Baptcare offers a variety of social activity groups to individuals 65 years and above, who are living at home and have the desire to remain connected to their community. These services are available through our day centres. Individuals have access to a range of exciting programs including tai chi, craft sessions, music groups and outings.
This program is jointly funded by the Australian and Victorian Governments.
