Angy’s story

Angie is currently being cared for by Weldmar at Home.

She was first referred to Weldmar in the summer, and seen at home in Crossways by her Weldmar Community Nurse and had a home visit from one of the charity’s doctors, and more recently has been seen twice a day to receive care from the Weldmar at Home team.

“I was first introduced to Weldmar about two and a half months ago because of the cancer I have,” explains Angie, “and at first I was unsure because I’m quite a private person. But, after having the care and service I’ve had, which I didn’t realise was available, I wanted to say that Weldmar have been outstanding.”

“They have been helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them, and I am so happy that we have this service around here. I feel privileged to be able to have this care.”

Angie's Story angie with nurses

"The Weldmar at Home team are fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. I just can't praise them enough. I get on really well with them, and it helps me keep my sense of humour. We have a giggle, and it brightens up my day."

“I want to shout about this service, and how good it is. They’ve been informative, and any questions they can’t answer they will find someone who can. Weldmar has helped me feel secure. I can talk about my feelings, and my fears. I know that I can talk to any of the team, at any time, which is so helpful.”

“It’s not just me, it’s my family too. They are there for all of us.”

“Thank you all, so, so much. You have been useful and helpful, and I am so proud that we have this service around here. If anyone needs it, they really shouldn’t be afraid of it.”
