 Brian’s Story 

Brian, aged 23, was a serving member of the Australian Navy who had been deployed in Iraq. At the end of this deployment Brian’s naval ship, stopped in India. Whilst on shore leave, Brian’s life changed profoundly – his cigar was spiked resulting in a traumatic brain injury. Brian spent 11 long and lonely years in a Brisbane hospital. During this chapter of Brian’s life, he was non-verbal, eating a soft diet only, taking daily enemas, bathing on a shower table and sedated every evening.

Thankfully Brian found a place to call home at the Youngcare Share House in Wooloowin.

“Brian has come alive again and has thrived. For so many years my brother had all of his decisions made for him – now he’s living his life to the full, making new friends and being a part of everything.” – Brian’s sister, Tash Sharp

 Trina’s Story 

From being a highly regarded medical scientist working on Queensland’s Gold Coast to a patient in an aged care facility, Trina Stewart hasn’t had it easy. At just 46, Trina suffered an accident resulting in an acquired brain injury. This left her paralysed on the left side of her body and requiring a wheelchair. After four months in hospital, she found herself living a lonely existence in an aged care facility in Brisbane.

“I went from being a scientist working on immunotherapy to fight breast cancer to a place where there was very little stimulus; it was miserable.” – Trina.

Her path took a turn for the better when she “won the lottery”, receiving a Youngcare Home Soon grant which allowed her to move into Youngcare’s Wooloowin Share House in Brisbane with three other young people with high care needs.
