Life after brain injury

After sustaining a brain injury, Sharon joined us at Maeres House with the goal of becoming independent again. Her brain injury left Sharon non-verbal and unable to complete daily tasks; she was lacking independence and confidence.

Kayley Sharp, Service Manager at Maeres House, said, “When Sharon first came to Maeres House she was a very shy and timid person who lacked a lot of confidence due to being non-verbal. It was felt Sharon’s confidence was impacting on her rehabilitation and her willingness to engage in her therapies.”

At the beginning, Sharon required a lot of support from our team. This could range from support with her medication, completing domestic tasks and personal care to physio and accessing the community. After a couple of years of consistent hard work, Sharon has made incredible progress.

Throughout her stay with us, Sharon has been showing continuous development and progression. She is now able to do a lot more for herself, her motivation and dedication helps her to complete tasks that in the past she had difficulties with. For example, making her own bed and hoovering.

Since doing this, there have been improvements in her health and confidence, and she is seen to be a lot happier. Her family have noted on many occasions how pleased they are with the support she receives at Maeres House.

Kayley added, “As a team it has been lovely to watch Sharon grow in confidence and self-esteem but our most favourite part is being able to witness her personality and the banter that she has with staff on a daily basis.”

Sharon is on her road to recovery and our team are supporting her every step of the way. Kayley says, “Sharon’s journey has been similar to a caterpillar that flourishes into a beautiful butterfly!”
