Day stay programme proving invaluable
Harbourview Rest Home offers a wonderful ‘‘day stay’’ programme where older people in the community are able to come along and join in the activities with the residents, partake in a delicious, nutritious two-course lunch along with morning and afternoon tea, while also enjoying the great company.
Participants are picked up from their home at around 9am and returned home again around 3.30pm.
This is proving to be a valuable community programme not only for participants but also their carers who know that their loved one is safe, enjoying themselves, and receiving good, nutritious meals while they take a much-needed break.
Offering companionship and a chance to experience new activities the programme is available Monday-Friday and costs $30 per day (which may be paid privately or carers’ entitlements may apply).
