Seniors Centre Membership gives you access to three senior centres.
You can visit the centre and try the activities before deciding to become a member.
Any members aged 65+ and registered with My Aged Care can access subsidised meals and activities.
The membership period aligns with the financial year July - June each year and a yearly membership fee ($10) applies to those who attend programs at the centre.
Participants also pay a weekly participant fee of $3-$7 depending on the program.
The centre is set-up for independent people. People requiring support / assistance to attend a group or use the facilities of the centre will need to be supported by a carer or support person. Agency workers referring a client to the centre need to liaise with the Coordinator Wellbeing Programs on 8406 8251 as early as possible as there is a set referral process.
People who are not members can still access fresh take-away meals and/or frozen meals at Jack's Café.
Staff can also give you information about help at home through Home Assist and the Housing Support Program.
Home Assist services have been extended to assist all senior residents with essential services during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Please contact Home Assist on 8406 8225 to discuss your requirements.
