The Gift of Time at Christmas

Whilst we look forward to the festive season and sharing joy with loved ones, for disabled people and those who care for them, the chance of respite or to relax for just a minute is a distant hope. 

Lin and SteveImagine not being able to take a break at the time of year when you need it the most.For our guests, Lin and Steve, this is reality. Just 15 months after their wedding day, Steve suffered a massive stroke and Lin became his full-time carer. Their lives were suddenly turned upside down.

As Christmas approaches, we begin to think of our loved ones. It’s these times when Lin finds it hard to cope. All she wants is to spend quality time with her husband, to laugh, have fun and simply enjoy being ‘husband and wife’. Knowing that she and Steve can take much-needed respite at Revitalise is what keeps Lin going.
