“Staying in my own home is so important to me”
It was great to meet up with one of our customers recently to find out what being an Ostara customer means to him and his family.
Brian Holman has lived in the same house in Walker for over 35 years and was determined to stay there despite his advancing years. Following a consultation with one of our specialists, we were able to equip Brian with some simple alarm technology that means he can carry on living in the home he loves safely and securely.
He told us:
“I’ve lived in this house since 1982 and it’s really important to me that I can stay here even though I’m not as young as I used to be. I started wearing my pendant alarm in 2008 after some health problems that saw me in and out of hospital. Knowing I’m always connected to the staff in South Gosforth is a weight off my mind – my grown-up children live nearby but I like to keep my independence and it means a lot to not have to bother my family, especially in the middle of the night. I get up in the morning and get ready for the day feeling safe which is priceless. Staying in my own home is so important to me.”
Ostara response officer Andrew Lloyd is part of the team of response officers that answers alarm calls 24 hours a day, every day of the year:
“Brian is a great example of how, with the right support in place, you can live safely and independently in the home you love. He has a great outlook on life too, always a smile on his face and time for a chat.”
