DRC living life connected

Richard – Living his best life!

When Richard first joined DRC living life connected many years ago, ten pin was a challenge indeed
β€’ Richard uses the ramp to send the bowling ball on its way
β€’ His total score would be the 40’s

A few years back
β€’ Richard no longer uses the ramp to launch the bowling ball
β€’ Richard now uses the bumper pads to assist his bowling
β€’ His total score is in the 60’s

Very recently
β€’ Richard no longer uses the bumper pads
β€’ Richard bowls without any aids at all
β€’ He regularly scores in the 110’s

Supports were tailored to Richards needs as he required them, and then slowly disappeared as they were no longer needed.

Everyday people, everyday places, everyday things, everyday times.
