Proudly supported by The Paul Stevenson Memorial Trust Amnesty on gear others may need By GILL ALCOCK On loan: Waiheke Health Trust occupational therapist Stephanie Hessell is asking for the return of any disability equipment people no longer need. THE WAIHEKE Health Trust is calling on residents to check their homes for any disability equip- ment they no longer need. Next week is New Zealand Occupational Therapy week and to mark the occasion the trust's two occupational therapists Wendy Burrows and Stephanie Hessell are asking for the return of any disability equipment that has been borrowed and not returned. The two therapists organise personal care and household man- agement disability equipment for people who are being discharged from hospital, or have long-term health or disability needs. Wendy says the trust owns a range of disability equipment to lend. We also help people who need equipment long term by applying to the Ministry of Health for more permanent equipment.'' The disability equipment the trust lends includes shower stools, bath-boards, raised toilet seats, chair raisers and bedside com- modes. She says the trust has a limited amount of equipment, and though most of it is accounted for there are some missing items, like a commode chair on wheels. It can be confusing for people to figure out what to do with their equipment if they no longer need it. If the equipment has been paid for by ACC or the Ministry of Health, there should be a sticker on the equipment with a phone number to arrange collection. If it belongs to the Waiheke Health Trust, there should be a sticker with Waiheke Health Trust' on it.'' The trust's equipment should be returned to the office at 5 Belgium St, behind the St John ambulance station, Ostend. For equipment with a sticker, residents should ring the number 0508 001 002 or 849 5688 to arrange collection. The trust also sells rails, tap- turners and long-handled reach- ers, and hires out wheelchairs. Wind wields furious force Ripped off: The veranda on the Hamilton Rd jewellers' shop was removed after it collapsed on the footpath in Friday's strong winds. It was fortunate there was no-one walking by when a veranda col- lapsed onto a pavement, fire chief Ron Leonard says. The veranda above the jeweller's shop window on Hamilton Rd in Surf- dale landed on the pave- ment after being ripped off during the high winds on Friday night. The volunteer fire ser- vice was called to help with the emergency. Mr Leonard says it was lucky no-one was below when it fell, because it was bloody heavy''. If anybody had been under it, it would have killed them.''
