Our organisation coordinates three social groups which meet fortnightly in our function room in Ulladulla. Social groups operate from 10.00am to 2.00pm with transport provided for group members who require to be picked up and delivered home. People who attend enjoy a freshly prepared meal in the company of others, a range of activities, occasional outings, but most importantly have a lot of fun while supporting their independence and social interaction.
Home Visits & Accompanied Outings
Individual support can be provided through companionship visits to people who are socially isolated and lonely. Home visits are undertaken by volunteers on a fortnightly or monthly basis for 2 hours per visit. Home visit activities could include reading books, playing games, help with writing letters or just having a cuppa and a chat. Accompanied outings assist people to stay active in our local community and build social connections. Our volunteers are happy to wander through the local nursery, help shop for a special gift, attend local medical appointments, or simply enjoy an outing to look at the whales and have a chat.
With the help of volunteers we operate a monthly card making group for the crafty person in you, or a scrabble group, for those who enjoy challenging the brain. Volunteers facilitate these groups and transport can be arranged to assist people to attend.
We can coordinate a personalised shopping service to support our older community members. Our shopping service is provided by our dedicated volunteers who will collect the itemised shopping list from the client, complete the shopping and deliver the groceries back to the client. Our shopping services can be completed as a one off service or provided regularly to support our client to remain living independently in their own home.
