Jay had been unable to go swimming for nearly 10 years due to her loss of mobility, however our Morley Group Home supported her goal in getting back into the pool.
The Morley staff worked hard to meet all of Jay’s medical requirements for getting back into the water, including liaising with her medical professionals to gain their approval. They also worked with Jay’s physiotherapist to complete a risk assessment, plan her swim schedule and organise any special equipment.
With assistance from our Leisure, Lifestyle, Learning (LLL) team in Girrawheen and our Training staff, the team from Morley were able to move Jay’s support schedule so that staff from LLL and Morley could take Jay swimming at Beatty Park Leisure Centre. Our EN Educator & Trainer, Nicole Grame, even provided catheter training for the staff so that they were well-prepared.
As of the 15th of March, Jay was back in the pool. Her Mum, Kerry, told staff that Jay looked like she had a ball in the water!
