Active Living Program for Seniors.
Able Australia’s Active Living Program for Seniors (ALPS) facilitates a number of free interactive workshops, activities and events for seniors across the Ipswich, Somerset, Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim Regions.
The program provides a great opportunity to meet new friends, try new activities and get active in your local community. There is also the opportunity to engage with a wide range of organisations who offer services in the community.
By seeking feedback and suggestions from those participating in the program, we aim to offer activities that everyone will enjoy and encourage you to be involved too.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact Able on 1300 225369 or our Ipswich Office
Community Visitors Scheme.
The Community Visitors Scheme is Government funded to provide friendship and companionship between residents and their visitor. We coordinate volunteers to make visits to Aged Care facilities and ensure eligible residents are given the opportunity to have a companion. Whether as a volunteer or a recipient of the service, we help to get involved and provide the opportunity to make a difference to someone else.
