the last 16 years, Leisure
balance has played a very important role in my sons rehabilitation.
They have helped
guide us in the early years to what |
suit Mathews stage of rehab, holidays,
social activity( which is one of the hardest thing for someone
recovering from an
ABI, as they tend to
only have family to rely on) also arranging which carer suits
what holiday, that is a great comfort to the family knowing
that there son is having
time and being well looked after. There hasn't
been one instance that I
have asked for help and support that they haven't been there,
with advise and help.
The family and friends night organised by Leisure Balance
has been a great success,
seeing all the clients talking and sharing in something
only someone in
their situation would understand, and also gives them an opportunity to make new
friends which is very difficult in there lives."
"I first met Alison with the prospect of assistance to get into the community, I have a spinal cord injury and confined to a wheelchair!
We discussed volunteering and travel, at this point I have successfully started at an Aged Care Nursing Home assisting the residents
with craft and bingo!
Alison is exceptional at her job and follows through with every task that is asked of her!
We are still working on the travel!
I hope we continue to work together in the future!"
My son who has a ABI was referred to Leisure Balance by his occupational therapist who felt he needed a break from his normal daily activities.
We were lucky to meet with Sue Cox who not only had great organisational skills but had a wealth of knowledge of what was out there in the community.
Sue went out of her way to find the right activities and short holiday experiences to fit my son's personality. We have used Leisure Balance on
several occasions and cannot speak highly enough of their organisation."
I refer my clients to Leisure Balance regularly and with confidence. I've seen each member of their team work with my clients to build on genuine interests, and get more meaning and enjoyment out of life.
