Dom's Progress

Home » News » Dom's Progress

Many local residents will be aware that Dom Pisapia, the popular chef and manager of Cafe Cibo on Banks Parade, had a serious stroke in May 2013 and has since spent several months at the Neuro-rehibilitation Centre at Amersham.

We are delighted to announce that Dom was well enough to be discharged from Amersham just before Christmas, and has now been moved to Peterborough.

His new home is:
Eagle Wood Neurological Care Centre
Bretton Way
Peterborough
PE3 8DE

(We are advised that the best SatNav code is: PE3 8DD)

The phone number is 01733 516300.

Dom has his own room with an en suite which he is very happy about. He also has his TV and laptop all set up.

The staff at Eagle Wood are trained and specialise in helping those with brain injuries, and he is being very well cared for. Dom seems to have settled in really well, and he loves the place.

In the new year he will start Physiotherapy again. In this respect, the Centre is extremely well equipped, with its own gym and hydro-therapy pool.

Dom would like to thank everyone who kindly donated to the Dom & Silvi fund via this website in the summer, and for his birthday and Christmas cards more recently — these were delivered by his family on Christmas Eve, when they held a little party for him for his birthday.

All Haddenham residents wish Dom well, and hope that his health continues to improve in the coming months.
