Our Community Activity Programme for the Older Person, is a daily activity programme for over 65’s who still live at home or independently in the residential setting and are seeking additional support improving and maintaining their current everyday life, health, and wellbeing. We also offer Carer Support of their loved one in a safe and friendly environment allowing the Carer time out to recharge.
We accommodate 20 members each day – Monday to Friday, 10am – 2.30pm, and are fully operational 49 weeks of the year. A delicious home cooked 2 course meal, morning and afternoon tea is provided.
The Evergreen Club embraces the aging process and sees it as an opportunity to make friends, learn a new activity, keep our bodies nourished and supple, and active. Our caring team of well-trained and experienced staff keep the programme interesting and fun for the members whilst fully monitoring their individual health, cognitive and dietary needs.
Our vision is to see our members valued by society and encouraged and supported to live a healthy, and independent life in the community for as long as possible.
This programme is primarily supported by Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand Waitaha Canterbury and is a free service upon recommendation from your GP or Allied Health Professional.
We welcome telephone inquiries and look forward to hearing from you. Visits by arrangement.
