Mr Karati is an elderly gentleman who had nine falls in his bathroom over a 3 week period. (February 2014) and was admitted to hospital after his last fall. The Occupational Therapist became concerned and approached Te Vaerua to see if we could arrange some funding to renovate the bathroom and make it safe for him and give him wheelchair access.
The Cook Foundation was approached and contributed $2,000 to the renovation.
The following report details the project and the thanks of the Te Vaerua Community Rehabilitation Service to the Cook Foundation.
