Information & Referral
As a dedicated senior serving organization, we can assist with providing information and referral for friends, family and seniors themselves.
We strive to provide answers to questions including how to apply for your Old Age Pension, to finding a hairdresser to come to your home, to finding help on your driving when the time comes up for your ‘road test’, to where you can get someone to come and pick your apples or clean your house.
We may not provide the service but we should be able to steer you towards someone who does.
Please pop in to either of our centres for a visit. We will gladly give you a tour and information on our weekly and monthly events.
We encourage people to come and try an activity that piques their interest. Silver Threads Service membership is good at both centres.
