During lockdown, Margaret moved to Canberra to live with her sister. But thanks to The Bridge’s online services, she was still able to access supports from afar!
“The Bridge thought of a different way to stay in touch with me during my stay in Canberra and we were able to connect and have ‘digital supports’ with my new support worker, Jamie. This meant that I got to see, talk to and get to know Jamie online. Together we had some fun by baking cakes together, going for virtual walks around each other’s gardens, talking about footy and having a laugh.
“Although it took me a little while to get used to this type of support, in the end I enjoyed our weekly catch ups. Upon returning home, I am pleased to say my weekly sessions with Jamie continue, and I enjoy receiving supports from her and my other support workers on a weekly basis.”
