Fully personalised home care support
Tom and Peter are a wonderful example of the benefits of a carefully considered live-in partnership. “I’ve always been active,” says Tom, “and Peter is good motivation”. Peter nods in agreement: “We all need a little push sometimes.” Improving his stamina is Tom’s continuous goal, and Peter has been fully trained by Tom’s physiotherapist to support his exercise regime with a moving and handling belt. Having clicked so well with Tom over the last two years, he continually works alongside him to develop new exercises and techniques which promote muscle definition.
When Tom isn’t in the gym, he’s in the pool, and it’s easy for Peter to see why he loves it: Tom, who normally gets around in a wheelchair, is able to walk in the water. “It helps him balance and triggers his muscles,” smiles Peter. It’s Tom’s goal to one day walk again unaided, and with Peter’s help, he is moving closer every day.
