My name is Jason Ryan I am a 51-year-old male
I have an acquired brain injury as a result of a fall when I was young.
I also have some movement difficulty as a long-term result of my fall.
I have several interests, such as fishing , travelling on the bus with my friend Peter who is a bus driver, we go out several times a week which gets me out of the boarding house where I live.
I also enjoy going out for dinner with my small group of friends and going to the Box Hill recreation centre to use the hydrotherapy pool, where I have also got to know several people.
I like to keep active as I get bored easily.
I drive a car which helps with my independence to go and do things on my own.
I have a good support worker who helps me with my goals and community interaction.
I enjoy being social and involved with people, but come across a bit reserved with people I don’t know well.
