Kim has three children that all benefit from specialist care. That could mean days spent driving between different locations, Royal Far West can provide the care she needs in one place.
Kim wasn’t even sure where her nearest pediatrician was. She described the first time she came to Manly as “A really full-on week.” But she was able to get her daughter, Ella the specialist healthcare she needed.
In the years since that first week, Kim has brought her other children Isla and Liam to Manly for help.
“Liam was born 16 weeks premature. His needs meant taking him to a lot of different specialists in different locations.”
Since the kids reached school age, Royal Far West has worked with the local school to ensure they get the support they need in their hometown of Portland in the State’s Central West.
Kim didn’t know what to expect in the early days. But like many mums and dads in rural and remote communities, she had a friend who had brought their child to Royal Far West and was able to benefit from their advice.
Because Royal Far West values the privacy of our clients and their families, we have changed the names of the people in this case study.
