Our program assists socially isolated elderly residents aged 65 and over (50 and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents) to participate in community-based social activities.
It is funded through the Commonwealth Home Support Program and managed through My Aged Care.
We provide door-to-door transport to our Social Support Centre in Ivanhoe. There, we facilitate a range of activities including gentle exercise, concerts, guest speakers, discussion groups, art and craft workshops, gardening tutorials and a range of bus outings to interesting venues.
We also provide a freshly prepared lunch and morning tea.
