|Centre-Based Day Care and Respite for Carers|
We are a centre-based day care, Social Support and Respite centre for older people who are frail aged, people with a disability and their carers who live in the Bathurst Regional Area.
Our service aims to enable people in the Bathurst Region to live independently and participate in community life. To realise this vision, BSC provides a range of centre-based services, designed to enhance the wellbeing and quality of life of people who are frail aged, people with dementia and people with disabilities, and to provide support for their carers.
BSC’s services promote opportunities for social interaction and participation in a broad range of stimulating activities. We also provide centre based respite for carers so that they can have a break from their caring role for a few hours.
Senior members of our community are welcome. We undertake an assessment to ensure eligibility when new people join our service. We welcome people from all cultures. Who knows, you might bump into an old mate, make new friends or begin a life-long friendship.
We aim to provide as many options and choices as possible, so that the independence of older people is increased.
Our centre offers a safe, friendly and welcoming environment so that older people can learn new skills and are encouraged to keep healthy and active.
We provide a range of games, music, outings, entertainment, guest speakers, bingo, knitting club, cooking club, arts & crafts, bus drives, theme days, local walks, manicures, cards & euchre, quizzes and activities tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.
We provide respite for carers.
