Cabrini acknowledges Lyle with Painting
"Retirement gave Lyle Chasemore the opportunity to use business skills as a volunteer and help community organisations. Cabrini is his local hospital and he holds it in very high regard. He has been featured in a medical training video and helped conduct patient surveys. He says these experiences have given him a greater understanding of a patient’s experience and empathy for all involved, including patients, their families, doctors, nurses and hospital staff. Lyle says; “I feel part of a community that is making a difference to patients and their families”.
This portrait was painted by Jeffrey Kelson, an artist who survived three heart attacks and was treated at Cabrini Malvern. Jeffrey has painted the portraits of 18 Cabrini volunteers who brightened his stay in hospital. We will feature one volunteer each week in the Cabrini Weekly Bulletin.
