Initially admitted to Salisbury District Hospital in April 2016, having survived a complication from an advanced stage of diabetes, Gary could not remember the 48 hours prior to waking up in hospital. At that time he was unable to speak or to move and it wasn’t clear what his prospects were for recovery.

However within three weeks, miraculously (according to Gary) he began to speak again and although he had lost a lot of muscle tone, he was able to mobilise again.

Gary was admitted to Glenside in May for short-term intensive rehabilitation, after his partner who had done some online research discussed the possibility with the SDH team of a referral to Glenside as a local specialist provider of neuro rehabilitation.

Congratulations to the Old Vicarage staff team

Congratulations to the Old Vicarage staff team for winning two Star Service for Excellence Awards.

Binny Dixey, Rehab Assistant on Old Vicarage, was awarded the Star Service for Excellence Award in September. She was nominated by another member of staff for “her exceptional work with a patient with very difficult behaviours. Her person centred approach has really worked wonders.”

This is following the Old Vicarage staff team as a whole being awarded the Star Service for Excellence Award earlier in the year for receiving so many compliments from best interest assessors, commissioners, advocates and family members to highlight the level of expertise in managing extremely challenging behaviours in such a least restrictive, robust and well thought out manner.
