Making it happen - What this means for Jim

What he does himself and with his family and friends

  • using some of his personal budget to pay for home care through an Individual Service Fund which means personal assistants come at the time he wants and the heavy jobs around the home get done
  • getting out to church
  • getting on family holidays
  • having a new cat flap put in
  • self care to minimise future strokes - finding exercise that works for him

What he organises with his health practitioner

  • rationalising his tablets
  • stopping specialty appointments
