Kerri-Anne Kennerley Brings Home Husband Eight Months After Spinal Injury

It’s been eight months since Kerri-Anne Kennerley’s husband John suffered crippling spinal injuries after a freak fall at a golf course in Coffs Harbour.

The 75 year old was discharged from hospital last week and is now back at the extensively modified house he shares with his wife. The home has had ramps added for his wheel chair, bathrooms fitted with modifications as well as cupboards stocked with catheters, bandages and lotions.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley says that her husband of 32 years can no longer be left alone because “there are 50 things that can go wrong within an hour”.


Following his fall, John Kennerley was left an “incomplete quadriplegic” after fracturing his C3 and C4 vertebrae.

The couple have enlisted the help of two nurses who will visit the house for two hours each morning and night to help care for John. “It’s the new norm and that’s the way it goes,” said Kerri-Anne. “It’s not like other health issues when you are sick, and you get diagnosed and you are treated, you have a horrible time and you are better.

This is forever, quadriplegia, paraplegia is forever. It’s a steep learning curve that I haven’t finished yet.”
