The Bell (Dementia) Program
This program has been designed to provide activities for people who have Dementia and to give their carers quality periods of respite. The Bell (Dementia) Program operates Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from our Ingleburn premises for people living in the Campbelltown Local Government Area. The Outreach (Dementia) Program operates in Camden on Wednesday and Wollondilly on Thursday in rented premises. The number of days members attend per week is dependent on the needs of the Carer or member and our ability to offer respite. The number attending each day depends on the level of dementia of those participating and the ability of trained staff and volunteers to support those attending.
Our Coordinator and program assistants are very experienced in dealing with people who have Dementia and can provide advice and information.
There is a client contribution fee for each day of attendance and costs associated with outings.
Any member who is genuinely unable to contribute towards the costs of attending any Program activity is asked to see the Manager, who will make special arrangements to ensure the member can participate in the program.
Outings are provided every six weeks and include visits to many local and regional places of interest, appropriate for persons with dementia.
