Case Summary

Three months post discharge, Mr Tannerís health has continued to improve. Happily, he passed his driving test, although his car required modifications to enable him to safely continue driving.

He still has some weakness in his right hand, which makes some tasks difficult. However, Mr Tanner has accommodated for this well and Mrs Tanner helps him with the simple tasks that his hand prevents him from completing. Mr Tanner is overjoyed that while he has difficulty holding a cup, he can still manage a bowling ball!

Mr Tanner adhered to dietary advice and has lost 5kg. He is also walking regularly and has significantly reduced his alcohol intake. He now only has one or two light beers on bowls days and otherwise doesnít drink any alcohol at all.

Mr Tannerís blood pressure is well controlled at 125/85 and his mood has improved and stabilised without medication.
