Friendship clubs and social support groups provide a safe environment for people living with dementia to socialise, remain active in the community and maintain relationships.
An important aspect of the groups is that members have input into activities to ensure a sense of belonging and ownership.
An Alzheimer’s WA staff member meets with all new members to find out their interests before they commence a group. As well as providing benefits for those living with dementia, our services also allow carers and loved ones some time to themselves.
We work closely with you to understand your situation and provide the quality support that you need.
These groups are available through Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), Home Care Packages, National Disability Insurance Scheme. Or can be self-funded on a private basis if you have reached your Government assistance level or are not eligible for assistance. You do not need a referral and there is no waiting list.
This service is available in metropolitan and some regional centres.
