Following a spell of ill health in hospital, earlier this year Terry was referred to ECL to receive short-term Reablement care at home, as well as mobility equipment from our Community Equipment Service to help him rebuild his confidence and independence.
"I consider it a small price to pay. Considering the risks that the care workers like ECL and others are taking on a daily basis."
Terry was so impressed with the service that he received that he wrote a letter to the Harwich and Manningtree Standard, which was printed:
“People may wonder what happens when they are finally discharged from hospital, as indeed I did, after spending around three months in Trinity Ward.
“At the time, I was not aware of the way the system worked. I need not have worried as a company called ECL took over the duties of settling me back into my home life again.
“I have been so impressed, especially in the last difficult few weeks, the manner how the staff of ECL have handled mine and other folks’ care in the community.
“The care team at ECL are yet another batch of dedicated people, working behind the lines without a fuss that deserve public recognition.
“I do hope the public do not jump the gun and spoil all the good work isolation has done.
“I spent three months in hospital and have come home to continue to live in isolation with my wife, as we are in the higher risk bracket.
“I consider it a small price to pay. Considering the risks that the care workers like ECL and others are taking on a daily basis.”
