In honour of the late John Lewis, Cumberland View Aged Care continued his wonderful work in helping ones with Parkinson’s and held his Milk Shake fundraiser. The event raised $245. John established the event and was very proud of it. It was a permanent fixture on the annual event calendar.
John started up a Parkinson’s Support Group within the home having the condition himself (and also his wife). It was a way of bringing sufferers together and supporting each other. He organised guest speakers and explained the condition to staff so they could better treat people.
