Name: Linda Fudge
Client challenges: Parkinson’s and reduced mobility
Solution: Rotoflex 200 rotational bed for one person
Rotoflex bed helps determined retired RAF Nurse with Parkinson’s to remain at home
Linda Fudge, 69 from Barton on Sea, Hampshire, is a charming lady who lives independently despite having Parkinson’s. She is fully determined to remain at home and avoid relocation into residential care. To ensure her preferred lifestyle is maintained as long as possible, Linda has acquired a Rotoflex from Theraposture which is the original and proven rotational bed.
Before retirement, Linda was a qualified nurse and served in the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service (PMRAFNS) for nearly 30 years. She originally intended to be a Policewoman but due to a slight speech impediment her application was declined.
Hence Linda pursued a carer in nursing and midwifery which led to service in the PMRAFNS and deployment around the world. She was finally stationed as Matron at Headley Court and cared for many injured service personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Now living with the effects of Parkinson’s Linda requires assistive equipment to remain mobile – her new Rotoflex is a vital solution for safe access in and out of bed.
