Meeting up with friends, trying something new, keeping physically, mentally and socially active are all important particularly in our senior years.
To help meet this need, the Warnervale Wellness Centre in Hamlyn Terrace on the NSW Central Coast has now reopened – providing a friendly, welcoming and busy seniors hub connecting community and clients.
“The Centre offers diverse opportunities for seniors to enjoy a range of activities in a relaxed environment, while also promoting social connections, fun, confidence, security and wellness for locals receiving Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and Home Care support,” says Regional Manager, Northern NSW and South East Queensland, Nicola Rosenthal.
“When clients arrive at the Wellness Centre, they can choose from a range of activities focusing on health and wellbeing, independence, self-expression and companionship,” she said.
“Our friendly staff work with visiting seniors to design a support plan based on client choice, delivered by a local team of caring and skilled healthcare professionals. Respite care is also available.”
Seniors can participate in as much or as little as they choose with a calendar of activities from craft and singing, to gardening, exercise and cooking – or they can simply enjoy a game of cards or chess with light refreshments or a meal.
Regular visitor, John, “loves the garden and being able to look out onto the trees, sit in the sun and listen to the birds”, while Lyn, “always has a great chat and a laugh with fellow visitor, Pat”.
The Warnervale Wellness Centre is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5pm and is located at 1 Minnesota Road, Hamlyn Terrace.
The Centre has strict COVID-19 protocols in place with sanitising and additional cleaning. All staff and clients attending the Centre are required to have had the flu vaccine and are screened for Covid-19 symptoms.
