Library Books

The Society has a good selection of books available to take out on loan. Please ensure that you take the book to the Administration Assistant (Room 3A), to check out so that the Society can keep track of them. If you have any recommendations on books about MS, Parkinson’s or caring for people with a chronic condition, please let Annette know on or 03 366-2857 ext. 6.


Podiatry visits are the first Tuesday of the month with upcoming dates of 2 December, 3 February, 3 March and 1 April. The cost for this service is $20 a visit and is significantly subsidised by the Society for our members.
