Unsung hero

Hear from our patients

Patient Deb wants to thank Etsuko and Alice who run the Balance and Strength Group at Cairns North Community Health.

'I’ve been a diabetic all my life and had started to lose strength in my legs due to diabetic neuropathy which caused me to have a couple of tumbles.
The group sessions have been fantastic; I’ve been turning up as regular as a trooper and it’s been very beneficial. Alice and Etsuko are brilliant and very motivating. I found the program to be very inclusive and enjoyed being in a group, if we were to do it singly it just wouldn’t be the same.
I’m certain without the Balance and Strength Group I would have continued to degenerate'.
