Description: The service offers support to frail older people (65 and over) and people with disability who live in the Canterbury-Bankstown and Georges River areas.
The social support groups give people the opportunity to meet others who speak the same language, share a cultural background, or share common interests. The program includes groups for English, Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Italian, Mandarin and Vietnamese speakers. The groups hear from guest speakers, participate in outings and social activities. They include morning tea and lunch.
Practical in-home assistance is provided through services for Domestic Assistance, Home Visiting, Home Maintenance and Gardening.
Also assists older people with their shopping by accompanying them to a major shopping centre (usually Roselands) or a list shopping service for those who are unable to do their shopping. The transport service takes clients to personal and medical appointments.
