Kimberley Wade started music therapy with my mother late May 2012.

Mum was very opposed to such therapy even though she had very limited vocabulary since sustaining a stroke back in March 2011. Mum has severe Aphasia and severe Apraxia and was very self-conscious of this when people she was unfamiliar with were around.

With a great deal of patience, enthusiasm and encouragement Kimberley showed, mum slowly let Kimberley into her world.

Mum as well as the rest of the family are grateful to Kimberley for the time she has spent with mum, coupled with the amazing improvements mum has made with Music Therapy, as communicating verbally has become a lot easier and cleared for all concerned.

It has now got to the stage in Mum's rehabilitation that Kimberley's Music Therapy is mum's highlight of the week.
