Making the most of every day.
St John’s Community Care recognises that a holistic approach is needed to ensure quality of life. We enrich lives through arts therapy, access to allied health services, social activities, multicultural friendship groups and a woodwork shed.
Staying active is a priority for seniors and for most the key to successful ageing. Our music, dancing and singing therapy program is particularly popular for its health and social benefits. Our organisation also provides seniors group sessions with allied health professionals in the areas of occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social work and nutritional advice.
Something to suit everyone.
Our health, wellness and social groups can be separated into two primary types: Social Support Group and Multicultural Group.
The Social Support Group team incorporates seniors’ social activities, mentally stimulating games, gentle exercises and guest speakers discussing a wide range of topics. Regular outings are based on each group’s preferences and interests and programs are delivered by experienced staff who are carefully matched with each group’s language and cultural needs. Furthermore, the program can provide an opportunity for family carers to have a break from their caring role, knowing that their loved one is in a safe and fun environment.
The Multicultural Group enables seniors to meet and engage in social games and entertainment with their peers on a weekly basis. The program provides an alternative to other groups that are constantly out and about. The aim of these friendship groups is to gather seniors from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and allow them to meet with service providers and community groups who share the same language or culture. Attendees have the opportunity to share their experiences, learn more from the experts and ask questions about aged care services.
Individual sessions can also be arranged with qualified professionals if needed, which includes therapeutic and preventative health services and podiatry.
