Community Link Line Program
It is a telephone conferencing program that has been designed to reach those who are socially isolated or would like to socialise with people their own age/interest from their own homes.
Our telephone system allows our coordinator to involve up to 7 people from the community in a program run over the phone, with each session lasting approximately 1 hour. It involves general discussion, guest speakers, games, quizzes and craft activities. Members can also join in outings with members of the Divisional Therapy program.
There is no cost to participate in this program but must have a landline.
Myrtle Cottage will provide a door to door transport service for all participants attending our programs/ outings. Our fleet consists of six fully modified buses with hoists for people in wheelchairs or those unable to enter via the steps as well as rails and specially adapted steps to allow the most independent access for all participants.
Our dedicated staff members provide a transport service that is punctual with a flexible pick up schedule.
Volunteer drivers are an integral part of the Cottage’s operation. Without the giving of their time, expertise and skills, we would not be able to pick up all members for our various programs.
Members pay a Daily Subscription Fee of $10.00 for each attendance and any outing cost.
Usually outing costs are determined by the venue, with only the actual cost incurred e.g. Meal at a club, entry fee being charged, etc. In addition there is an annual Membership fee of $5.00.
