It’s all happening at Resthaven Limestone Coast Community Services, with an array of fun groups now available for older people in the area.
‘We do lots of great activities in our groups, including cooking, exercises, bus trips and games,’ says Resthaven Limestone Coast Community Services Manager, Liz Southall.
‘Group members meet new people, learn new skills, and remain socially connected.’
‘The number of people attending the groups continues to grow, with about ten people currently attending our Naracoorte Social Group.’
‘This group recently spent an afternoon making beautiful jewellery.’
‘Not to be outdone, the Millicent Men’s Group recently took a fishing trip up the river, coming home with an impressive catch.’
‘If you would like to join any of the groups listed (below), just contact our office on 8762 4389. Our staff team will be happy to help you.’
‘Alternatively, you can contact Government portal, My Aged Care, and let them know that you wish to join a Resthaven Limestone Coast Community Services group.’
‘We also offer overnight and day respite for carers at Naracoorte. We can provide transport to and from the respite cottage, so it is easier for everyone. Phone us to find out more about our respite services.’
