In February 2022, my husband Michael had a life-changing stroke. It affected him in such a huge way that he could not see any light at the end of the tunnel and lost all confidence. His motor skills and memory recall were a new and constant struggle for us all. Michael could not understand why, in only a short amount of time, he had gone from being a very sharp Electrician who could deal with literally any complication in his area of expertise, to someone who struggled to walk up the stairs or remember why he was in another room.

I could not let my husband sit and continue to descend into a vegetative state. He had all but given up. I was determined not to do the same. I turned to so many people for help, only to get the door closed in my face or not be given the answers and support we needed. My family wanted our husband, father and brother back again. We believed in him and we wanted others to do the same.

A very special friend at my workplace could see I was in so much distress trying to find a solution for Michael. She was the amazing individual who led us to Brain Abilitiez. We are truly grateful for this.

Our journey with Brain Abilitiez began in May 2022. The individual program that was designed for Michael was amazing and so personal- we knew he was being treated as a person, rather than just another number or box to tick. Michael did undoubtedly struggle on some days but he still had the motivation to get up and try with the support from Brain Abilitiez. They gave him the never-ending encouragement to continue fighting, in a caring and safe environment. The staff are all so dedicated and passionate about their work and I soon began to see this positively impact Michael’s development.

Sadly, Michael passed away in early August 2022, at a great loss to so many of us. My family and I want Michael's Memory to live on and are trying to raise funds to help others who have suffered a stroke rebuild their memory through a brain training program. We hope Michael’s experience will help inspire people to donate what they can to ensure that others, who might otherwise not be able to afford such a program, get the help they need.

The training program at Brain Abilitiez helps people improve their memory with trusted, well-researched methods. This means that they can live a better, more independent, lives and regain a sense of dignity and self-worth that stroke victims often feel they have lost out on. Michael would have been so happy knowing that he is now helping others in similar circumstances to him and we hope his memory will live on in the brilliant fundraising efforts, here.

If you would like more information about the program that has been set up, please visit for full details on "Michaels Memory" which may be found under "Our Services".

Thank you all in advance for your continued support.
