When 52 year old Terri was found unconscious by her family, emergency services found it difficult to lift her. After 10 days in hospital recovering from a lung infection she came to stay at The Beach House – Rocky Bay’s guest house in Rockingham.
Terri’s support worker, Lisa made her welcome and introduced her to other guests. Rocky Bay’s Health and Wellness Officer, Kris, set up an exercise program. Through regular swimming, exercise and a healthy eating plan devised by Lisa, Terri has now lost 46kg! She is more mobile and has a vastly improved blood sugar level, which is crucial as she lives with diabetes.
Terri’s self esteem has also improved. She is less lonely and has taken an interest in fashion. The Beach House resident hairdresser Shelby has given her a nice haircut too!
Terri has recently been successful in applying for CAP funding for daily living activities. Rocky Bay staff are really positive about her future. Terri can build on the support she received, continuing with her healthy lifestyle and moving into shared accommodation in the independent living units.
