Dementia Care Site Map
Planned Activity Group

 

For people living with dementia and their carers, maintaining social contact and engaging in meaningful, enjoyable activities in your local community is vital to wellbeing.

 

HACC funded planned activity groups provide opportunities for making social connections and enhancing physical, intellectual and emotional wellbeing.

 

These groups support the care relationship by assisting carers to gain some respite from the care role. Groups meet at a local venue or go on group outings.

 

Some agencies may offer dementia specific planned activity groups, culturally diverse groups etc. for information on your local options contact your local HACC Assessment Service or see Planned Activity Services below.
