Dante experienced a spinal cord injury just 7 months ago and is still in rehab. The close knit family is going through a huge transition, trying to adapt to house moves and coming together to support each other though the massive changes that come with a life changing injury.
As Dante is aged over 65 when he incurred his injury, he is not eligible to be covered by any insurance that would help towards his stay. So the Sargood Foundation were able to assist Dante and his family to stay at Sargood on Collaroy in May, under our Accommodation grant scheme.
A short break at Sargood was the first family outing in 7 months and enabled Dante and his wife Gloria to enjoy a few days together with their daughter, her partner and their beloved grandson
Sometimes it’s not the big things that make a difference but the chance to spend time together as a family and enjoy the comforts of Sargood which can provide a welcome break from the struggles of everyday life
