Uniting Aged Care provides care, support and socialisation opportunities for older people, people living with a disability and people living with dementia and their carers.
Our Social Support programs are jointly funded by the Australian and Victorian government (Department of Health and Ageing) and Tasmanian government (Department of Health and Human Services), Home and Community Care (HACC) program.
Programs offered include:
Social Groups & Leisure Activities
Aimed at building social networks and bringing people together with common interests.
Programs based on small group outings to a variety of venues including restaurants, exhibitions, movies and more.
