Location

  • Before coming to WLC it was a vicious circle. My condition means I have difficulty in walking so I walked less. This meant that muscles and joints stiffened so I was even less able to walk. This led to my confidence plummeting and I ended up not going out at all. WLC physio has changed all that.

  • I will never get completely better but the fitness sessions help me fight the disease physically and emotionally. My stamina has improved and my leg muscles are stronger. This means I can cope better with day to day living.

  • White Lodge Centre therapy has provided a lifeline for me after NHS services were finished.

Situation

The adults we support have permanent brain damage, Parkinson’s, MS. After a limited number of NHS sessions, it is then up to the individual to find and pay for their own treatment – despite their disability being permanent. To stay as mobile and independent as possible, highly specialist neurological therapy is needed on a long term basis. This is not only rare to find but also expensive.

Solution

No other organization within a 25 mile radius of White Lodge Centre, offers long-term physiotherapy and specialist gym sessions, all available from the one site, aimed at adults with long term neurological conditions. Individualised treatment programmes improve quality of life to those most in need. We subsidize our therapy and fitness sessions so they are accessible to all.
