Laurie is part of the BallyCara family through his participation in the Short Term Restorative Care(STRC) Program. This is an 8 week program which helps to slow or reverse functional decline in people aged 65 and above.
Laurie joined the program to help him achieve his goal – to return to the bowling green!
Laurie hadn’t bowled since he had a fall last year which often happens after such events, health can decline fairly quickly.
Laurie’s STRC journey has been provided by BallyCara with the assistance of PHN – Primary Health Network, Wesley Mission and Lifetec. Over the 8 week period the intensive program has been delivered by a team consisting of an Occupational Therapist, Physio, Exercise Physiologist, Support Worker and GP.
Laurie has made wonderful gains in his health and he is now confident and capable of returning to the bowling green.
From everyone at BallyCara – Congratulation’s Laurie, we look forward to seeing you on the bowling green!
