Concentric Rehabilitation – George's Story

3rd May 2019 | 1 min video

Opal Cardinal Freeman was one of the first residential aged care homes to offer specialised physiotherapy and exercise. George is one resident who is already experiencing the benefits. George had a stroke almost four years ago, which left him in a wheelchair. When the Concentric Rehabilitation Centre opened, George attended the open day with his wife Christine. The centre’s team of highly qualified physiotherapists quickly identified that he had some leg strength, and put together a tailored physiotherapy program to help him regain the ability to stand out of the wheelchair and transfer into the car. After three months of working with the physiotherapists, George is able to do exactly that – have a watch!
