     “Aidacare recently had the pleasure of partnering with Emma Gee for Stroke Week 2023. Emma captured the hearts of many therapists and staff members with her lived experience insight into navigating the world of assistive technology as a stroke survivor. Emma really challenged all attendees to ‘bounce higher’ with their service delivery with her powerful messages. It was a pleasure working with Emma as we fight stroke together!”

    “Not only is Emma an absolute joy to work with but her unique journey and insights are the most inspirational to learn about, both personally and professionally. I’ve engaged with Emma on two occasions now and we will continue to collaborate in the future. My speech pathology team were lucky enough to hear Emma speak and they left feeling so empowered to approach their clinical work with a new found perspective and, practise our mission with even more precision and understanding; ‘to empower every person to reach their full potential’. Emma highlights her rehabilitation journey following stroke and the critical impact that holistic and functional approaches to care made to her outcomes. Emma is a true inspiration to all and encapsulates, so beautifully in her words that; ‘it’s not what happens in life that matters, it’s how you choose to deal with it’. I can’t recommend Emma more highly for your next professional event! An absolute icon!”
