Ark's Support in Practice
Ark has been supporting Mary, 67, since she was involved in a car accident and required a tracheostomy and ventilated respiratory support. During her recovery Mary struggled with self-confidence and day to day tasks such as washing and dressing and needed support with daily duties.
Mary had become withdrawn and didn’t have the confidence to leave the house so Ark created a care package that would not just meet Mary’s clinical needs but give her social support too. Ark provides a 24/7 live in care service for Mary, supporting her with mobility, management of her medicines and personal care. Mary is now more independent and Ark is supporting her to do the things she loves – shopping and socialising with her friends.
