John’s story…

John’s story…

John is one of the newest residents at the Youngcare and MS Queensland Apartments at Albany Creek. John and his family’s life changed in an instant when he suffered an unexpected stroke that left him in a hospital bed for eight long months. With John’s impending fate being transferred into aged care at only 49 years old, his loving sister and mother could not stand by and let him live out his days without the independence and freedom he deserves.

They set out to find a long term and age appropriate solution for John and came across Youngcare. “I heard the wonderful news that John had been accepted into the Youngcare and MS Queensland apartments. It was the best news we had heard since his stroke,” John’s sister Maree said.

John will be able to call these apartments ‘home’ and continue his rehabilitation in an environment that is suitable for his age, have the freedom of choice, independence and dignity that we all deserve.
