[Rita] I've been with Wesley Mission for about five and a half years.
Emma helps me a lot here with doing things that I've, I can't write very well because it hurts my hand,
so she does a lot of writing for me and just takes me everywhere. She's wonderful.
They're just so good. They're just like friends coming of a daytime.
The doctor recommended the water aerobics. He said they were very good and Emma learned how to do them.
So she gets in the water with me and we do the exercises together.
[Emma] When I first met Rita, it was because her doctor wanted to go, wanted her to go and do some physio therapy and, in a pool. And she said, I can't swim. She didn't know how to, how to swim or how to be in the water or like how to save herself if she had to, really.
We started off just walking up and down laps of the pool. We made some friends and got a little exercise program. And I remember Rita said to me in the beginning, oh, I couldn't do it if I wasn't holding your hand. But then by the end, we were just swimming right through.
[Rita] Yeah, it's just fun, it's just a day of, I don't have to stress or worry or, I just know Emma's coming and we'll have a good time.
