Family Views

Here are some of the comments we have received from a few of the families we are working with.

 

“I think you have saved us both and I really mean that.  I am in a far better place than I have been in a very long time.  It has been mental torture for years from services that are supposed to help us.”  YM

 

“As a family we spent 6 months in the medical wilderness being fobbed off and passed around different departments with little or no help, support or guidance following our son’s traumatic brain injury.  Then we met Matrix and everything changed”.  WP

 

“Thank you so much for your time today.  Talking to you – it really helped me.”  CL

 

“Matrix has given me a massive confidence boost. I now feel I can speak up more about what my son needs!”   BR

 

I cannot thank you enough and appreciate everything you do for us.  Our world was turned upside down and we were left on an unknown path and not knowing which way to go.  Without the help and support from all of you I have no idea where our family would have ended up.”  CW

  

“I really felt listened to and you cannot know just how important that is to me. I’m sure you recall just how frustrated I have felt in living through this experience. It was so unnecessary.”  NL

  

“Thank you for your valuable help.  You have been very kind and have put us in touch with the right people.  You do wonderful work for head injured people and you understand them.”   KJW

  

” Our world fell apart the day our daughter suffered a serous brain injury.  The dedication, care and support you are giving our little girl and our family give u so much hope for the future.  You are truly amazing people and we thank you so much.”  WJ

 

“We appreciate your input into our lives .  Now things are slowly turning around for us”.   Anon

 

It is a refreshing change to speak to someone who actually ‘gets it’ and knows what I am talking about.  We have been left in limbo and despair for many years.  I cannot explain the massive difference you have made.”   AD

 

“I think I was ready for giving up – just as I found you. Thank you for saving my baby” xxxx   Anon

 

We are so happy to have found this service.  We are getting so much more help and support – more than we have had in years.”  GR

 

The therapies you provide are really beneficial and I now get time to relax which is really helping me.”   CS

 

“We can’t believe the amount of work you have done for us.  We appreciate it all”.    ANON
