Sweet gift of achieve­ment

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Special Report -

KELLY has just fin­ished mak­ing a clay plant holder for her sis­ter.

The Rocky Bay Mos­man Park client said her sis­ter could grow laven­der in the gift she had nearly fin­ished.

Kelly, who lives in­de­pen­dently in Bic­ton, has been at­tend­ing Rocky Bay since 1994, four years af­ter she was in a car ac­ci­dent and suf­fered an ac­quired brain in­jury.

The 46-year-old joined the Getabout pro­gram for so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties with other clients. She at­tends Rocky Bay three times a week for art classes, phys­io­ther­apy and hy­drother­apy ses­sions.

“I’ve built long-last­ing friend­ships with the car­ers here,” Kelly said.

“The ther­a­pists have al­ways been there when I’ve needed them.”
