Adam’s story

13 June 2023

Meet Adam – he’s a “cheeky, loveable young man” who loves attending Jigsaw.

“Adam loves going to Jigsaw… if you were to ask Adam about Jigsaw his words are ‘I love it, I love Jigsaw’” mum Steph says.

“He also is very excited about having the new cinema room, he often asks the staff to go to the movies while he is there.”

Adam has been attending Jigsaw for almost 14 years now and has a number of life-limiting conditions.

His health deteriorated more so in 2017 where he was diagnosed with another condition called severe gut dysmotility that has left Adam now needing 24-hour care.

Steph continues: “Jigsaw has been our lifeline for our family we don’t know where we would be without their care and support. Jigsaw is the only place we have where Adam can stay for respite and overnight care because of his complex health care needs.

“When he is at Jigsaw he is well cared for and he has the best time doing the most amazing activities and having days out.

“We can relax and recharge knowing he is well looked after and having the best time.”

Steph says that “all the staff at Jigsaw our the most amazing, wonderful caring people” and they love the home-from-home atmosphere and how Adam can make lots of amazing memories.

“We call them our angels,” Steph added.
