Shepparton SCI Regional Network Meeting - November 2018
In November, the Shepparton SCI Regional Network welcomed Jan, Manager of Mooroopna Education and Activity Centre (MEAC), to the Peppermill Inn to learn about their exciting community activities program. MEAC offers a variety of interesting and low cost accessible community activities including exercise classes, short courses such as computer skills, Men's Shed, cooking, and art classes!
Jan also offered great insight in her last role as Patient and Community Liaison Officer with GV Health. The Network was encouraged to continue educating the wider community, including hospitals, about the healthcare needs of people living with a spinal cord injury. Everyone agreed that through persistence, patience and advocacy, community services can learn to better understand and accommodate the needs of people living with a disability.
The group enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Peppermill while discussing future activities for 2019, one of which may be a community activity with MEAC. Well wishes were also given to one of the members of the group who will be attending his first International Wheelchair Golf Open in Spain! Everyone is looking forward to hearing about his experience when the Shepparton SCI Regional Network resumes next year.
Wishing everyone safe and enjoyable Happy Holidays!
