The Patricia Hinchey Centre maintains a wide choice of enjoyable activities to offer to the increased number of older people and people with a disability who visit the Centre on a regular basis.
It is a welcoming place to meet, enjoy a meal together and importantly have fun. Some 25-30 people attend each day with over 400 visits per month with Home and Community Care client’s showing a favourable increase.
The focus is on improving the mental health and wellbeing through activities that are stimulating for attendees. The increased awareness of health and wellbeing has seen the review of our healthy menu and fresh fruit delivered 3 days per week which has been well received. Volunteers play a big part in the day to day activities which gives the centre more flexibility with activities, additional outings and importantly, strong bonds of friendship are developed.
