Case Study

A new start

Following a serious accident to his leg, keen golfer Joshua was housebound and facing a bleak future but he then began receiving support from C.I.S (Complex Intervention Service) .

Joshua says: “Before meeting the team I couldn’t get out of bed. I was given bed exercises then gradually encouraged to do more until I was able to walk unassisted. My mood and confidence have improved so much because I can get out of bed and go outside. The other day I went to play golf with my friends. I still have hydrotherapy and ongoing physio, but I can get in the shower and up the stairs myself. I do get days when I feel low, but I bounce back.

My Rehab Assistant Karlie really understood my situation and helped so much with my mood and confidence. It was the encouragement and positive comments I received from the C.I.S team that got me going again.

“Being supported by C.I.S helped me to get back to my normal life.”


The team

Deborah Cox

Deborah Cox

CQC Registered Manager

Deborah came into the care sector 6 years ago after seeing how “good “care made a difference to her grandmother when she was diagnosed with Dementia. She is passionate about delivering care centred on a person‘s individual needs, and being able to support them to remain in their own homes. Having worked within a Reablement Service and then a Domiciliary Service, she has seen how both can have a positive impact on someone’s Mental and Physical Health. Deborah has a large family, and it goes without saying that they are very important to her, and when she is not at work she likes to spend time with them. She loves to cook for the crowd and when the sun comes out she loves the outdoor living and can do a mean BBQ.
