One of our truly inspiring Care in the Home clients recently spoke to The Daily Mail about what it's like living with locked in syndrome.
Samantha, Operations Director for the South Region says "Shirley has detailed what it's like to live with locked in syndrome, a condition many know little about, and how her life completely changed one day. She finds joy in everything and her sense of humour remains intact. Shirley talks about her relationship with her care team and how she's even managed to complete a further two degrees.
