I would like to say a sincere thank you to physio Tom. My partner Gareth is a young man with a severe brain injury. Gareth came home in October 2021 and has since been having weekly home visits from Tom. Gareth has a large home care package. There are times we have felt out of our depth as there aren’t many people around us with brain injury experience. Tom has felt like a light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Tom has helped get Gareth from tolerating just 2-3 hours in his wheelchair a day, to a hopeful young man that stands daily, practices sitting balance and is now regaining slight movement in his left side.

Tom is great at adapting his approach based on who he is speaking to. He instinctually know how to influence the people around Gareth to help him reach his potential. He is professional, knowledgeable and approachable. When Tom walks through the door I feel relief. He has been a physio, a teacher and a shoulder to lean on and offload.

We were given a negative outlook when we left the previous rehab, but MOTIONrehab helped us see the possible, when all everyone else spoke about was how things seemed impossible. Everyone needs a physio like Tom. When asked to add something, Gareth summarises perfectly – “Tom you’re a good guy”.
