Ben left the Royal Ryde Rehab Centre to finally return home on Thursday 22nd May 2014. This is more than 13 months since Ben’s horrible accident.
The home modifications needed to make Ben’s home compliant were largely completed in May 2014. The building work included a number of special requirements such as ramps and railings, modified bathroom facilities, regulated air conditioning, special auto doors, security systems, other electronics, etc. The logistics are currently being worked through such that Ben can operate many of these by himself.
Aranac, the building company, have done a sterling job to ensure that Ben could be home as soon as possible.
