Donna & Marnie's My Health Record for carers

"For the things I don’t remember, I have it on the screen,” said 20-year-old Marnie Clapham.

At the age of 16, Marnie – a healthy and typical teen – suffered a brain haemorrhage. She was lucky to survive and her prospects for eating, walking and even speaking were slim. Nonetheless, after years of perseverance, she achieved all milestones, and even returned to equestrian.

But Marnie will need personal, assisted care for the rest of her life. Marnie’s primary carer is her mum, Donna Sedgman.

“Care doesn’t happen in isolation. Marnie is a young person with complex care, working with multiple health providers. My Health Record can help all of us work together,” said Donna.
