Mr Jones is 76 and lives alone. He has dementia, arthritis and heart failure, is in constant pain and has poor mobility.
Mr Jones was sleeping downstairs in a chair. He had a gas fire in the living room which was not working correctly and therefore needed disconnecting. He had no awareness of gas safety and had previously left the cooker on, sometimes unignited.
Mr Jones was unable to pay for the necessary changes needed to keep him safe. So FILT gave him a grant of £246 to disconnect the mains gas supply and make changes so he could live safely in his home.
