An ARRCS client with an advanced diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease was afraid he would not be able to communicate with his family or complete his studies, before the ARRCS team stepped in to help.
After the client had expressed he was frustrated with not being able to communicate verbally or with a computer due to his illness, the team from Community Care Darwin discussed and completed an assessment and care plan to purchase an iPad.
Through the use of the device, he was able to Skype his family and connect to the internet.
As a result of the new technology, the client’s quality of life has improved and he is able to continue his love of study and continue interactions with his family.
