COTA SA presents: In episode four, Barbara talks about how she overcame her feelings of isolation after the passing of her much loved husband. With the support of her Peer Volunteer Majorie, Barbara rebuilt her confidence to attend social activities as a single person. This renewed confidence has enabled her to reconnect with her passion to travel, something she didn’t think she’d do again. With plans for a week-long intrastate travel trip and beyond, once covid travel restrictions ease, Barbara is excited about the adventures to come.
