Club Stories
 
Scarborough Rotary has been distributing the above pyramids in the local community in restaurants, cafes, bars, doctors & dental surgeries in an effort to make people aware of the dangers using mobile devices while driving.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Scarborough has been working closely with Professor Andrew Whitehouse to create a greater awareness of autism in the community by holding an annual Autism Awareness Day function which seeks to bring together the research , scientific and medical specialists and those families living with autism , in a forum designed to assist families and give a greater understanding of autism .
 
The Rotary Club of Scarborough donated $5,000 in March 2017 to support 25 Indigenous children and young people across WA to participate in a program aiming to improve their reading ability. The funds were donated to Indigenous Reading Project, an Australian charity who will provide the children with iPads and access to a support program. The charity  has demonstrated measurable improvements in the reading ability of former participants in Australia, and helps to boost confidence and self esteem.

Janet McLeod was born in Northern Ireland and completed her initial nursing training in Belfast. She immigrated to Australia in 1973 continuing her nursing career and studies in Perth WA. 

In 1998, while completing a Masters Degree specialising in Parkinson’s Disease she was appointed the inaugural Parkinson’s Nurse Specialist based with Parkinson’s WA Inc . This was a Health Department funded initiative of a 1 year trial with 1 nurse looking after the entire Perth Metropolitan area. The nursing team has now grown to 8 nurses.  Janet is currently the Clinical Nurse Manager to this nursing team.

 Janet’s vision for the role included her passion for educating nurses and other health professionals caring for people with Parkinson’s. The early years included planning and presenting at 2 courses focusing on Parkinson’s facilitated by Curtin University. Education at aged care facilities, hospitals and community venues remains an integral part of the role. In 2007 she co authored Guidelines for Nursing Practice in Caring for People with Parkinson’s with Nerolie Lyle. Among other duties Janet is also involved in the production of Parkinson’s related publications used nationally.  In 2017-2018 she was very involved in the planning of and writing two themes for the soon to be launched Australian College of Nursing on line Post Graduate Certificate in Parkinson’s Care.
