A life-changing bond with mental and physical health benefits
Neil & Sage
After an unexpected diagnosis of MS, Neil soon had to rely on a mobility scooter. He found himself embarrassed and demoralised, staying in the office at lunchtime and feeling ignored and avoided when he did encounter people in the street. In 2021 he was paired with Sage, his “four-legged life-changer”.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Neil had been told to stay at home because his immune system was severely compromised. Even so, with Sage, he felt positive and knew he had plenty to look forward to thanks to his closely bonded partnership.
With Sage at his side, Neil no longer feels embarrassed on his scooter and every lunchtime, they go out together.
