Award Winning Gardener Gets Help with Uniscan

“From the age of 5 I had an interest in gardening and I was determined that my stroke would not stop me doing the thing I love as I truly believe it is not about what you can’t do but what you can do.”

An award-winning gardener and Uniscan customer says that she puts much of her success down to the company’s walkers.

Jayne Smith from Stone, Staffordshire, had a left sided stroke 10 years ago and has been using Uniscan products throughout that time. She has won numerous gardening awards including: Best Garden in Staffordshire (Staffordshire newsletter), Street Scene Stafford’s Pride in your Patch awards, Inspiration to Others award and Stone in Bloom.  In total Jayne has collected approximately 14 awards.

She has just taken delivery of a new four wheeled Glider Plus Adjustable and explained: “The walkers have been a life saver for me – it is as simple as that and without it I would be unable to get out of bed never mind into the garden.  From preparing meals and personal care to visiting friends and enjoying days out, the walker enables me to have complete independence and dignity on a daily basis.”

She added: “From the age of 5 I had an interest in gardening and I was determined that my stroke would not stop me doing the thing I love as I truly believe it is not about what you can’t do but what you can do.  The design and stability of the Walker allows me to carry small bags of compost, plant pots, garden tools etc around the garden and I also use the walker to help me access the borders when lowering myself to the ground and getting back up again.  Despite the pathway in my garden not being very level the walker is always stable and provides me with the peace of mind and confidence I need.”
