The Day Centre maintains a wide choice of enjoyable activities to offer to the increased number of older people who visit the Centre on a regular basis. It is a welcoming place to meet, enjoy a meal together and importantly have fun.
The focus is on improving the mental health and wellbeing through activities that are stimulating for attendees.
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.
Community Nursing continues to be a familiar and friendly sight to those in the local community. Community Nursing in Ararat and Willaura has been successful in achieving aims of maintaining clients in their home environment, often eliminating the need for a hospital admission.
Community Nurses continue their involvement in discharge planning and work closely with other professionals such as Palliative Care, GP’s, Post Acute Care and Allied Health. Staff are skilled to work autonomously whilst maintaining vital health links with the Medical Centre. This combined approach ensures patient’s needs are recognised and implemented in a co-ordinated and responsive manner.
