“The best support we can give to anyone recovering from a fall is by truly listening, understanding and partnering with that person through their recovery. Then we look for the solutions which are specific for that person. Recovery Focus through Richmond Fellowship has been at the forefront of this very thing for over 60 years. That’s why I feel privileged to join the Board and grateful for the opportunity to add my expertise to help us continue the great work already achieved and to find new ways forward in our ever changing world".
