Trips to the Goldfields Region with Simone

Image of Simone BunterThe Independent Living Centre will be heading for Esperance in October of this the year and will be bringing with us hundreds of pieces of equipment, from long handled reachers, to magnifiers, to gardening equipment; and of course our friendly and supportive staff.

We are seeking expressions of interest from anyone who feels they would like some information and advice about assistive equipment (members of the community, parents, groups, therapists, care staff, carers, and teachers). The trip is set for around the end of October 2017, so if you are interested, make sure you contact the ILC WA Country Services Team on 1300 885 886 or email country@ilc.com.au if you would like to arrange a visit. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Some examples of what we have done in our previous trips:

Our caravan has hundreds of pieces of equipment that you are welcome to trial, and if there is something in particular you have seen on the National Equipment Database, that you want to have a go with, we may be able to get a sample to bring with us as well. Please note – we don’t sell any equipment; in this way we remain a non-biased service whose primary aim is to help you decide what equipment will be most beneficial.

With our 4-wheel-drive vehicle, trailer and caravan filled with equipment, we can offer a range of services:
Community Displays
Caravan / Trailer / Table displays with hundreds of products to make life easier. Professional advice from a therapist is available. Please note: no equipment is available for purchase from the displays

Talks to Community Groups
Such as senior’s groups, Lion’s Clubs, Bowling Clubs, Carer’s Groups, HACC groups

Training / Workshops for Health Professionals / Support Staff / Education Staff.
Formal presentations, informal updates or training on specific topics

Individual Appointments
A time may be pre-booked with the therapist to discuss an individual’s needs and to ensure suitable equipment is brought for them to view / trial
