Jean O’Connor joined the Lakeside family in March 2023, immobile and unable to move unaided.
Since being at Lakeside, Jean has come on leaps and bounds, and everyone around her couldn’t be more pleased.
Sophie, a Community Physiotherapist, has been aiding Jean’s progression as well as supporting the educational development of two University of Bolton students, Michael, and Tamara. The pair study Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation.
This experience was part of the IPE (Interprofessional training), a study focussed on how students can work collaboratively with care homes to help residents achieve their goals.
Thanks to the commitment of Sophie, Michael and Tamara, Jean was able to walk the length of her bedroom using a gutter frame!
