I can get on with life

February 15, 2021

I wish to thank you for your physiotherapy services provided to me in my home by Nikki.
Your records will show, following my hospitalisation due to fractures in both my right pelvis and left wrist, rehabilitation commenced with your organisation. These home visits by Nikki proved invaluable to my well-being.
Prior to my fall at home, I had been caring for my husband for two years, as he slowly lost all his mobility. He sadly passed away 8 months ago. This caring experience proved to me the importance of retaining all mobility as we age. At 85 years old, I am committed to regaining my mobility, living alone independently in my home, driving my own car, and connecting with the community. My medical condition atrial fibrillation is managed by medication, however, my physio sessions require expert supervision. Nikki professionally gives me programs suitable to my age and ability.

Having lived a lifetime in sport, I am amazed that many young physiotherapists to-day – both male & female – choose to work with the elderly. Like many others, I am a goal-orientated individual.
I have been nominated to be a Torchbearer at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. If selected, my goal is to jog with the torch. This cannot happen overnight. It will require the expert guidance and professional supervision that I am already enjoying with Nikki – plus a bit of grit and determination by me.
One does not know what is ahead in life. Organisations such as yours and Allied Connect
make it possible for our aging generation to ‘get on with life’.
With sincere thanks.”
