"My husband had a stroke. Everything changed at home. He felt like giving up and I was lost as to how to help him. So, I asked for WillKin’s help. My kinesiologist visited our residence twice a week. The change was immediate as he began to get stronger, balance better...and it gave me peace of mind that he was getting the help he needed."

– Sandrine, 73

"I feel much stronger now. Although it was very difficult in the beginning, my Kin and I started by setting small goals and now I am making my own monthly goals and am able to track my progress."

– James, 63
