed, get out in the fresh air and smell the flowers.
