Dr Don Gunning
As part of Don's duties at Pioneer, he has the opportunity to be the doctor who visits the beautiful Gwen Hardy Lodge at Emu Point. He says it is always a pleasure to drive out there on a Friday morning, which he does every week [holidays & duties excepting]. Gwen Hardy has just passed its 40 point accreditation test, which is a major tribute to the efforts of Sue Wise and her staff. Don deals with a wide variety of residents and their conditions, including the confused and wandering elderly in the “Dementia” unit. He finds the work can be challenging, but frequently rewarding. "It is often the little things that make the most difference for these lovely people" he often says.
