Day Centre – Friendship Club
Village Baxter Community Care Daycentre has been operating for over 25 years. Our programs are designed to stimulate social and recreational skills for the older members of our community.
We promote independence and re-enablement.
Village Baxter is a Not for Profit Aged Care Facility set on 75 acres of landscaped bushland. We provide Independent Living, Residential Aged Care and Community Care Services for the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas. The Village has been operating since 1973 and The Daycentre opened in 1992.
We provide quality care in a group setting which we aim to individualise so that all of our members have a wonderful time when they are at the club. Our members book in with us on a weekly basis, so making friends is part of the fun.
We specialise in programs for those suffering dementia or other memory related illnesses, physically frail, dependent, socially isolated or who are Culturally and Linguistically diverse. The centre is staffed by three professional carers, some of who speak a second language, at each session and is supported by volunteer services to provide a stimulating program designed to enhance the opportunities for each member.
To be referred to become a member of our Daycentre you must contact My Aged Care, which is a National Contact Centre for all Aged Care services.
We are funded through the Commonwealth Home Support Program – Social Support Groups.
