Multicultural Dementia Day Care Program
The Multicultural Dementia Day Care Program is one of four Aged Care Programs offered by MDSI. The program provides day activities for people who have dementia at the same time providing a much needed respite break and information and support for the carer.
Groups are held in a safe, home-like environment. Activities such as craft, gentle exercise, music therapy and outings are tailored to meet needs of clients with all levels of memory loss who come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and may be losing their ability to speak English. Groups run Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
The program is delivered by experienced staff as well as volunteers of relevant language and cultural backgrounds. Transport to and from the centre as well as lunch are provided.
A referral can be made by a service provider, friend, carer, family member etc by contacting program coordinator . After the referral is received the program coordinator will arrange for a home visit to complete an assessment.
Service fees for dementia care are $12.00 per day.
