Disabled accommodation "to die for"

As a person with MS (pwMS) who is only ever moved around by hoist/sling this picture says more than a great many words. Yes, I kid you not, the bedroom has a hoist-track in the ceiling. This is the Sargood Resort at Collaroy in NSW.

This post on the Have Wheelchair Will Travel blog says more, without me having to type (!) but a very important point, that I did not understand, is that the funding arrangements are such that all this beauty is only available to you if you have a spinal injury.

So don't take "to die for" literally - simply break your back.

I will leave it to Delia Gray, general manager at Royal Rehab in Sydney (who I wrote about in 2013) to say more in her up-coming Guest Post. Please consider this an introduction to her.

  1. I remember as a child (50s) that this site was a 'hospital' for kids with polio. In the forties, my mother was Arkela there for a cub pack of boys who were strung up in giant plaster casts for months at a time. It is so good to know that such a historic, spectacular beach side location has been saved from developers. https://www.domain.com.au/news/community-saves-prime-beachfront-hospital-site-in-collaroy-from-developers-clutches-20170315-guxm7s/
