Active Ageing Program

Active Ageing is a centre based community participation service for older adults. The program operates Monday to Friday for 48 weeks each year. Each client has the opportunity to attend for 18 hours per week. Hours are flexible, with most clients attending between 9am and 3pm or 10am and 4pm. Holiday programs and additional days and hours, beyond those covered by the client’s funding, are available for a fee.

Active Ageing caters to adults aged 55 to 64 years with moderate to high support needs and living at home with their family. People with physical as well as intellectual disabilities are welcome in the service.

Active Ageing is conducted by qualified and experienced staff under the direction of Minimbah Management.

We work with each client, their family and carers to identify personal goals for engagement in the service.

The service provides opportunities to participate in flexible day services and activities that meet individual’s goals, health and activity levels, life stage, interests and changing support needs.

The particular focus is on:

  • Activities relevant to the individual needs of the client
  • Assistance with retirement planning
  • Respite for elderly parents who are continuing to care for their family member at home.

The Minimbah program provides Active Aging clients with the opportunity to mix with other adults of all ages, from school leavers to people reaching retirement.
