Positive programs for seniors

The Mernda Social Support Centre is a dedicated hub aimed at enhancing the lives of our older residents.

The new facility has partnered with leading organisations to offer a diverse range of programs focused on improving both physical and mental wellbeing.

“The Mernda Social Support Centre is more than just a facility; it’s a community hub fostering health, happiness and connection for our older residents,” said Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson.

“We believe in the importance of providing a range of activities that promote independence and a sense of fulfillment.”

Exciting offerings by the City of Whittlesea include a Dementia Friendly Group on Mondays, Social Connection Art and Craft on Fridays, and the delightful Morning Melodies, a program where you can enjoy music, sing along, dance and catch up with friends and connect with others.

Wollert resident Joan recently attended Morning Melodies at the Mernda Social Support Centre.

Making new friends has been an added bonus to the Morning Melodies. I look forward with anticipation to each new get together, said Joan.

“The opportunity of meeting new people, enjoying the diverse music and entertainment as well as being provided with morning tea has been a wonderful way of communicating and connecting with so many people in our area,” she said. Visit to find a calendar of positive ageing activities.
