Case Study

CARECHOICE CASE STUDY: KEVIN

Kevin has faced many challenges in his 46 years. Diagnosed with Chronic Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 3, and later Crohn’s Disease, he stopped walking when he was just 9. An attempt to fit him with artificial hips and legs in his teens did not go to plan and he has been wheelchair bound ever since.

Kevin’s parents looked after and modified their house to have wheelchair ramps and an accessible bathroom. They received help from the local council three days per week for 18 years, but by the time Kevin was in his 30s they were getting older and decided they needed extra professional assistance.
