This is the time of year when people are enjoying the sunshine and are getting out and about in the glorious weather but for Iris Andersen recently, following a minor incident which left her leg bruised, the Unity Mobility service was a lifeline.
Unity Mobility runs the well-known Shopmobility service based at the Andover Bus Station but they also provide a less publicised Loan Hire Service. The service is available to anyone requiring mobility equipment on a short term basis whether for a weekend away, a holiday or even when someone has been laid up for a short time due to an injury or broken limb.
On this occasion, Iris was the grateful recipient hiring the equipment for a few days whilst her leg got better.
“I walk everywhere around Andover and didn’t realise just how difficult I would find it when my leg was bad. I would like to make everyone aware that you can rent the Unity mobility equipment on a daily, weekend or even weekly basis for a small charge. The friendly Unity staff will talk you through and help you familiarise yourself before you set off! I would thoroughly recommend using this service if you have an injury, are undergoing rehabilitation or perhaps you have a visitor who has mobility problems, who may come to stay with you while they are on holiday as the equipment is not always that easy to transport.” said Iris.
