Story Barossa Light And Lower North Vicky Pwd

Making choices with more autonomy

Vicky sustained paraplegia at the age of 19 and has now used a wheelchair for 26 years. The freedom of choice under the NDIS is what she is looking forward to most. She says it is important to her to be able to make her own decisions about her lifestyle and mobility issues rather than relying on a system that tells her what she can and can’t have. Vicky is hopeful that the greater options for sourcing equipment like wheelchairs and cushions will mean shorter waiting times for things that make her life better.
