Active minds & wellbeing
The Active Minds and Wellbeing Program is a social support group program which provides a wide range of fun and flexible activities designed for people with memory loss and cognitive conditions including dementia.
Whether you want to meet new people, join in with activities and day trips, or you simply want to get out of the house and read a book or watch a film, our program can cater to your individual needs.
We offer a range of different activities because we know that when you spend your day enjoying your hobbies, being mentally active, developing friendships or contributing to your community, your happiness, confidence and quality of life is improved.
Depending on your interests, strengths and goals some of the activities you can enjoy as part of the program are:
- gardening, baking and cooking
- board games and puzzles
- excursions and attendance at community events
- walking, lawn bowls and quoits
- arts and craft
- music and singing.
How to participate
You’ll receive funding to participate in the initiative through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and we also accept referrals for people with younger onset dementia. Transport is usually available and a delicious and nutritious morning tea and lunch are provided.
If you don’t receive Commonwealth Home Support Programme funding, call our experienced care team on 1300 295 673 and we’ll help you make sense of the what’s available, how to get started, how much it costs or answer any other questions you may have, so it’s easy and hassle-free for you to make informed decisions.
