James is a 15 year young man with a highly complex list of medical conditions and he is severely physically disabled. Together with the Orchards centre supporting James we received an application to purchase a specialist wheelchair top to be put on an electric base that mum can operate to move James and all his medical equipment out and about in the community.
James is unable to move himself in any purposeful way, but is able to understand conversation and respond with some yes /no sounds. It is very important for James to be able to access the community and participate in family outings. Now that James has this specialist wheelchair it has made a significant change to his and his family's lifestyle.
James' mum thanked us and told us "I cannot tell you how much easier it has made everyday life for us all."
We are happy to help James in this way and it's great to see him so happy in this photo.
