Coming together to help a long-term patient

By Tim Holmes | Fundraising Coordinator

The goal of the Rehabilitation Centre is to make sure every patient leaves with the resources, skills and confidence to live independently and return to their community as an equal and someone who can contribute. But in some cases, this goal is seemingly impossible to achieve.

Eddy has been a patient in the Rehab Centre for many years and is paralysed from the waist down. He has no family to return to and care for him and suffers from regular health complications such as infections which require constant medical treatment. The resources needed to allow him to live independently of the hospital have always been so much that it has been impossible to re-house Eddy.

Thankfully a few months ago, this finally changed. Thanks to some additional sponsorship, the local team arranged everything for Eddy to move into his own small house. They sourced a house nearby, employed a nurse to attend regularly to look after his medical needs, and cooks and cleaners to ensure he can live comfortably.

The salaries of these people are being covered by the sponsorship we have received and it has been vital to this fantastic development we thought might not happen.

As with all rehab patients, the team also worked hard to ensure Eddy has the skills and resources to earn some money for himself. They have helped him set up his own business making and selling biscuits and sweets to give him some extra money for living expenses.

After years in the hospital, this is a huge step for Eddy and the team who looked after him. It shows that with the right support, even the most challenging cases can have a positive outcome. 

Thank you for supporting this important work.
