  • My wife had a stroke 3years ago.
    She is 58 years old.
    She has limited movement on her right side and cannot speak.
    Due to lack of activity she is putting on weight and finding it more difficult to move around.
    I am on discovery medical aid comprehensive plan.
    I thought that some kind of hydrotherapy may help and noticed that you have a pool facility.
    Do you offer hydrotherapy for her condition?

She is handicapped and has one leg so her wheel chair was transported with her to ER via ambulance. When she was released her wheel chair was missing and she was sent home with out it. She had a stroke and was confused. The staff were contacted twice more and the wheel chair was not found or returned .
