Big numbers delivers big success!
With over 108,000 hours of Health & Wellness services provided to almost 3,000 clients across SA & NT last financial year, Southern Cross Care’s clients are proving inspiration to other older people.
In early 2020, Carmelite Health & Wellness Centre client Kay Turner was referred to the Short-Term Restorative Care program to access targeted 1-on-1 therapy for her Parkinson's Disease to improve her health and wellbeing.
Having completed the eight-week program (which consisted of exercise, physiotherapy and massage therapy), she has shown excellent improvements in her walking, balance and strength.
Kay is now feeling more capable in maintaining her independence at home and plans to continue accessing services to maintain the improvement.
She regularly uses HUR equipment at the Carmelite Centre, and is a great example of Southern Cross Care’s Better for life approach.
It encourages people to thrive and to be their healthiest, so they can pursue the activities they enjoy. It also embraces the life of each person and the journey that has brought them to Southern Cross Care.
Another inspiring story is Carmelite client Margaret Lavars.Margaret has been consistently attending rehabilitation at Carmelite Health & Wellness Centre since her hip replacement surgery in October last year
She has credited her amazing recovery to her Allied Health treatment.
“Exercise has helped me in so many ways. I was using a walker up until recently because my mobility had decreased after the surgery,” Margaret said.
"Since engaging in exercises, I have improved my strength and confidence in my ability to walk. I do not need to rely on my walker now.”
As a regular client, Margaret is a friendly face at Carmelite and has access to a variety of services including Exercise Physiology, Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Massage Therapy. Margaret is grateful for the friendly staff and incredible HUR equipment available at Carmelite for helping her achieve her goals of improving walking mobility, lower limb strength, and balance.
