Geoffrey Eadie was leaving a medical appointment when he was hit by a car. His head connected with the car’s windscreen.
Geoffrey sustained a traumatic brain injury with three skull fractures, significant hearing loss, fractured ribs and three fractures to his left foot.
Following his acceptance into the scheme, he was given access to intensive rehabilitation support.
Geoffrey says he has no doubt that his recovery would have taken far longer had it not have been for the scheme.
“My memory was really affected and I’ve found it very hard to concentrate, focus and read. I was depressed for a long while. I was moody and easily irritable. I have no doubt that my recovery happened due to the services and the support I’ve had. Without all the assistance, my recovery would have taken much longer.”
“The road to recovery from a TBI is long and these wonderful people do understand and help in way that makes a huge difference. My deepest gratitude goes out to all of my helpers!”
Geoffrey is slowly returning to part time work, on reduced hours, in a very supportive workplace.
