Thanks to our wonderful neighbour Don Lancaster, I'm unsure how I/we would have coped. I had major ankle surgery in July, and I'm also the solo caregiver for my very elderly, almost blind Mother. Came home from hospital non weight bearing for 6 weeks, and with NO help from the DHB. Don, made and put down ramps over the steps for me, so that I could get across to the freezer, plus a ramp at our front door. He takes me shopping whenever I need to, fed our hens, puts out our rubbish and recycling.Plus, much, much more! He pops over at least twice a day. My Mother and I will be forever thankful to our wonderful neighbour, who sure does go the extra mile!
