An avid violin player, 85 year old Patrick, lost his hearing when he was just 10 years old and developed Glaucoma later in life, but that hasn’t stopped him.

Having played the violin since he was five years old, Patrick, who lives in Maylands, has also continued to entertain people with his violin in residential facilities, at seniors’ concerts and at his local church each week playing the violin and singing in the choir.

Senses Australia is celebrating Deafblind Awareness Week 2014 from Monday, 23 June 2014 to Sunday, 29 June 2014.  The 2014 theme for this international week is ‘we don’t need to see or hear in order to touch the world around us’.
