The Southern Highlands Parkinson’s Support Group convenor was a Parkinson’s carer of 28 years for her late husband, Rod.

Mrs Irwin will convene a forum this Friday on the need for a nurse who specialises in neurological care to be based in the local area.

The forum will be hosted with the Macarthur and Goulburn Parkinson’s support groups and the Stroke Southern Highlands Support Group.

A neurological nurse specialist could care for stroke and multiple sclerosis patients as well as those with Parkinson’s, Mrs Irwin said.

Wollongong, Nowra and the Eurobodalla shire had dedicated neurological nurses, but there were none “from Campbelltown to Yass”, she said

“There’s never been a nurse up here,” Mrs Irwin said. “All we’ve had is a talk.”

President of the Eurobodalla Parkinson’s Support Group, Betty Byrn, also a spousal carer, had acquired the shire’s nurse after leading intensive lobbying.

Mrs Irwin hoped to achieve the same by showing health administrators and carers how a local nurse specialist could ease suffering and save health spending.

A “dual-discipline” neurological nurse specialist would be a patient’s first contact and liaison, through home-based care, for allied health services.

In effect, the nurse would be a case manager between patients and a range of therapists for speech, neurology, movement, and GPs and pharmacists.

They would help support and educate “the unpaid carers as well as help support self-care and preserve patients’ sense of wellbeing,” Mrs Irwin said.

Such primary intervention would delay or negate the need for hospital admissions, which Mrs Irwin said often had poor outcomes for neurological-needs patients.

Timing of medications was a particular challenge, even under hospital care; administered incorrectly, there were “shocking side-effects,” Mrs Irwin said.

The combined challenges of medications, dressing and transport also made lengthy travel to see a nurse specialist “a physical hardship”, she said.

The forum is September 18, 10.30am to noon, at Mittagong RSL Club on Bessemer St.

RSVP asap to Mrs Irwin on 4869 5252.

The local beauty salon was awarded NSW State Salon of the Year to recognise the Bowral team’s outstanding performance and commitment to the Ella Bache brand.

The ELLA awards ceremony is the focal point of Ella Bache’s annual calendar and rewards excellence in all aspects of beauty therapy and small business.

The award was presented to the Bowral team by CEO Pippa Hallas, sales and marketing director Michael Knox and the evening’s MC and special guest Corinne Grant.

Ella Bache Bowral salon owner Merilyn Knight, who came on board as salon owner with her husband Ian in 2009, said she felt her team’s success came down to their focus on “the customer and the whole Ella Bache experience”.

Mrs Knight said she was extremely honoured to have her and her team’s work recognised at such a high level.

“The team is earnestly grateful for the recognition for the hard work and commitment for 2015,” she said. “They really deserve the recognition from Ella Bache.”

This is the third year in a row that Ella Bache Bowral has been awarded at a state and national level.

In 2013 Ella Bache Bowral took out State Therapist of the Year, and the national award for Franchisee of the Year.

Then in 2014 the store was awarded State Salon Manager Trainer of the Year and State Salon of the Year.

To follow these awards up with another win this year was an achievement in itself.

“Kylee was also a finalist for this year’s State Salon Manager Trainer of the Year again,” Mrs Knight.

“As well as our success in the ELLA awards, we really appreciate the loyalty of our clients.”

Volunteers and residents enjoy a Halloween Party. Photo suppliedAN organisation in the Southern Highlands is looking for volunteers for a few hours each week to provide a range of support to its clients.
Nanjing Night Net

This organisation provides support both in the homes of the clients and at their centre.

The following positions are available:

o Someone who has a flare for arts and crafts: simply bring your passion for your hobby for one-to-two hours a week. All that is required is someone who has an understanding of the limitations of the clients and can see the value in sharing with people who have a disability.

o Companion for a female resident: an hour a week is all you need to provide time with a lady in her 50s to go for a walk or outings, particularly having a coffee and a chat.

o Computer tutor: If you have basic computer skills particularly Microsoft Word, a resident working on story writing would love to have your assistance at a time flexible to you.

o Advocate: This is an interesting task which requires a day a month (can be two half days) to be the advocate on behalf of resident clients to the management committee. It requires someone who preferably has a background in disability services, who is able to relate with and to people with disability and has an interest in their wellbeing.

Volunteering is a great way to meet others while feeling good about yourself. There are many studies indicating that volunteering is good for your health as well as adding to the social good.

If you are sitting at home reading this and thinking any of these tasks would suit you, please get in touch with Helen, Jackie, Sandy, Barry, Vanessa or Bea at the Wingecarribee Volunteer Centre now on 4869 4617 or email [email protected]论坛 for more details. Alternatively drop into the Centre at Queen Street, Moss Vale and talk to the friendly and experienced staff.

Unnecessary drivel: letter

Comments Off on Unnecessary drivel: letter

Letter to the editor.Re “Community expresses rail concerns” (SHN September 9):
Nanjing Night Net

Ms Fisk “questioned who would maintain and upgrade the railway lines”? Boral, ARTC and Transport NSW maintain parts of the railway lines in question and charge an access fee for this purpose. It is based on per tonne/kilometres, unlike trucks who only pay annual or monthly charges regardless of how many tonne/kilometres they run.

These trains will not be any heavier or longer than the current trains that Glencore … or Centennial Coal [run]. Yes, there would be an increased maintenance task, but that’s what the access charges are for. The “44-cart trains” would be the same length as the 45-wagon trains currently run from Glencore’s Tahmoor colliery.

I agree 100 per cent with Mr Duncan that there would be no impact on safety. How can an increase in volume of trains decrease safety?

To say that “passenger trains will always take priority over our trains”, the majority of the trip will be on the line through Robertson, which only sees the Cockatoo Run train every now and then.

Mr Robertson comments: “The worst case scenario would be two trains crossing over about once every hour. This could close off the Illawarra Highway for about 15 minutes at peak times”.

The crossing loop (passing siding) at Robertson isn’t long enough for two coal trains to pass there so the crossing wouldn’t be affected for longer than a few minutes while the train passes. When there is a big wheat harvest and up to 10 wheat trains running each way each day through Robertson and the passing siding, will Mr Robertson be complaining and getting those trains stopped?

Finally, the line through Robertson can see up to 20 trains each way a day when track work causes trains to be diverted from the Illawarra line and about the same during a big wheat harvest.

Perhaps Ms Fisk and Mr Robertson should be joining the push for the Maldon to Dombarton rail line to be completed, which might be able to be used by these trains?

I wonder if they have considered the alternative could be to road haul the coal, which would be 160 B-double trucks each way a day on Picton Rd.
