Our Communities2022 Telethon Home heads to the “Seaside”
Disability care equipment can dramatically affect the quality of life and experiences for people with a disability or people ageing or less mobile to assist with their activities of daily living.
The steps installed were the Platypus Pool Steps. These stairs have been designed to benefit the elderly, arthritic, expectant mothers, young learners or anyone who is uncomfortable with or has difficulty using traditional vertical swimming pool ladders.
The steps have been wholeheartedly embraced by the community, with the lovely feedback below coming in recently from WestSwim Lakelands:
The whole WestSwim Lakelands community is so excited too …. Our community members with a disability who access the facility has doubled – specifically due to the paramobility steps. It has been life changing for some people, who don’t have to travel long distances for their rehab, therapy and fitness
