Phil was discharged from hospital into a nursing home in 2012 having suffered a large stroke. He was unable to walk, look after his dog or participate in any self care or domestic tasks. There was no light at the end of the tunnel.
Its been a long rocky road but thanks to YoungCare for funding his therapy he has received the community based physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy that he needs and also has a case manager who links him up with local support services.
Phil has now moved to an independent living unit. He is walking with an ankle foot orthosis and supervision and has some further goals he is working towards with the final aim of him living alone with carer support.
It has been a challenging journey but this man has never given up. Inspirational…WELL DONE!
