What the Service Offers

Social Support Group operates in the Active Lifestyle Centre and provides activities to frail older people, designed to develop, maintain or support the capacity for independent living and social interaction, which are conducted in a day centre setting.

Active Lifestyle Centre includes group excursions / activities conducted by centre staff, in and out of the centre.

These services involve a structured program and may include such activities as:

  • music therapy
  • allied health care
  • outings and day trip
  • personal care (e.g. assistance with toileting)
  • provision of a meal and assistance with eating
  • provision of transport to and from centre-based care
  • communication with carers where appropriate

Carers, if any, will receive a break from their usual caring relationship.

Social Outings

If you are becoming house bound and tired of watching television etc, we hold on average of two social outings on Mondays, each month. They are usually held on a Monday. We pick you up from home and drop you home when the outing is over.
