We have a range of programs that focus on increasing older people’s awareness of healthy lifestyle options, reducing social isolation and encouraging our seniors to continue to connect and be involved with their community.
Programs for seniors
Chatty Café: Join other seniors, carers and community at one of our cafes for a cuppa and a chat and make some new friends.
Council Cabs: We can arrange for a TransitCare vehicle to take you to your nearest major shopping centre, for only $2 per person each way.
Community centres: These centres offer a range of activities for all ages and a comfortable space to meet for a cup of coffee.
Golden Game Time: The Golden Game Time activity program has been developed by a panel of Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) from our Allied Health Team to enable older people to stay active. It's offering people over 65 years the chance to “get back in the game” with a program of modified games and activities such as beach ball volleyball, walking netball, badminton and tennis.
