A Program Designed For You
Join us for a choice of enjoyable activities - all specially adapted for people unable to attend traditional community and social programs. Whether you enjoy crafts, gardening, pets, music, meal preparation, exercise, group discussion, games, projects, outings, or special events and parties – we'll design a program to suit you.
Our Day Program team develops an Individual Service Plan in consultation with each participant and family. Daily journals help share activities and news.
Our high staff to participant ratio means that we have additional staff to help. This allows us to provide personal care such as assistance with feeding, toileting, incontinence care and one or two person transfers.
- Activation and social activities on a group and/or individual basis
- Qualified staff providing supervision and care in a safe and comfortable environment
- Assistance with daily living tasks as required

Program and Activities
The programs offered in the Day Programs are planned based on the interest and abilities of the members attending. We try to offer a large variety of programs. The programs change every 13 weeks to offer variety, and to ensure that our members’ interests are being met, and held. Most programs encourage members to socialize and interact with other members and staff, sharing their own experiences.
We offer a number of different types of programs throughout the day which will stimulate and challenge our members in different ways.
The following are the types of activities that may be offered (and have been offered in the past) during a day at the centre:
Cognitive: Programs that include discussion, thinking and learning activities.
Music: Programs that include a significant musical component.
Physical: Programs that get us moving. Exercises are done daily.
Creative: Programs that provide an opportunity for members to express themselves through the arts.
Purposeful: Programs that include a variety of household tasks – members help us keep the centre going through these activities and feel good because they were able to help.
