Heidelberg West man frustrated with disability support shortfall

TERRY Bainbridge was a hardworking tradie and diehard Richmond fan when, at just 47, a stroke left him with an acquired brain injury.

Mr Bainbridge’s initial prognosis was dire — one that predicted he would remain in a permanent vegetative state and live out his days in a nursing home.

Six years later and despite making huge steps towards recovery, Mr Bainbridge, of Heidelberg West, has no option other than to live in a nursing home part-time because of a simple funding issue.
