Meet Susan

Susan had a seizure six years ago which left her partially paralysed. Her only option was a care home until she secured an adapted Horizon home.

'Having it like this, I'm confident, I'm happy to have friends come and visit me and sit, and I can make tea and coffee. It's having the confidence to entertain. '
