Living alone in her family home, she’d had a couple of falls which resulted in hip and knee injuries. Her daughter Clare and the rest of the family were growing increasingly concerned about her.
When Yvonne fell, and punctured her lung, she realised she could no longer “put on a show’’ that everything was ok.
So, Yvonne and the family began talking about retirement living.
Resident, Yvonne Hocking
The serviced apartment offers the best of both worlds for Yvonne. She enjoys the peace of sitting in her La-Z-Boy in her apartment if she wants some quiet time.
Or if she hears that something is happening, she is straight out to get in on the action. It seems she enjoys being involved so much that Clare finds she can never reach her Mum on the phone!
It is safe to say Yvonne has certainly got her spark back.
