Disability centre open
STAGE two of Rocky Bay’s Patricia Kailis Centre in Cockburn Central was opened recently.
The disability services facility now includes an ‘aware house’ which will increase the use of advanced technology, a rehabilitation centre offering the latest therapy techniques and a dedicated children’s therapy playzone.
Stage one of the Baling Court site opened in 2011 and supports 1500 children and adults.
Stage two will help cater for the growing demand for services, with the number of people with a profound disability projected to double over the next 40 years.
