    Resthaven actively runs support programs for people living with dementia.

    These programs are funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), and offer both individual and group activities for people over 65 years living with memory loss, with or without an identified carer.

    These tailored programs provide a supportive environment that aim to reduce isolation, strengthen community and social supports, promote wellness and independence, and provide memory support through Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and Brain Training.
