More accessibility for Live Alone Elderly

The live alone elderly need to be able to access a wide range of support from Home Support North [organization in my area] or similar service nation-wide.

 

Need more pavements & ramps
Ability to read prices of groceries when shopping
Parking spots for mobility scooters

Why the contribution is important

I have macular degeneration and am a new member of the Blind Foundation. I am 85 years old and live alone as my doctor says I am capable to. I am amazed at the lack of pavements and ramps avaliable in Russell for my mobility scooter - since aquiring my scooter in January 2019. Holiday traffic, excludes using in the roads. I am lucky I have friends who allow me to park under cover when visiting the shops - there are no public parking places. I cannot read the prices of the groceries in the supermarket. Need to access 'Home Help' with shopping. I understand that Home Support is not accepting clients unless they need personal care.

It is critical to the live alone elderly to be able to access a wide range of support from Home Support North or similar services nation wide.
