The ceremony was held at Peninsula Tea Gardens (Tranby House, Maylands), where attendees enjoyed a beautiful morning tea.

"A little extra caring goes a long way"
This innovative program offers up to 2 hours of peer social visit monthly to isolated Home and Community Care (HACC) clients in their own home.This program aims to provide seniors living at home with the opportunity to socialise with others from the same cultural and linguistic background and maintain social connections. The participants of the visiting team are also HACC clients who volunteer their time to visit their peers. Seniors have an additional opportunity to be actively involved with the group’s activity such as singing, telling stories, showing photos, playing games and go for a walk or to the garden.
