Welcome to the Day Therapy Centre

DAY THERAPY CENTRE
text

Day Therapy is available to older people living in the community.
It is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Wednesdays and Fridays are tailored especially for the needs of older Italians in the community.
Day Therapy provides physical rehabilitation, cognitive stimulation and social programs and it is coordinated with input from a qualified therapy team. Upon arrival, participants relax over morning tea before beginning the day's activities which are designed to be fun and therapeutic. Lunch is served at midday, and in the early afternoon, participants return to their homes. We have the capacity to collect participants and return them home for a small fee if the participants wish.

Assessment

When you attend our day therapy centre, you will be assessed by health professionals to ensure that we identify your needs and your abilities. From the assessments, this allows us to formulate a therapy plan that meets your needs as an individual.

Attendance Costs

All users who attend our Day Therapy Service are either directly or indirectly liable for the costs for the service. This is inclusive of Morning Tea, 2 course lunch and access to all Health services and activities at:

  • $20 per session (includes refreshments and lunch.)
  • $25 per session (includes refreshments, lunch and transport.)

Transport

We are able to offer transport subject to availability. We provide a pick up and drop off service to surrounding areas in an air-conditioned vehicle, which has a hoist onboard. Extra charges do apply.

Activities

Activities offered are designed to meet different needs. This includes improving or maintaining dexterity and mobility, cognition, socialisation and integration, and lifestyle pursuits. In addition, we celebrate clients’ birthdays each month.

Outings

Although the day centre is based within our facilities at Marangaroo, during the year we have organised outings for clients of the centre. These have included trips to Fremantle Maritime Museum and to the Swan Valley. We always gain consent from clients to go on these outings due to them occurring off-site.

Meals

Meals are prepared and cooked on the premises and meet nutritional requirements of older individuals. Our meals are mostly culturally appropriate to our clients’ taste, but also provide the opportunity to enjoy other cuisine. We try to cater for special diets and personal needs wherever possible.
