Swimming in the ocean for the first time in 30 Years
Thanks to the Accessible Summer initiative at Tallebudgera, a very happy person was able to go for a swim for the first time in 30 years. Understandably, a shock to the system, but she felt right at home.
“I wanted to let you know that mum had such a great experience yesterday. She has been using a walking frame since we got home instead of her wheelchair. The experience really motivated her; although it’s difficult she’s actually using a walking frame. We’ll be back as soon as possible.”
What an amazing outcome….
“I know that years ago in the past she could walk a very short distance with the frame and assistance, I’ve not heard of her doing this for a long while. But she told me on the phone last night that she was puffed out and I asked why, and she said, “from walking from my bedroom, to the lounge room, with a walking frame.“
