Tarsem’s Story

I didn’t foresee some of the challenges that I had to face upon returning to work and my support team helped me to feel confident and prepared.

"Appointments with clinicians would leave me overwhelmed by all the information regarding my treatment and recovery plan. I wasn’t sure what was the best option for me. It was from this point on, where I began to lean on Reframe. Having the opportunity to regularly speak to a nurse specialist was just what I needed. Someone at my side to simplify the information, advise me on my recovery options and help me to see things in a different perspective. Following my treatment, I found myself needing the toilet more frequently and often had to explain my situation to complete strangers. I could no longer be spontaneous and had to plan ahead for facilities. Fortunately, Reframe proactively sourced a radar key so I could access public toilets immediately and reassured me to take back control. This was one of the biggest impacts that they had on my recovery. It made a real difference to me and helped me to continue living my life as I did before. I was more confident to go out in public knowing that I had a solution should I need one. They reminded me that I should come first and that I’m not alone. The on-going support and guidance has ensured that my recovery plan focuses on my personal goals. I am in a much better place thanks to the support team at Reframe."
