After nearly five months of shielding to protect him from coronavirus, Livability York House resident Peter was finally able to meet his three sisters Susan (left), Anita (centre) and Tracy (right). Peter has been a resident at York House for seven years. He has epilepsy, having suffered a severe brain injury from a car crash when he was a young boy. Peter usually uses a wheelchair to get around.
His sister Anita describes their first meeting in early August: ‘It was absolutely wonderful to see Peter in person after all this time. As for Livability and what they've done for him, we couldn't have asked for more.’
When Peter was asked if he'd missed his siblings after such a long time, he replied ‘no, not at all’. Clearly, lockdown hasn't dented his sense of humour.
