Tenants Stories

Neil's Story

“Since I got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I can do everything I used to, it just takes me 10 times longer to do it. Every day’s a challenge but living in my JBD flat makes it much easier. I’ve got various adaptions in my flat including an electric front door which is great if I am in my scooter. Having the house managers here gives me the peace of mind should I ever need them.”

Tenants at Fairacres

Louise & Harry’s Story

“…absolutely delighted to be at Fairacres and it was absolutely the right move for us at the right time. Over the years, we have made lots of friends here, we’ve seen a lot of people come and go and have a lot of very happy memories of wonderful people who we wouldn’t have met if they hadn’t been living here.”

Daniel's story

“I knew about Jewish Blind & Disabled but I didn’t realise it was for people my age… If I fall over, I know that help is on hand… I’m much happier than I was before and my flat is so much larger than my previous one. I find people here are friendly.”

Diana and Steve's Story

“We were introduced to Jewish Blind & Disabled and quite honestly I think it saved our lives. We feel safe and know we can live independently. Our flat is totally adapted to our needs and we are part of a lovely Jewish community.  If we hadn’t have been offered a flat at JBD, I think it would have been unimaginable and I wouldn’t have wanted to test those waters.”

Gillian, tenant at Cecil Rosen Court

Gillian's Story

“My glaucoma is getting worse, it doesn’t improve and I find it increasingly difficult to read and do some of things I used to do with ease. My arthritis affects my mobility and causes me some pain… The Zoom classes and activities have provided me with something to do and there have been some really interesting sessions.”
