On Friday evening I was offered the privilege of attending a garden party put on by Greystanes disability services to say "Thankyou" to the local community for their support. The event hosted several dignitaries and upstanding members of the local community including the Federal Member for Macquarie, Louise Markus, the State Member Rosa Sage and Blue Mountains Mayor Councellor Myles.
Although the event was susposed to be thanking the community, the community couldn't be held back in their thanks for the fantastic work the Greystanes has done. The centre at Leura provides services and support to people with intellectual disabilities and complex health care needs and to their families. They provide accommodation services in the Blue Mountains and Penrith with a day options program in Leura and Katoomba.
Of particular commendation was the Megalong Positioning Service who custom build wheelchair seats for the individual. Their technology is at the top of the field with state of the art materials that allow for increased comfort and durability.
I would personally like to thank Greystanes for their sacrafice and commitment to helping those who would otherwise be unable to help themselves.
