Case 3: Mrs Alice Rowan


Mrs Alice Rowan on holiday

Mrs Alice Rowan is a 68 year old lady who collapsed by the swimming pool while at her timeshare in Lanzarote. She was admitted to the local hospital with loss of movement down her left side. Two weeks later she was flown back to the UK and admitted to her local stroke rehabilitation unit. She has had 3 months of intensive rehabilitation and in that time she has made some steady progress. However her physical ability has remained the same for the last 4 weeks and the team feel that she is unlikely to regain the ability to walk. Her husband who is fit and well is very keen to take her home to their bungalow with support as required.
