A trip to the South West is currently being planned and will take place from the 18th to 23rd April. During this trip the ILC will be attending seniors events, giving presentations and equipment demonstrations at support groups and also setting the caravan display up in some towns. A visit to Northcliffe and Balingup has been arranged; however at this stage the other towns to be visited are still to be confirmed. The final day of the trip will be on Saturday 23rd April and we will be visiting the Balingup Small Farm Field Day which proved to be a huge success last year.
Rebecca Fenner (occupational therapist) covers the South West region for the ILC and would love to hear from anyone interested in ILC visiting your town. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a visit.
The proposed month / towns for visits in 2016 are:
April: Towns TBC once expressions of interest and requests have been received.
Planning is also now under-way for other visits to the South West region throughout 2016 with a possible trip around mid September. Expressions of interest are being sought to determine local needs and assist in the planning of these trips.
With our 4-wheel-drive vehicle, trailer and caravan filled with equipment, we can offer a range of services:
Caravan/Trailer/Table displays with hundreds of products to make life easier and to enable people to be more independent with their every day activities. 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
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.
