While working together, Mandy and Elizabeth have become firm friends. Mandy helps Elizabeth stay independent in her home, while Elizabeth is always happy to provide advice and share a laugh and a cup of tea.
How are you liking it so far?
Well, it's very scary. (LAUGHS)
Don't know what you do next, or ask next! (LAUGHS)
So, I asked you before if you remember the first time you met Mandy.
It's quite a while back now.
So, and we hit it off straightaway.
She's nice and friendly and helps me keep the house clean.
Because I can't anymore.
Because I've had a few heart attacks, so I couldn't do the vacuuming anymore.
How has she helped change your life?
Well, just that... I know that I'm not on my own.
And I have company when I want to, and...
Yeah, before, I was in the house on my own, and...
We always laugh.
And if she's like, "You should get some cake." (LAUGHS)
If not, it's biscuit. (LAUGHS)
I can't believe Elizabeth is 90.
She's just, yeah, quick-witted. She's just with it.
We talk a lot.
You know, about her life, about the things she's been through. World War II.
Yeah, just her stories...
Her experiences. Um...
Her husband, her love.
Her love for her family.
I mean, you look at her house, there's...
..hundreds of pictures.
You know, she's lived a life.
You know, we really do live in a world, I think, where we take life so seriously, and then you look at her and just every day, she lives life to the fullest.
