Patrick was a full time carer for his wife for 10 years. When she died earlier this year, he was bereft. When she died, he felt everything he knew was now gone.

Patrick is now a regular to the Men’s Shed, which enables him to learn new skills and fix things around his home. He also attends his local Snowdrop Café and volunteers with Strathcarron too.

Patrick has also reconnected with a friend. He has updated his new passport and they’ve booked a trip together.
