Our day centres are often said to be the best in the country.

Friendship Clubs & Social Support Groups

Friendship Clubs and Social Support Groups provide a safe environment for people living with dementia to socialise, remain active in the community and maintain relationships. We offer these groups throughout the metropolitan area and in some regional centres. 

An important aspect of the groups is that members have input into club activities to foster a sense of belonging and club ownership.

A staff member from our respite team will come and meet with new club members before they commence attending a group, so that it can be decided how needs can be met. As well as providing benefits for those living with dementia, our services also allow carers and loved ones some time to themselves. 

With a referral, you can access groups that are funded by Home and Community Care program. 

If you are already receiving HACC services, all you need to do is call the Regional Assessment Services (RAS) assessor and ask for a referral to Alzheimer’s Australia WA to join a social support group. 

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

You can also access groups as a private customer.
