It’s so nice to come across stories like the below one. It really shows us how such unique disability equipment and mobility aids can bring big smiles to many families.
For many children, spending Australia Day at the beach is an ordinary occurrence.
However, for five-year-old Georgie, it was a dream come true thanks to her new beach wheelchair purchased through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Before receiving the new beach wheelchair it was difficult for Georgie who has cerebral palsy to access the beach and water.
Georgie’s Mum, Rachael couldn’t describe how happy Georgie was to be at the beach at Barwon Heads and in the water with the rest of the family.
“To say the wheelchair has been amazing would understate the difference it has made to our family this summer,” said Rachael.
“Before the NDIS, this chair would have been out of reach. Now it’s a dream come true. The beach is no longer off limits.”
With trial sites in seven locations across Australia, the NDIS is already improving the lives of more than 10,000 Australians with disability and their families. The NDIS will rollout nationally from July 2016. http://www.ndis.gov.au/
Last year we also had an amazing story from one of our customers. Sean was able to go on a family holiday to Lanzarote thanks to the Ardoo 140 mobile hoist. Himself and his whole family were given freedom to lead a more active and normal life.
