Pam’s story

Pam’s story

Pam believes in the power of neighbours helping neighbours and has made an effort to know others in her building. Her next-door neighbour, Mid, was concerned a few years ago, that if something happened to her overnight, no one would know. Mid now hangs a bow outside her door from 7am to 9pm so Pam knows she’s OK. When Mid experienced a recent health emergency, Pam was there to offer help and comfort while she called for an ambulance. Now they speak just about every day.
