The highly experienced and caring team at our Lyndhurst Drive Centre in the Shoalhaven is skilled at communicating with their participants who have high to very high support needs. This day program provides both community access and in-centre activities that are social, diverse, and in line with the goals and interests of their participants. While activities range from cooking, swimming, and craft to cafes and music, Lyndhurst participants particularly love taking the train to a beautiful spot for a picnic. The Lyndhurst Drive centre provides personal care, mealtime assistance, and wheelchair transportation.
Park Road Centre
85 Park Road, Nowra
Learning life skills, having fun, and giving back to the community are at the heart of this Nowra-based centre, which mainly caters to younger participants with moderate to high support needs. The team built a pantry out the front of the centre filled with non-perishable items for anyone who needs them and become a well-known neighbourhood hub for providing help to people who are socially disadvantaged. Projects like these not only improve the Park Road participants’ practical skills but boost their confidence, sense of purpose, and self-esteem, and make them feel very connected to their community.
Rayleigh Drive Centre
92 Rayleigh Drive, Worrigee Phone: 4222 6200
Social, creative, and caring is how you would describe the participants of our Rayleigh Drive Centre, which is located in a quiet street in Worrigee. Their program is designed around the participants’ interests and goals, and while most of the week is devoted to creative and fitness activities like cooking, craft, drama, music, and swimming, they always make sure there is time for volunteering too. With this in mind, our participants collect donated food from Woolworths and cook Meals for Dignity – a charity providing essential services for people experiencing homelessness. For many years, participants from this centre have also been helping older residents in their community by volunteering with Meals on Wheels and at an IRT retirement home.
