From Hospital Bed to Community Explorer:

A Story of Transformation

At Help at Hand Support, we believe in the incredible potential of every participant. We aim to see beyond limitations and work tirelessly to empower individuals to achieve their goals and live fulfilling lives – in a way that is meaningful to them.

Today, we’d like to share a truly inspiring case study: the journey of Mike (name changed for privacy).

Just one year ago, Mike was discharged from the hospital with an Acquired Brain Injury and unable to walk. Transfers required specialist machinery, and daily life presented a significant challenge. Feeling isolated and dependent, Mike’s future seemed uncertain.

This is where Help at Hand Support stepped in. Our Support Care team has been working in close collaboration with Mike’s allied health team and have been implementing his physio rescheme with the goals of improving his mobility and his confidence in order to regain his independence.

A Commitment to Personalised Care:

Mike’s case wasn’t about a one-size-fits-all approach. Our care team meticulously reviewed his physiotherapy regime, liaising with the therapists on how we can best support his exercise and activity goals. Armed with this insight, the care team were then able to fully brief and assist the support team to ensure Mike’ physio program was integral to the main focus and priority of his care, while always tailoring the support to his evolving needs and requirements. Ongoing support and encouragement throughout every exercise and celebrating every milestone. No matter how small, it was so important.

Building Confidence, Step by Step:

The journey wasn’t always easy. There were setbacks, moments of frustration, and even days where progress seemed slow. However, our entire team from our Care Team leader, care coordinators and support workers worked in collaboration and remained by Mike’s side, throughout his rehab journey and offering a steady hand when needed.

A Transformation Takes Shape:

Fast forward to today, and Mike’s story is one of remarkable transformation. He’s no longer confined to his home. He’s walking, confidently accessing his community, and rediscovering the joy of independence. To having to travel only by wheelchair taxi, to now be able to walk up and down stairs unaided is truly remarkable and opens up a new world of exploration and access to Mike.

Empowering Lives, One Goal at a Time:

Mike’s newfound confidence extends beyond his physical capabilities. He feels empowered to take control of his life. With the support of our team, he’s even exploring the possibility of transitioning to private housing – a testament to his newfound independence.

Mike’s story is a shining example of what’s possible with dedication, expertise, and a commitment to person-centered care. It’s a story that inspires us every day, reminding us of the profound impact we can make on the lives of NDIS participants.

At Help at Hand Support, we’re dedicated to helping individuals like Mike achieve their full potential. If you’re looking for a disability support provider who prioritizes your goals, well-being, and independence, contact us today. We’d be honored to be part of your journey.
