Sally's Story

Today we would like to share the story of Sally* (name protected for privacy).

Our colleague Helen* lived in a small country town and met Sally this way, typical of being a small country town. She discovered that her husband and Sally’s husband served in same battalion (at different times) – the Third Royal Australian Regiment – and also served in the Korean War. They all became very close, and spent a lot of time together at each other’s houses sharing meals and stories together.

One day Sally’s husband was diagnosed with cancer and tragically ended up passing away. This left a hole in not only Sally’s life, but Helen and her husband’s too as they were all such good friends.

When her husband passed away, Sally lost herself. She spent her life knowing how to look after him, but once he’d gone, she didn’t know how to look after herself. Sally still spent a fair bit of time at Helen’s house, keeping each other company and helping each other through this tough time. Helen noticed more and more that Sally was becoming quite unkept, and she was concerned about her. She went to her house one day, and what she saw was truly shocking… rubbish and paraphernalia stacked up to her knees… the house smelled terrible and was filthy. Her dog also lived inside with her and made a mess. You could barely move. It was clear Sally was living from her bed.

Helen was lost with what to do, until she thought of Legacy. She called them, and no questions asked, sent out a cleaning team to Sally’s house.

Sally, and Helen, are so grateful for the kindness of Legacy. If it wasn’t for them, Helen wouldn’t have known what to do to help her friend in this situation.
