People with a diagnosis of dementia experience many changes to their day-to-day lives, which can lead to a sense of loss of meaning and purpose. 

This programme enables people to connect into communities and break down stigmas associated with the condition whilst also keeping physically, mentally and socially active. The programme allows people to feel valued while also providing structure and embracing spontaneity. Each day presents opportunities to build new relationships with people and the surrounding environment.

A Home and Community Care (HACC) referral is generally required, although we also accept brokered clients through other organisations. 

If you are not receiving any services or need a referral, call RAS on 1300 785 415.
