Meet Greg B.

When Greg B. was bashed and left for dead on a railway platform in 1988, he was given a 5% chance of survival.
The brain injuries he sustained during a robbery gone wrong, were so serious they have confined Greg to a wheelchair for the last 30 years of his life. The men who bashed Greg got away with two dollars and five cents, and the boots Greg had on his feet that night.
Greg is now 51 years old, a die-hard Roosters supporter, and an active member of his local Sydney community. This is thanks to Greg’s mental toughness, as well as the care he receives from his Care1 support team, who are proud to give Greg – and many others like him – access to a quality of life that was once unimaginable.

Meet Janice C.

Janice C. was a keen motorcyclist back in “her day”. She rode a Honda 750 Shadow, and she loved that bike! In 2012 Janice was in a motorcycle accident on her way to the NSW country town of Young, when she sustained a catastrophic brain injury that left her unable to walk or talk.
Before her accident, Janice ran the local pub in her hometown of Murrumburrah in NSW. She was also an active member of her local community, often taking – in what turned out to be a twist of fate – disabled children out and about in the local area.
To this day, despite significant rehabilitation and care from her dedicated team of support workers and her ever-present daughter Alison, Janice can still only speak a handful of words. Some of those words include, “I love you,” which she says often to her loving daughter.
