In November 2015 my 73 year old wife had a serious stroke that’s left her with little speech and loss of bladder and bowel control. She still remains in Queensland’s Rockhampton rehabilitation unit and a doctor has informed me that my wife will not be returning back to our home in Gladstone QLD.
So I desperately need some assistance and advice in locating facilities that can accommodate her needs in Gladstone QLD or Rockhampton QLD. I’m going on 73 myself and on oxygen 24/7 and all this worry and stress is taking its toll. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could kindly give me.
