Hawthorn House operates six days a week between 10.00am and 3.00pm and supports the needs of people living with dementia in the Great Southern region.
The home environment encourages people living with dementia, families, volunteers and staff to be a part of the household. This includes cooking lunch, planting vegetables, walking the dog, gathering eggs, participating in the children’s playgroup, fixing things in the shed or just enjoying a restful nap by the wood fire. Family carers can take a break from their caring role confident in the knowledge you will enjoy a great day with friends.
Providing a wide range of activities based on your strengths, identity and interests, the household provides meaningful engagement, stimulation and friendship in a specially designed enabling environment.
Family carers are invited to visit for regular support meetings or to attend special educational workshops.
Join the Men’s Shed, participate in a community with men from diverse backgrounds and make new friends. Sheds provide social interaction and help maintain strength, coordination, thinking skills and emotional wellbeing.
Home and community respite
An opportunity for you to connect with someone who understands you, and to meet other people living with dementia. Respite also gives your carer a chance to have a break. Available in your home or at Hawthorn House for a few hours, a few days, or anything in between (including overnight).
Social support groups
Social support groups provide an engaging and fun environment for people living with dementia. Ideal if you like to socialise, want to remain active in the community or make new friends.
Supporting you to continue living independently and engaging in the activities of your choice.
