Our 14 Social and Wellness Centres, also known as respite centres, provide a space where you can socialise and join in a range of activities such as arts and crafts, outdoor games, outings to interesting locations and events, board games, music and film screenings. Whatever your interests and abilities we will cater to you.
Our centres across Sydney, Illawarra and the Blue Mountains offer day programs in a friendly and supportive environment. You will find a focus on wellness and lifestyle promoting independence through social support and restorative care.
To ensure true person-centred care you will find Anglicare’s Rhythm of life principles being carried out in all our centres which promotes independence, choice and self-esteem in those living with dementia. Some of the ways we support your independence is by displaying directional signage to show the way, invitational signage to encourage activity to promote freedom and independence on how people choose to spend their day, arranging tables into a smaller, more friendly environment that encourages interaction and conversation and name tags for staff.
We can arrange transport for you, and meals are included in the daily activities plan.
Are you carer who needs respite? You can rest assured that your family member will be taken care of while you have a break from your carer role.
