Professional Training Programs have begun for 2017!


Thanks to all the therapists that attended our first round of
Professional Training Programs for the year. We had a great turn out and it
was lovely to see some new faces! 

What people are saying:

" Thank you for great session. Felt really energized and excited after the session. Nice small group, wheelchair transfer into the car was valuable and appreciated the sandwiches/snacks provided. Felt like it was also a bit of a refresher in wheelchair prescription which boosted my confidence for working with wheelchairs in future. Craig was great and lots of facts I hadn’t heard before which was interesting. Learnt a lot – thank you!"

Next month we will be hosting our second round of workshops revolving around
 the Department of Veteran Affairs. Our presenters will be covering static seating,
 electric lift recliners, aids to daily living, pressure care and comfort products, as well
as a range of other items. We will also be running through minor home modifications
 and how to make an order through The Country Care Group application.

65km for Cystic Fibrosis


This year, our very own Ben Colquhoun has joined Team Jacob for the 65km walk to raise funds in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. It is an endurance tester where participants walk 65km to help raise the much needed funds and awareness for CF. 

All proceeds go towards research at Monash Health to continue the great work they are so well known for.  Jacob is a fun loving kid who loves his balance bike, his mum and dad and his big sister, Lily. Jacob and his family are good friends of Ben's and FLM are right behind them. (We hope you will be too!) 

Support Ben as he walks with Team Jacob to raise funds in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis! 

Cystic Fibrosis affects many of the body’s systems, including the lungs and digestion. It’s a terrible condition
with no known cure……. YET! 

The walk will take place from 3:00am on the 18th of March at Princes Park and will finish up around 5:00pm. 

If you’d like to support a great cause and donate to Team Jacob click the link below to Ben’s  everydayhero support page:. We know that Ben and the team would be forever grateful for your help.
