Patricia Hinchey Centre – 5352 9326


Our aim is to reduce the social isolation that can lead to poor health for our older residents. Day respite also offers carers a well-earned break from daily care-giving responsibilities. Participants also enjoy a nutritious meal in air-conditioned comfort.


Activities include: day outings; music; movies; exercise; art and fun activities to stimulate the brain.

Transport: people who live in Ararat can be collected and returned home in one of our three buses.

Fees: are dependent on individual circumstances, but in most cases are very reasonable.

Referral: anyone can make a referral to Patricia Hinchey Centre, we accept referrals from doctors; family; friends; or you!

Further information is available by contacting the Centre during office hours, telephone 5352 9326.

Please pass on our thanks to the staff at Patricia Hinchey Centre.  These people go far beyond their job, always with a smile, nothing is too hard for them.

Pleasant staff.  They listen and give a lot of their time in helping us in a time of need.

I wish to acknowledge the wonderful staff at Patricia Hinchey Centre for their valuable service for myself and my husband.  The welfare visits, activities and friendly face was amazing.
