We have been supporting Leah since December 2022. She was referred to Matilda after contracting spinal TB. Leah is 39 and having to re-learn how to sit, stand and walk, and we are so pleased to say that she has now learnt to sit and stand.
Matilda said, “We visited Leah and set her exercises to help her strength her muscles. Key exercises included lifting her bum, lifting her legs, learning to pull herself up on her own and standing. We are now working on her walking with assistance until she has the strength and the confidence to walk on her own again.”
To help in her efforts, we have made Leah a standing frame to give her additional support.
