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. We offer these groups throughout the metropolitan area and in some regional centres.
An important aspect of the groups is that members have input into club activities to ensure a sense of belonging and club ownership.
A staff member from our respite team will come and meet with new club members before they commence attending a group, so that it can be decided how needs can be met. As well as providing benefits for those living with dementia, our services also allow carers and loved ones some time to themselves.
How we can provide quality and tailored services to you.
We will work closely with you to understand your situation and provide the quality support that you need. This can be provided through a home care package or disability package or individually funded.
If you have reached your limit or are not eligible for government funded services, or wish to pay for additional support tailored to your needs, we have a range of services to assist you.
You do not need a referral and there is no waiting list.
We offer coordinated and quality services, tailored to meet your specific care needs.
These services are ideal for:
- Busy families in need extra support for a parent or loved one living with dementia.
- People who may not be eligible for government funded services or who wish to ‘top up’ the services they are already receiving.
- People who require one-off service or support on an ongoing basis.
- People who need extra support to enable then to remain at home for longer.
These groups can be accessed through home and community care (HACC), a home care package or disability support package. If you have reached your limit or are not eligible for government funded services you can opt to pay privately
