Case studies

Mrs P, 51 years old

Mrs P was admitted with a stroke. On discharge she was supported by the therapy team for nine months with varying intensity until she was able to self-manage her own rehabilitation. She was supported to assess local services such as the gym and support groups within North Somerset. She had access to the stroke specialist nurse who continues to support her and complete regular reviews.

 

Mr Q, 61 years old

Mr Q was diagnosed with a life-limiting progressive neurological condition. The Community Neuro Service worked with him and his family from diagnosis to end of life. They helped to support him and his family as his condition affected his life and what he was able to do. They provided equipment and advice as well as coordinating other services to allow him to stay as independent as possible with a focus on quality of life.
