Lucy suffered a stroke in 2016. Since her stroke Lucy has worked hard to get back to her previous independence. Before attending ARC Lucy had worked hard to regain her physical abilities but is still experiencing difficulties with her speech and her cognitive functioning.
Lucy has been attending ARC for cognitive rehabilitation for almost a year. She has been working hard within her occupational therapy sessions to increase her concentration and memory. Her aim is to return to study and retrain. This has been difficult for Lucy to keep focused and determine what information is important when presented with lots of information.
In recent sessions Lucy has presented to her occupational therapist her journey since her stroke demonstrating the amazing improvements she has made and her motivation to continue to in her own words “get better”.
Keep working hard Lucy the results are definitely showing.
