Thursday Midday [Planned Activity Group]
Thursday Midday is a weekly program providing social opportunities for people with varying health issues. Professionally trained staff provide dementia specific activities promoting social, physical, intellectual and emotional wellbeing.
Thursday Midday also provides the opportunity for quality respite time for carers.
Thursday Midday meets Thursdays from 10.30am to 1.30pm.
Planned Activity Groups (PAGs) are provided for people living in our community that are no longer enjoying the social benefits of being part of a community group.
Our groups provide the opportunity for people to get together and enjoy a day out, while helping to maintain their independence within the community.
All of our groups provide social support where people can:
- Enjoy the company of others
- Share experiences
- Relax and reminiscence
- Share meals
- Enjoy the benefits of regular exercise
All groups have regular guest speakers and offer monthly outings.
PAGs operate Monday to Friday (excluding Public Holidays) and are supported by a team of volunteers. GLCH is always looking for more volunteers to assist with these programs.
