Rachael's story

Rachael* has struggled with her mobility and issues with her hip since first coming to The Vines. This at times makes it difficult for Rachael to move around our home and has caused her fitness levels to decline. To help improve this, a specialist fitness instructor trained in physical rehabilitation and fitness following brain injuries, has been visiting Rachael once a week.
Rachael began by struggling to pull the resistant bands and throw a ball to fellow residents. After several sessions, Rachael is now able to throw the ball with ease and celebrates the end of each session with a dance to her favourite Elvis Presley song. Rachael’s progress has been apparent to all staff and has earned her several medals on our celebration wall for achieving her goals. Rachael tells staff that the fitness sessions are ‘lovely’ and that she very much enjoys the progress she has been making.
