Keeping Social

If you’d like to get out and about we can assist with organising for you to attend social outings based on your interests. If you like, we can also accompany you.

Getting out and about

If you’d like to get out and about we can assist with organising – and if you like accompany you to - social events and outings based on your interests. Outings could include:

  • social clubs
  • volunteering
  • attending church
  • group outings in the community
  • visits to family and friends
  • community run courses
  • activities of your choice.

Digital training

If you’re not confident with technology but are keen to learn, we can assist. We can cover as much or as little as you like including:

  • setting up cost-effective devices and internet access
  • staying in touch with family and friends via email, Facebook and Skype
  • reading the news online
  • keeping your mind active with puzzles and interactive learning online.

Transport

We can assist with arranging transport to appointments, social events or outings so you can get out and about as much as you want. We can either come with you or we can arrange taxi vouchers for you to go alone.

‘The group offers a lot of camaraderie. We have a lot of fun and laugh. Because dementia is a very strange thing to wade your way through.’

David, Younger Onset Dementia client

GREAT FEEDBACK WE GET

‘To see the relief in their face when they know that they don’t have to deal with those problems on their own. That we are here to help. That’s really rewarding.’

Michelle, Client Advisor

GREAT FEEDBACK WE GET

Cheryl, daughter of client

GREAT FEEDBACK WE GET

‘They keep me in the picture all of the time. My Client Advisor is in touch with me regularly and offering me any services that are available and might be suitable for me. It makes a tremendous difference and I wouldn’t know where to begin without their help’  

Maria, In-home support client

GREAT FEEDBACK WE GET

‘I owe a lot to Alice (Client Advisor) She suggests things such as the Singing for Wellness program and I always say no at first. Then I think on it and realise that she is right, it is good for me to have a break too. I’m a juggler you see, I juggle caring for husband, the gardening, my handcrafted rug and seeing my friends. These lessons make me appreciate my free time’

Alison, In-home support client and carer
