CBDC includes group excursions and activities, both in and away from the centres. Clients love the trips out of town to waterholes, the river and larger towns.
When the weather is more conducive to inside activities, painting, arts and crafts, gentle exercise, music, bingo, board games and looking at old photos are favourites.
Clients dine in at the Centres for a light breakfast and lunch. Many prefer to take their midday meal home.
Meals are not delivered over the weekend or public holidays. Over longer breaks, such as Easter and Christmas, hampers are made up and delivered to Clients to ensure they have adequate food supplies.
Personal care is provided at all Day Centres on a daily basis.
Personal care includes assistance with showering, eating, hair care, shaving and grooming.
Domestic assistance is generally centre based where Clients bring linen and clothing to be washed. Very occasionally clients receive in-home domestic assistance.
Transport is provided to assist people in leaving their homes and communities to undertake shopping, hospital and doctor appointments, visit family and friends, other service providers and the day centre.
Nursing services are provided across all our Centres and include dressings, medication prompting, health assessments, monitoring, referral and nutritional education.
Cottage and Desert Mobile respite is available to care recipients. With the capacity to offer overnight care at all our facilities, we also have a fully equipped camper trailer. This enables Clients to return to their place of birth, visit places of cultural significance and visit family and children that have been absent from their lives for many years.
Social support includes social activities and assistance with day to day tasks such as shopping, banking, paying bills and letter writing.
