Darryl lives life his way

Darryl, 68, lives on a property at Amamoor. He’s a country bloke, heart and soul. He loves his farm, his truck and travelling around Australia with his mates. Darryl has some health issues but is determined not to let that stop him doing things the way he wants.

With a Home Care Package and support from Centacare, Darryl is able to continue living the life he loves on his farm.

Centacare supports Darryl with allied health services, delivered meals, cleaning and hospital appointments. When Darryl needed two knee replacements, Centacare organised special knee braces for him.

For many years, Centacare helped Darryl look after his best friend – his 65kg bull mastiff, Harold. Harold recently passed away at the age of 14, well beyond his breed’s average life span of eight years.

Knowing how important a best friend is in life, Centacare helped Darryl look after Harold, including taking him to his vet appointments in Gympie. Funding through a Home Care Package meant Centacare could also provide dog walking services, feeding and trips to the groomers.
