This month we caught up with an NDIS participant who has been with Recovery Station since the launch of the NDIS in 2013.
At the age of 39, Tania suffered a stroke. She was released from hospital and moved into an Aged Care Facility and after some time was able to go back home to be with her husband and daughter. The lack of home support services available for Tania put an enormous strain on her and her family. Unfortunately, they were forced to move her back into an Aged Care Facility where heartbreakingly she had to reside for 3 years.
Whilst in the nursing home, Tania did not stop searching for alternative options to her situation. Eventually she learnt of the NDIS and 8 months later she was back home with her family. Without the NDIS, Tania would still be a young woman living in aged care.
The Recovery Station Occupational Therapists were available to assist Tania with all her Occupational Therapy needs. This has included mobility safety, wheelchair reviews, equipment to assist in occupations and home modifications. Tania commented that without Recovery Station “I don’t think it would have been as easy.”
Recovery Station “were in my corner and helped with everything I needed” she said. Tania is now back at work and self-managing her NDIS funding. A real inspiration!
