Engage with others for life

Ourcare Services Ltd offers a social support service providing its clients with a safe and friendly environment to socialise.

Ourcare supports clients to stay fit and healthy, providing an opportunity to make friends, to keep in touch with the community and engage in a variety of activities.

With great emphasis on exercising the mind and body for good health, the mini brain gym daily along with a fun exercise program keeps clients active and improves stability and strength.

Ourcare promotes an enabling approach, which encourages people to remain independent and improve their wellbeing.

The Active Lifestyle Centre runs four days a week located at the Ourcare Community Services Building for people who are over 65, have a disability, dementia, memory loss, or younger onset dementia.

People on a NDIS package can access the centre as part of their plan.

Those on a home care package can access the centre through their package or privately. The over 65s will need to access our social support service through my aged care.

A monthly program is available listing all the planned activities for the upcoming month. It includes all the outings, art classes, theme days, entertainment, physical and cognitive games and activities.

We have a hot lunch available each day and community transport may be available.

Ourcare offer a ladies and gentleman’s hairdressing service available twice a month at a very reasonable rate.

A monthly social lunch is held at the Active Lifestyle Centre on the first Friday of each month and provides a great opportunity for people to meet.

Three times a month there is a social outing for the day, enjoying the scenery, places of interest and stopping for lunch. There is also a men’s group that go on a social outing twice a month.

You can attend the Active Lifestyle Centre on any of the four days scheduled on the program.

The days and times are as follows: Mondays: from 9am to 1pm, Tuesdays: from 9am to 3pm, Wednesdays: from 9am to 1pm, Thursdays: from 9am to 3pm

The service is flexible and runs according to clients’ needs, so if you can only attend for half a day, morning or afternoon you can still attend.
