McLean Care is pleased to announce our successful recipient of the Parkinson’s Care Scholarship pilot program. Lakwinder Kaur at our Kolora Residential Aged Care facility at Guyra won the HNECC PHN (Primary Health Network.) Parkinson’s Care Scholarship in the critical nursing category.

The PHN pilot program is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health to trial a new approach to improve the quality of life of people with movement disorders providing scholarship support for health providers and administrative staff to enhance workforce development.

It is no secret, over 93% of neurologists are located in major cities which can be challenging if you live in a regional area and surrounding communities. Lakwinder has been given this opportunity to undertake postgraduate study and professional development in the area of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder.

Alongside other health professionals Lakwinder will be confident and equipped to provide clinical care and provide support for people living with Parkinson’s Disease and their carers.
