Care and support in the community

Our social support program provides opportunities for individuals to make and maintain social networks when circumstances limit their ability to get together with friends, travel, or drive a car.

Experts say those who enjoy an active social life often extend their lives by years.

There are an abundance of benefits for socialising other than life extension; stress reduction, a feeling of importance, and a feeling of high self esteem are just a few of the benefits. Getting out and socialising with others is the best medicine we can take in order to live a fulfilled life in our senior years.

Social support can be individually tailored to suit. We can bring a friend or two to visit you or take you to visit someone else, or arrange to meet friends at your chosen venue, and we have a range of regular activities including:

  • Morning Tea Outings: Half day bus trips on the last Friday of every month
  • Big Day Out: Full day outings 3 times a year
  • Local Socials: Lunch in a private home with a small group of people
  • Share a Cuppa: Small groups having a cuppa either in private homes or in local cafes
  • Men’s Group: Social networking for men
