Francesco is aged 50 and in 2005 had a cerebral hemorrhage, that damaged both the motor abilities, resulting in hemiplegia, with aphasia and cognitive abilities, with aphasia, attention and body image disorders. This project aims to bring attention to the path that was made by Francesco, his family and all professionals who followed him. The hardest part of this work was the family’s acceptation of an unexpected situation, leading to a sudden new planning of life in general. Thanks to a close collaboration with the family and especially a strong motivation by Francesco, the solutions adopted granted a better quality of life for him. The main objectives of this project were the provision of aids and then the return home of Francesco, more and more the protagonist of his own choices.
