Astley Care have been operating for over 30 years in the Gosnells/Armadale areas providing support for aged people, people with disabilities and their carers to remain living in the community with an increased quality of life. We offer a wide range of tailored and flexible services provided by motivated, skilled staff and volunteers helping you to live life to the fullest, in your community.
Astley Care provides Day Clubs funded by both
- The Home and Community Care Program(HACC) which are for social isolated people with or without a family carer and
- The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) which are for people who have a family carer who is in need of a break.
Both programs welcome people with dementia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from the LGBTI community and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to access our services.
At all programs a range of activities are available to promote wellness, including exercises, board games, quizzes, guest speakers and concerts and the groups are regularly taken on outings.
Clients are actively involved in planning the programs and they can choose their level of involvement in any activity.
