Brian's Story - Youngcare
Reference from Youngcare;
Bendtech has suppported Youngcare for many years through the provision of much needed equipment for the Wooloowin Share House and the Youngcare Wesley Mission Queensland Apartments at Coomera. We were thrilled to support such a worthy cause and will continue to do so with their current development in Albany Creeek.
Just over a year ago Brian was facing an uncertain future, now he's celebrating every part of his young life at the Youngcare Wooloowin Share House.
At 23 years of age, Brian was on his way home from serving with the Australian Navy in Iraq. While stopping in Goa, he suffered a brain injury as a result of a cigar laced with poisonous substance. Unable to walk or talk, Brian required 24 hour care and his family was left with no choice but to place him in aged care where he stayed for 11 long and lonely years. Surrounded by elderly patients, this was no place for a young larrikin with a bright future.
After receiving a Home Soon Grant from Youngcare, Brian was offered a room in the Youngcare Share House at Wooloowin and is now living the young life he deserves with choice and dignity. He can do a lot of the things he once enjoyed like going to concerts and the footy and having a beer at the local with his mates.
