Seniors

Seniors are important to our community in many different ways. We provide a range of older persons’ development services across the region.

Events

We deliver a range of activities for seniors throughout the year, including; bingo, trivia, concerts and craft activities. See the events register for details.

Health

The following services may be of interest:

  • Blue Care weekly respite (Goombungee and Meringandan districts).
  • The CHANGE project which aims to help you make healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Home and Community Care (HACC) lawn maintenance for Clifton, Nobby, Millmerran, Brookstead, Cecil Plains, Oakey, Kingsthorpe and Biddeston. Fees and charges differ with each HACC service and clients are responsible for the supply and cost of materials if advised by the service provider. Contact your local community health nurse or general practitioner to see if you are eligible for Home & Community Care services.
