Here are a few stories of the people we assist and those we try to help get into the right situation for their growing needs.
ZANE has assisted Deanna H, an ex- teacher, with some new spectacles. Like so many civil servants she lost her pension and all her savings in the great collapse. She expressed her gratitude for this assistance saying, “It removes the big load of worry I had about paying for what I knew I needed.” It is wonderful to know that a relatively small intervention can make such a huge impact.
We were very pleased to tell Myra W. that she has finally been accepted for a grant from the by RCEL, the first one came through last week. She was so overwhelmed with emotion, saying how this grant will change her life. We welcome Myra into the ZANE / RCEL family and look forward to seeing her at the Veterans tea party at the end of the week.
The W Family
The W family continue to be a worry for the team. This family are proud owners of their own home but they refuse to sell it and move. Selling their large home would allow them to move into one of the local care complexes and have funds left over, which will assist them with their growing expenses. We keep trying to help them understand that we cannot offer them ZANE aid when they have such a big asset that could see them live out their lives in comfort and security.
Aubrey E’s family have gently insisted that he move to a care home, where he can be looked after well. He is extremely thin and perhaps not eating very well, so moving to the care home where all his meals will be prepared will definitely benefit him. In cases like these it is so helpful if supportive family can work with us to come to a happy and sensible conclusion.
