Stay Active and Social at our Day Centres

Our day centre program focuses on community engagement and social opportunities, while still providing the care needed to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Why join a Day Centre Program?

Older people can participate in a variety of activities in a friendly, warm and supportive environment. It’s a great way to enjoy social networking , have a meal together, meet some likeminded people while receiving professional care.

What happens there?

The most important aspect of the Day Centre is that everyone has a great time. The attendees’ interests lead all activities, so any day might include gardening, arts & crafts, exercising, group outings, multicultural activities, and much more.

Morning tea and lunch are available. Pick up and drop off can also be arranged from certain locations.

What are the benefits of a Day Centre?

The positive outcomes achieved in our day centre include:

  • social and preventive services
  • independence
  • positive health benefits
  • daily living needs, and
  • respite to caregivers

Who Can Join?

It’s not necessary to be a Home Care client or resident of Southern Cross Care to visit the Day Centre. All are welcome to join a community of like-minded people to enjoy a day of fun and new friends.

How is it funded?

The Day Centre is part of the Southern Cross Care’s Home & Community Services range of services, and can be funded from a Home Care Package, even if it is with a different organisation, through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or by private arrangement.
