Helen was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in September 2015. She lives with her very supportive husband David, who gave up his role as a manager to look after Helen and assist with her daily needs.
Helen couldn’t stand up independently. She required 2 people to assist but that raised concern about risk of injury to herself and her carers.
Helen began working with ARC Physiotherapist, Caroline and she is now using the EasyStand Evolv Standing Frame and for the first time in years she can stand up comfortably with her big smile on her face. Helen enjoys spending some time in the frame daily to relieve the pressure from sitting down in the same position for the whole day.
This Gold star award is not only awarded to Helen for her commitment and amazing work with her physiotherapist Caroline, but also for David who dedicates his life to her. Big praise to this lovely family and their fighting against MND by unconditional love, support and care to each other.
– Caroline, Neuro Physiotherapist
