A special thanks to the Kiwan-Ward family who raised over $10,000 at their fifth Lily Day Fundraiser. Lily
Day was created in 2013 in memory of Philip Kirwan-Ward, by his wife Doris and daughter Janette.
A special thank you to Toyota WA
Toyota WA has very generously supported Silver Chain by donating a total of $100,000 towards commuter vans to assist in the work we do in the community.
This includes a vehicle to assist our staff in regional areas as well as a brand-new Toyota Hiace Commuter van.
Valued at $50,000, the new van will be used to transport clients to and from our new Integrum Aged Care+ facility in Myaree.
Capable of seating up to 10 people (subject to wheelchairs), the van has been specially modified by Wesbar Vanquip Mobilities to accommodate the needs of our clients.
It features a wheelchair lift, wheelchair tracking and anchor mounts, easy-touse steps and fold-up seats, ensuring easy boarding and exiting as well as comfortable and safe travel for all on board.
Scheduled to begin in February 2018, Integrum Aged Care+ will be an alternative, holistic primary care and community based model of care for people aged over 65 with two or more chronic conditions. A small pre-trial commenced at our Myaree clinic on Wednesday 13 September 2017.
Integrum is the Latin word for ‘complete’ and this new service will integrate all the Silver Chain services these clients are likely to need.
