Neil and his family chose to apply for a personal health budget to give them greater choice and control over the care Neil received and the freedom to make personal choices around his routine and social activities.

Neil, 82, is cared for 24 hours a day in his own home by our care team after being paralysed in a road traffic accident 7 years ago. Neil enjoys motorbikes and watching the racing. He has spent many years renovating his home in Norfolk which has been adapted for his specific needs.

We became involved in Neil’s care at the start of 2019 as he wanted to change his current provider while his family were applying for a Personal Health Budget (PHB) – an agreed amount of money with which a person can plan and implement care and support for their own healthcare and wellbeing needs.
