PPNWA is a self help group of Polio survivors
in Western Australia, formed to improve the ability of members to function as
independently and with as few problems as possible as they reach a mature age.
Polio people are renowned for their
independence. In WA we try to come up with ways to maintain our own
control over what is happening to us. Many of the options we have found
in dealing with "late effects" are simple self-help methods that
can apply to anyone but may be of particular significance for polios.
At the WA Polio Clinic we have gathered a lot
of varied useful information that you can access and we are always looking
on the mailing list for newsletters or to buy our booklets, contact us at
Australian polios can ring Tessa for advice over
