Heretaunga Seniors, Community Centre for Older People is open to the community four days a week. We invite you to come along and join us for some fun and friendship in a place that is both warm and welcoming. This is a place “where everyone knows your name”.
We know that it is difficult whatever your age, to join a new group so we try to make this process much easier. You can contact our service yourself or someone else such as your Doctor another health professional or family member may make a referral. In the first instance we will get your contact details and arrange, if you wish, for our friendly ‘Pastoral Care Co-ordinator’ to pop around and meet you. She will talk to you about what you would like to happen, tell you about our service, give you some written information as well as arranging transport for you if you would like to attend the Centre and will even ring to remind you before you are picked up on the day.
To make sure that you feel comfortable coming along to the Centre on your first couple of weeks we ‘buddy’ you up with one of our volunteers who will help you familiarise yourself with us and the surroundings.
