We prioritise socialisation at Carinya Care, as we believe that by getting our care recipients involved and encouraging their participation in social activities, they will be healthier and happier.

Our team create a monthly calendar of events based on the holistic needs of our care patients – mental and physical – and take into account the importance of cultural diversity.

We bring in performers at least once a month for concerts, have regular cultural and theme days, engage with schools for children’s visits, and generally make sure there is always something fun happening that care recipients can look forward to and enjoy.

Some of our events and activities are:

  • Bingo
  • Table Games
  • Happy Hour
  • Word Games and Quizzes
  • Pet Therapy
  • Bus Trips – twice a month, one of which will be to a shopping venue
  • Special Theme Days – Mother’s Day High Tea, Father’s Day BBQ etc.
  • Coffee Club
  • Therapy balloons
  • Multi-cultural event days: St Patrick’s day celebrations, AFL days
  • Current Affairs
  • Men’s group
