Grant LOCK - "What is Really Happening in Afghanistan"

Grant Lock directed Afghanistan's largest eye care program, until he himself became blind.

He returns home to a society with its own blind spots.  He battled corruption, injustice and disadvantage in the deserts, mountains and cities of Pakistan and Afghanistan with courage and compassion.  He dug wells, built schools and helped restore the eyesight of thousands of Afghans. 

Grant is married to Janna, the woman the widows of Kabul call “Frishta” (Angel). Their twenty-four years of overseas development work followed their notable success as cattle breeders in South Australia.  Grant will bring you up-to-date on what is happening in Afghanistan, and looks forward to your questions.

 Grant is also a writer and will bring his books to the meeting if anyone is interesting in buying them.

Paul and Carmen EDSON  - 101 Home Care 

Paul will talk about how to access government services that can help the elderly stay in their own homes as long as possible.   

Unfortunately the government does not inform us about these options so we are left to do our own research.

 The presentation will include:

  • Making contact with "My Aged Care"
  • Requesting, preparing and undergoing an ACAT assessment.
  • Understanding your entitlements within the HCP (Home Care Package)
  • Self Managed and Fully Managed Care
  • Creating a Care plan
  • Implementation of services
